OS X :: Default Account To Send Email With In Mail?

Mar 31, 2009

In my Mail app I currently have two email accounts set up. One is my main email and one is my college email. I only use the college email account because my school sends all of their stuff through it so I need to monitor it. For some reason however, this account has become the default account that Mail wants to send through. To use the other account I have to click the drop down menu under the subject field. This happens even though my main account is the top account on that drop down menu. I have looked through all the preferences and cannot see where I can choose a default sending account.

Applications :: Mail Replying From Wrong Email Account / Sends Mail From Other Account

Feb 12, 2009

MBP, OS X 10.4.11, Mail v2.1.3.

I have more than one email account set up on Mail and the strangest thing happens and I can't find out how to stop it.

Here is the problem:

- I have 2 accounts, 'Account A' is for my partner & 'Account B' is for me.
- Someone sends an email to 'Account A' (my partner) and CCs 'Account B' (me) into the same eMail.
- If I click reply from 'Account B' it sends the eMail from 'Account A' which is my partner, when it should be from me.

I have worked out that this is because 'Account A' was originally sent the eMail in The 'To' field as opposed to the 'CC' field in composing the reply eMail. I know that I can manually change the 'From' field every time when replying to an eMail but it becomes an nuisance. I forget to do it when quickly replying as I consider Mail to reply from the account that I'm reading the email from.

I have gone to the compose section in the preferences and there is an option for changing this when composing a new email but nothing when replying.

Applications :: Respond To Mail From One Account Using Another By Default

Dec 31, 2009

how I could setup Mail (Snow Leopard) to automatically cause my replies to mail sent to one of my accounts (which I'm trying to phase out) to be sent from another account? I currently don't have the account I'm trying to phase out configured for SMTP, so the message sending fails (and I want to keep it that way), but I have to manually change the address the message is sent from each time I reply to a message someone sends me at that address.

Applications :: Can Use Another Email Client As A Default Or Does It Have To Be Mail

Jan 1, 2010

For various reasons I prefer to use Entourage as my default e-mail client, but although I have set Entourage to be my default email client in Preferences whenever another application tries to send an automated email (Such as iCal for an alarm) then it tries to open Mail which is not set up...

Does anyone know if its possible to change this? I don't like being forced to use Mail.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Change Default Email Program?

Mar 15, 2012

Like I presume everyone else, Mail is our default email program.

However I have recently been using Postbox and I rather like it, so I have sidelined Mail.

Problems arise when I schedule reminders and invitations from iCal - it immediately wants to start up the Mail program and not Postbox.

At the moment I am running the two email programs alongside each other which really isn't practical.

OS X :: Different Contact Email Default When Using Different Mail Accounts

Feb 16, 2009

I've come across a strange problem that I'm not sure if Mac Mail will be able to deal with natively. Basically, I have several contacts in my address book that have 2 addresses; work and home. I also have 2 mail accounts set up; my work account and my home account. I've run into a few problems at work when I'm sending email to colleagues as it was auto-selecting their personal addresses when I typed in their names. I managed to fix that but now when I send mail from my personal account, the auto-select chooses their work email first so I have to scroll down to choose their personal account.

Is there a way of getting mail to understand that if I'm sending mail from my personal account, then "home" addresses should show up first in auto-complete but if I'm sending from my work account, then "work" addresses should show up first? I understand this is probably a bit of a long shot without a third party tool but thought it best to ask!

ITunes :: Change An Email Address With An Unverified Account?

Jun 6, 2012

My dad needed an Apple ID account, so we did the usual (registering and such). There was a confusion with the email address and I by mistake put the wrong email address down. The email account I wrote down is perhaps in use or perhaps not, but most importantly the billing information is on the account. How do I change the address to something else? Will the email be sent to a person who will take advantage of the bank credentials?

OS X Leopard :: Default Port Mail Used To Send Email

May 26, 2009

My ISP sent an email that they want me to change the port my email program uses. They said most programs use port 25 and they wanted it changed to port 587 because it's safer. I called them to clarify and the tech had me change my Mail 3.6 preferences/advanced from port 995 to port 110 which he said was safer. Doing so renders me unable to e-mail so I switched it back to port 995. He couldn't figure out why 110 wouldn't work and suggested I contact Apple. I need to make any changes to my Mail account or not based either on the message from my ISP or the change the tech was trying to make. Unless I hear otherwise I'm staying at 995.

MacBook Pro :: Using Outlook As Default Email Client Instead Of Mail?

Mar 29, 2012

I used to use Mail as my default email client, but then my company insisted on me using Outlook instead. I have successfully gone into Mail > Preferences > General and changed the default reader to Outlook and that works great. This is the problem: when I cmd click on a file, I have an option to select "New Email As Attachment". This is still defaulting to Mail.
