Windows Mail 8 - Changing Your Default Account

windows mail 8

Mail in Windows 8 does not have an option to select a default account. Instead, Mail will automatically send messages from the account which you are currently viewing.

You can, however, select which e-mail account you wish to send from in the new message window by doing the following:

1. Click on More (located beneath the Cc line). This will display the sending address at the top of the window.

2. Click on the address currently being displayed. A drop-down list will appear.

3. Select the address from which the message should be sent.
