Using my iPad. My server is mediacom
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
No.
Mac Support Specialist: Josh, Mac Support replied 27 days ago

It sounds like you have your default email address set up wrong.

Go into Settings then Mail

Scroll down to the bottom and where it says "Default Account", tap on it and make sure it is your email address

Now go back and try to send mail

Yes, choose the account that you wish to use. I am assuming it is the MCHSI account

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill

Bill M.Schenectady, New York
