Default Send mail showing home email, not work email

Please Login to Remove!

I have a BB8830 from work, but when I create a new message, it shows my home email as the originator. I'm new to BES, so I'm sure I did something wrong in setting this up, but I need new emails to only come from my work email, and never from my home email ID. How do I fix this? I have my home email forwarded to my BB so I can view all messages during the day, but any new emails I create on the BB must give my work email ID as the originator.

I appreciate the help.

I had a similar problem with the default email for my camera & calendar. When actually composing the email, where it says "Send using:" it says "default", you can click the track wheel and change it to whatever email you want to use.
Also Try the following:
menu>options>advanced options>default services> press the track ball & choose the default email you want>menu>save.
I posted this problem recently and this is what another member suggested.

Just be aware that if you did send email to a particular recipient using a particular email account the BB will "remember" this as the default for the next time you email that particular recipient. It should change the default for that recipient as soon as you switch the email account in the Send Using field.
