When sending an email either from the active cover (+) or from the Gallery/Documents/whatever, the mail address chosen as sender is always the one that I don't want to use at all for outgoing mail. I always have to expand the fields, change the "From:" field and proceed.

Is there any way I can select one of my 3 mail accounts as the one that should be used as default?

Good request and yes, that HAS to be implemented. I'm anyways very dissapointed by the mail client which doesn't work well at all for me. Good that there are Android alternatives like K9-Mail, otherwise I probably still would have to use my N9, since emails are quiet important in my daily life.

The only way I found to select an other account as default is deleting the one you want and readd it. The last added email account comes always the default one.

This feature is there now! I suppose it came with the OS update yesterday.

Unfotunately it's a little bit hidden, though, so to reach it you need to:

  1. Start a new email
  2. Tap the three dots underneath the Subject field
  3. Tap on the Sender field
  4. Choose from the addresses you've set up through Accounts

Anyway, I'll close this request now. If one is not satisfied with the hidden Sender field, it needs a new request, I guess.

EDIT: Still choosing the default address is missing: the question has been reopened now.

Whoops, sorry, my bad: setting the default address is still missing, I'm afraid: I'll reopen the question...

I don't understand how these 2 questions are related? My question was how to choose which account is used when I'm not replying or creating a mail from inside the mail application; the equivalent to "Applications > Mail > Default Mailbox" on the N9.

This is not a duplicate question.

And yes, there should be a way to choose "default sender"-account.

Apologies, re-opening the question...

I think also the possibility to change the default sender account is necessary to add. I don't know the N9 but I would say in Settings -> Apps -> Email is a good place for it.

Even though the work-around from Sailor is a bit bad, I think it should be moved into it's own separate answer and voted for. It's the best one we have right now.

As commented by Sailor on another answer (moving it here so it's more visible):
