When I send a picture directly from gallery, via email, Jolla selects an account that I use only to sync calendar, as sender (my girlfriends account). How can I change this, I need to use my own email as sender. I have 3 accounts, my outlook account, my google account and my girlfriends outlook account. I use the outlook accounts only to sync calendar, and google account to send email.

this is a bug.. allready reported. Jolla uses by default the last added account even if you have set it to only sync f.i. the calendar

While creating email tap the three dots, it opens the sender (among others). From sender you can then change your sending account to another.

Is this setting remembered?

@saya: no it is not, unfortunately. The fact that a mail account that was not selected for mail synchronisation is chosen by default is IMHO a bug. A fix would be to be able to choose a default mail account, and that Sailfish OS remembers that everywhere.

Thanks for the tip, I can live with that while waiting for the fix
