How to change which email account you send from on your iPhone and iPad

If you've got multiple email accounts set up on your iPhone or iPad, the Mail app will automatically reply from whatever account an email was sent to. But what about when you're composing a new email? If you've got one account you use more than others, you can set that as your default account for composing emails. If you ever want to send from another account, you can still do that too.

Follow along and we'll show you how.
