Tech Tip: Picking a Default Account in Mac Mail
Q. I have multiple accounts established up in the Mac’s default Mail system. I recognize from time to time when I create a concept, Mail quickly sets the sender tackle to the account I use for private correspondence and not my favored property-organization account. How can I specify that my company account ought to be the default sender handle?
A. You can manually swap accounts on a new Mail message by deciding upon an address from the fall-down menu in the Sender industry, but if you have a favored handle, you can designate it as your default outgoing handle for new messages. To do so, open up the program and, under the Mail menu in the top-left corner, pick Tastes. (If you are already in the Mail system, press the Command and comma keys to open up the app’s Tastes box.)
In the Mail Tastes box, click on the Composing tab and go to the Addressing segment in the middle of the box. In the “Send new messages from” location, click on the drop-down menu and pick out your chosen account, then close the Choices box. The messages you develop from this level must have your picked tackle set in the sender.
