I have selected my .me email account as the default for outgoing email messages. But my iPhone does not always use that account. When I hit the "compose" icon a new blank email message opens up and my .me account always appears in the "From:" space. HOWEVER, when I then enter the recipient's email address my iPhone sometimes, but not always, changes the "From" account to my Gmail account.

There are certain recipients for whom it always uses the correct default outgoing address (my .me account), and there are other recipients for whoom it always changes the outgoing account, but I haven't been able to identify a common thread that would tell me why it is making the change for those recipients.

I have an iPad, which is set to use the same default outgoing email account, and have not had this problem on that device. Nor on my iMac.

    Are you choosing a Gmail contact when it switches to Gmail?

    It switches to Gmail for some Gmail recipients, but not others. And it switches to Gmail for some other recipients who use non-Gmail accounts, but not for others with non-Gmail accounts. Haven't been able to figure out a pattern. It does seem to treat each recipient the same each time I send to them (in other words it doesn't use the default email for a certain recipient one time and then the Gmail for that recipient another time).
