Whenever I start a new email in Mail, my .mac account is the default account the application uses to send the email.  However, I do not use this account, I only have it set up for the few emails that might come through.  My main account is my Google account.  How can I set up mail so that when I click the "new email" icon, my Google email address is the default one??

Mail -> Preferences -> Composing Set the "Send new messages from" to your Google account. Regards.

In the Composing pane of Mail's preferences window, look for the pop-up menu labeled "Send new messages from." Select the desired account there. Note, though, that this won't change the behavior when replying to a message... in that case, the reply will be sent from the account that received the message, unless you specify differently at that time.
