Most of us keep multiple email accounts to have more flexibility or manage personal and professional life in a better way. And I’m no exception to it. However, there is an email address, which I use more than the other.
The stock Mail app makes it pretty simple to change the default email account on iOS devices. So, I prefer to set the frequently used email address as the favored option. Aren’t aware of this helpful feature? Let me show you how it works!
How to Change Email Account in Mail App on iPhone and iPad
Step #1. Launch Settings app on your iOS device.
Step #2. Now, scroll down and tap on Mail.
Step #3. Scroll down again and tap on Default Account.
Step #4. Next, you need to select the account you wish to use. Then, quit the Settings.
Sticky note: You can add multiple email accounts to the Mail app. To do so, head over to Settings app → Passwords & Accounts → Add Account → Select the preferred email provider and sign in to your account.
Going forward, all of your emails will be sent from this account-unless you choose to go with the other option.
How to Switch Between Email Accounts on iPhone and iPad
It’s quite easy to switch between email accounts. So, even if you have set one as your default option, you will be able to select the other email address without any hassle.
Step #1. Simply open the Mail app on your iOS device and compose an email as usual.
Step #2. Now, you need to tap on cc/bcc, From.
Step #3. Next, tap on From. Then, you should see your other email account at the bottom. Select it. After that, send the email as usual.
That’s pretty much it!
So, that’s how you can make a preferred email address as your main option. Have any question? Shoot it up down below in the comments.
