    Ok. Two questions here. And sorry if it's already been answered. Searched it, but didnt find it.

    1) I use Mail.app and i have a few addresses (4). When I send an email, it is always giving me the same outgoing address, but I'd like it to be another one by default. Anyway to change this?

    2) Again, with Mail.app. I've got my Hotmail account set up and everything, but sometimes, a message randomly popup saying that I have to write my password, even if I did it 5 minutes ago (and that in the account information, the password is there.)

    Thanks!

    1) Under composing settings in Mail preferences, there will be a "Send new messages from" option.

    2) This is a known issue with Hotmail. There is no fix as far as I'm aware of.

    See below for a screenshot of where you need to adjust your composing settings
