You cannot set up the default From or Reply-to address value in Microsoft® Outlook natively.

This utility allows you to insert any address/alias you wish to the "From:" and/or "Have replies sent to:" field of each new message.

If you have a shared mailbox or a group you have been given permission to send as, SetFrom will help you to pre-populate the From: or Reply-To: address.
