I am using Outlook 2010 (RTM) and I have a domain account (ac1). I have added access to another account (ac2) to Outlook. I can read e-mail from both accounts and when I hit "New e-mail" I can send an e-mail from ac1. If I reply to an e-mail sent to ac2 Outlook displays a "From" field, similar to the "To" field, pre-populated the the ac2 identity. That's all fine and dandy! But if I want to create a new e-mail and send it as ac2, how do I do that? I've been looking for a "New e-mail as..." button and a way of displaying the "From field" in create new message, but no luck so far...

There is a dropdown box where it says from. You can choose the two accounts, or type in your "other email address" as per old versions of outlook.

But the "From" field does not show up... – noocyte Jul 12 '10 at 5:29
Open the "options" tab within a new email, then click "From" The from field should then show up for you. – northirid Jul 12 '10 at 5:44
