Change the default account on your iPad

Tech TricksOne of the good things about the new generation of mobile operating systems is that you can handle multiple email accounts at once.


But if you have an iPad, unfortunately it will only choose one of these as your default account. And sometimes it may not be the one that you want. The default account sends all messages that are composed outside of the inbox.


To switch the default account, head to the Settings App, and then on the left-hand side of the screen choose the “mail, contacts and calendars” app. Then, scroll down and under the “Always BCC Myself” and “Signature” apps, you’ll see the option for “Default account”.


There, you’ll be able to choose a default account. You’re able to switch between default accounts as often as you’d like.
