Default Default Account keeps changing

I am running SBS 2003 and I have 2 Vista Laptops running Office 2007.
When I set an smtp account as the default account in Outlook, after I
reboot, my default email account gets changed back the Exchange
Account, which I don't want. This happens with 2 different laptops
belonging to 2 different users.

Is there a setting in SBS that overrides this each time the laptops
log onto the domain? I've gone through it and I can't find anything.

You can't have both POP and Exchange in the same profile. You need to set up
separate profiles.

Yes, you can have both POP3 and Exchange in the same profile. As a matter of fact, you can have IMAP and HTTP in the same profile.

Please check your information before providing misleading answers.

I have had this hundreds of times before and just changed my default
to a POP3 with no problem. However, I decided to use SBS 2003 on my
network when I upgraded my office server because a number of my
clients use it, but now I have this issue.

Thanks guys. The way I ended up getting around it was that I added the
smtp addresses to the Active Directory for each user in the Email
Addresses tab and then set that smtp account as primary.
