    How does one set the default account for Mail?

    That is, if I want Mail to always use garyreich@mac.com as my send address with a NEW e-mail, how do I do this?

    Thanks as always.

    Open up preferences, and go to the composing tab.

    About halfway down there's a dropdown menu that lets you choose between "Account of last viewed mailbox" and your accounts individually.

    Is that the new Mail in Tiger? I cannot find it in my Mail 1.3 on 10.3.9...

    I've been waiting for that as it's very annoying that new messages automatically uses the account of whatever last marked mail message was send to/from, and it's "never" the main one that should be used most of the time... ;)

    Yes, sorry. I think it's a Tiger only feature. (I saw iGary was running it on all his systems)

    In Mail 1.3, it goes by your last viewed mailbox.

    Thanks, no problem really... My Tiger Family Pack is on its way (I actually should have gotten it today, but the b*stards in TNT managed to send it to the wrong town here in Norway :rolleyes:, so I should be getting it tomorrow...) I'll manage for another day or two... ;)
