How to set android phone, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, to always default to a particular sender email address, when you have more than one email address synced with phone

Hi,

I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and use the Gmail app on this phone for emails.

There is more than one Gmail address synced with this phone.

How do I set this phone to always default to a particular sender email address.

Thanks,
Robbie

Go to to your mail client > click the 3 lines (lines are horizontal) > click the settings cog > click the 3 dots > click set default account
That's it.

Hi,

Thank you all for your suggestions.

I use the Gmail app on my phone and it seems to have a slightly different layout.

Is the only way of setting default sender address through Email app or is there a way of doing this through the Gmail app?

Thanks,
Robbie
