    How to Change Default Email Address?

    Advertisement



    does anyone know how i change my default email address on my BB? the first one i set up is automatically my default, but i would like to change it.

    its not a huge deal, b/c i can just pull down and change the "from" part of every email i send, but it gets annoying.

    i couldn't find it as an option in the messages on the phone itself or an option on MyTMobile in the Email Addresses section.

    ANYONE??

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I noticed when you send email to a particular contact, your email address will default to the last account used to send previous emails to that contact. (Did that make sense to anyone?)

    This is how I set my "from address", go to options, go to advanced, go to messages, then change the address shown. Let us know if that helps.

    Setting the mailbox I want as default under advanced options>message services doesn't work for me. Any idea why? It worked on my last pearl (I just got a replacement). Changing the sent from address on a per message is an extra step I'd like not to take. Thanks!

    Under setup internet email.. I was able to setup an addition account (yahoo), but when I go to add hotmail, it states.. An error occurred during email account validation. Please check your information and try again. If the error persists please contact your email account provider.

    Any one figure out how to fix this?? (I have TMO)
