I definitely want to make sure you can send email correctly every time! Let's work on this together. Just to make sure, you're using the pre-installed Email app with two different email accounts added to the same app? Are you looking to set a default account or switch between which account you're replying from?

Got it, hhj. Currently when you choose to send or reply to an email, does it offer a pop up window asking if you wish to send through your GMail, or your other Email inbox?

sometimes, but say, i want to send a picture via email, the wrong email address that i want it sent from always appears, i was just wondering if there was a way to set a default or primary email for those types of things?

As a fellow Turbo owner, I have to say that's a great question! I actually have two email accounts as well (Hotmail Gmail), and my Hotmail is the primary. Curious: Are either of your email accounts Gmail? Have you tried discontinuing either of them, and then readding?

You can try that. However there should be an option within the Email application to set the default account.

Let me check on my current phone.....

Okay I couldn't find any way to set the default account for sending email in the Email application. However I did notice that it does default to the right account when I share a picture via my Email application. I do recall adding my main account first and then my second. Even if they were flipped, you can change the account in the compose screen by selecting the other account in the drop down menu hidden under the email account name.
