Switching default email accounts using voice over.

macOS & Mac Apps

Hi all. i want to change the order the email accounts are displayed. So if I have a siobhan@home.com and a Siobhan-m@work.com email, I wantto have the siobhan-m be first. Is there a way to do this? I think you can do it using a mouse but not sure how with keyboard shorcuts etc. Thanks hope I made sense.

/One I do is drag the mail boxes in to their appropriate order from the mail boxes pain. I believe you have to put them in order by dragging the one you want above the one you don't want.

I had a similar problem till I realised how simple my required solution really is. My iCloud account was always chosen as the default sender but after modifying the appropriate setting in Mail | Preferences | Compose tab, the default sender account is what it should be. It is a pop-up menu known as ‘default sender’ as I recall but it is definitely on the Compose tab of the preferences in the Mail app. I never thought about dragging and dropping the mailboxes but I will try that because now I am curious.
