Apple iMac email

This is so annoying, when I wont to write an email it first of all shows the iCloud address on the from line and I have to alter it for my email address by clicking on the up/down arrows next to it. I often forget to alter this and its rather confusing for the recipient. How do I get my personal email to appear in this box when I open a new email please, anyone.?

Dunno but I am going to guess you need to go into Preferences - accounts or email accounts from the top menu and its maybe in there.

Ray.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of Ģ750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

It doesnīt matter what I do with these 2 I still have from iCloud.

If I untick the iCloud I get nothing on the from line.

It's probably just Apple ensuring anyone you contact knows you are using an Apple device, they do like to control you
