Choose a projection in the WMS Server

Hi, Guys, my first time here. I'm enjoy using the Global Mapper but just have one issue.

I have a WMS Server which have one layer with 2 different projections, one is Decimal Degree and the other one is Spherical Mercator. My GetCapabilities XML is like this.

<LatLonBoundingBox minx="-180" miny="-90" maxx="180" maxy="90" />
<BoundingBox SRS="EPSG:4326" minx="-180" miny="-90" maxx="180" maxy="90" />
<BoundingBox SRS="EPSG:900913" minx="-20000000" miny="-20000000" maxx="20000000" maxy="20000000" />

The thing is that when I use GlobalMapper 10 connecting to the server, the request globalMapper sends is always with "EPSG:4326". Even I set GlobalMapper's projection to 900913 (Tools->Configure…->Projection Tab->Init from EPSG, input 900913, and then click OK) it still send requests with "EPSG:4326", but just do the reprojection on client side streching the tiling images to 900913 itself. So my question is, is there any way that I can set in GlobalMapper to specify which projection I'm looking for from the server, so it sends the request with "EPSG:900913" to the server in my case?

Thanks in advance!
