iPhone 5s: Changing the From Address When Sending a Picture

I use my iphone for work exchange and personal gmail. When I send a picture most of the time I want to send from home gmail but the phone is defaulting to send from exchange. I don't see an option when sending picture to change the From field - just the To: and the subject. What's the mojo??

On my iPhone 5S, when I select a picture and then choose to email it, once I have chosen email, it opens up a new email and I then see the To: field under that the Cc/Bcc, From field (where I can select and change the default account) and then the Subject Field.

Do you not see the same?

I'm on iOS 8.1

Perhaps the issue is that the camera is not aware of gmail? I have the built in client connecting to exchange and the gmail client I use for gmail.

Looks like a change from 8.1 to 8.1.1 as I see From and can change things.

Maybe worth upgrading to 8.1.2 to see if they fixed the issue.

I upgraded - but still no sign of the From field when sending a picture!

Darn it!  So are you going to Photos, selecting a picture then choosing the square box with the Arrow pointing upwards on it and then choosing Mail, then you get to the picture you posted earlier?

Photos, click a photo, click share icon on the left bottom, select Mail. To, cc, bcc and subject appear. But no From.

Seems like they removed it in 8.1.1 and didn't put it back in 8.1.2!

Only way to get this working is either downgrade to 8.1 or wait for them to re-introduce it.

Unless they moved the choice setting to the Settings options, which would be a bit weird.

Sorry - seems like there isn't a simple answer to this one (at the moment).

Sorry - Seems like they give with one hand and take with another some of the time :(

I remember when they used to permit apps that analyzed wifi signals and at some point they pulled that. Would have been rather disappointing to have developed one of those and have it suddenly become forbidden.
