Setting Default From Address in IOS4
June 29, 2010 5:46 PM   Subscribe

How do I set the default email address on my iPhone 3GS running IOS4?

I have two email accounts: one at Gmail and one at Yahoo. If I go to "All Inboxes" and tap the "New Message" icon in the bottom right corner of the screen, a new email message appears and the "From" address defaults to the Yahoo address. I would like it to default to the "Gmail" address, but I can't find a setting that seems to control this behavior.

I know that I can manually change the "From" when I send an email, but I would rather have it default to the correct address.

Help? :)

Wow, never mind, please. I'm remarkably stupid. :)

The default email used is what is set in the Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> Default Account (scroll about 2/3rds down the page)
