Re: Default e-mail Sender

Options > Advanced > Default Services. Select there your default sending email and save.


Your BB device will remember which email service you last used in email certain contacts, again. So you may see it using other than your default email address at times. To change that, scroll up in any email to the "Send Using" section and select and change it there, and next time , it should get it right again.


Also, your BB will always reply to an email using the email address it received it on, and you can't change that Send Using. You can forward a message and change the Send Using, however.


Good luck.
