    I have 5 active email accounts and typically I try to the proper address for the appropriate website. Sometimes the site accounts are older and I can search my inbox for the original email to see my log-in credentials.

    I know pre-iOS7 you could tap on your name in the email header and it would take you to your contact info and highlight the account the email was attached to. It seems it no longer does this. Instead of tapping through all the accounts one by one, is there something that does work?

    If I touch the "more..." next to my name in the email header, then tap my name, it'll show me which email address of mine the email was sent to.

    Good tip.
    I typically hit reply and look at the address that shows in the from field that appears.

    That's what I used to do. It would highlight the appropriate email address. It no longer does that.

    Odd. It's not working for me. Hasn't since 7.0. It worked no problem before that.

    So what happens when you tap on "More..." and then on your name?

    It pulls me into my contact card but that's all. Nothing is highlighted. Checked a few guys at work and they behave properly.

    None of them appear in blue vs black color? Are you sure the address that the email came to is listed in the contact?

    No. It's all black.

    Yes. I've checked all of the emails I currently use just to be sure.

    Could it be from an email address that is getting forwarded to another one? That may confuse things as to which email address in your contact card it's supposed to highlight.

    I don't think so. I am going to try and delete the email addresses from the contact card and add them back.

    That worked. I think i had two emails for my iMessage and that may have been conflicting.
