    So, it took a long time for me to actually use and like the Mail app but now that I do it's been a great tool. I used to have to login on a website or have a pseudo-app that mimicked an app/webpage. Anyway, I have 3 accounts set in my Mail (2 Gmail, one actually by gmail and the other my domain with the gmail app installed on it; the other is my old dotmac/mobileme/etc account).

    Here is my problem: Sometimes, when I write emails, in the field where it says it's FROM isn't the one I want which is the gmail-hosted email. Sometimes, it says my domain email or my @me email or other @me aliases. I have caught it at times, but sometimes I don't and some recipients either don't receive it or trash due to unknown sender.

    Is there anyway to set the FROM field to always say a certain email address?

    I believe this is what you are looking for. This will work for new messages.

    Mail>Preferences>Composing>Addressing: Send new messages from: (set the address you want to use).

    Ah! Great, thanks! Did not see that when I was going through settings. The default was set to whatever was highlighted at the time, makes sense. But anyway, thanks again!
