Angry Help with Mozilla Mail - multiple email servers

I have two email servers I pull mail from.
address 1 = (
address2 = (
outgoing =

I can pull from both servers fine. however I can only send 'from' the server which is setup as the default outgoing server ( - If I try and send the email with the 'from' address from the second address ( the send fails.
