Change Default Email Address

After updating to the new device software, v4.5, my default email address changed.  Composing a new message on my BB automatically selects my BB email address, instead of the xxx@sbcglobal.net that was the default address.  I have looked on BIS for a place to set the default address, and have also checked everywhere I can think of on the device, but can't find a place to identify the default address.  I'm sure someone will know exactly where to do this (please)?
