Mac mail sends with one gmail account but the recipient sees it sent from another gmail account. Help?

I have the Mac mail app on my 2011 MBP. I have one Microsoft exchange account and 3 gmail accounts set up in mail and all receive mail just fine.
If I send an email with gmail1 and check my sent email, it shows as being sent from gmail1. When I get a response, however, the response always comes to gmail3. When I look at the email that was sent (via the reply), it shows as being sent from gmail3.
I don't want gmail3 to be used for important emails. I can receive emails sent directly to gmail1 without issue, so my mailbox is not full. I check the drop down menu in the new email box and I am definitely choosing the right gmail account.
Why do all my emails seem to go out through gmail3 even though I want them (and try to force them) through gmail1? How can I fix this?
