Default how to set default email account

Please Login to Remove!

I want to use only one of my several email accounts as the default account to send email from. For some reason, each time I compose an email the account that it is sending from changes. Is there a way to set it up so I can designate the default automatically and have the option to change it ?

[tried to search this but the search engine in the forum didn't work]

thank you

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry 8700g: BlackBerry8320/4.2.2 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/100)

If you go to Options > Advanced Options > Default Services (or Message Services) you can set it there. Now the BlackBerry will automatically use the e-mail account you last used for a particular contact, as well as that same account where an e-mail was recived. So if you have Gmail as the default and received an e-mail via a Yahoo account, if you reply to the e-mail it will use the Yahoo account. You will need to manually change it.
