How to control which email is used by default

If you are like me and you use more than one email address on your iPhone you probably have one address you use more than the other(s).

To make life a little simpler you should set this as your default email address - here's how...

1 - Go to Settings


2 - Scroll down and tap Mail


3 - Scroll down to the bottom and tap Default Account

Default Account

2 - Tap Cc/Bcc, From:

Tap Cc, Bcc, From
