Email replies showing up in my other email account

Email replies showing up in my other email account

I have a main email address with a couple a linked email addresses which do not get used frequently. Yesterday I replied to an email from my main email account from my phone and wondered why didn't I get a response. Later in the day I check my secondary account (from my computer) the reply I had been waiting for had been sent there instead of back to my mail account. This is not the first time it has happened.  What is going on?

Re: Email replies showing up in my other email account

On the computer, do you have the primary account enabled in a desktop client like Outlook, Thunderbird or something like that?  If so, it sounds like the "Reply to" address in your client's settings is set to the secondary address.

 

Alternately, even without a client, do you have any filters set up in the primary account to re-direct messages from one or more  senders to the secondary address?

Re: Email replies showing up in my other email account

This only happens sporadically but always to an email where a timely reply is important. Makes me nervous to think that emails are not getting where they need to go.
