I have 3 gmail accounts coming into my gmail app. I also frequently use the "Share" feature of many apps (Browser, Gallery, BeyondPod...) to share links via gmail however when it opens up the email compose screen sometimes I am given a dropdown to choose which account to send it from and other times it defaults to the account of the last inbox I checked and doesn't give me an option to change it.

This does not seem to have any rhyme or reason to it. Does anyone know how I can make sure to always have the option to choose which account I'm sending from?

  • Hello? Anyone else have this problem?

  • Is it an issue with a particular app? For the apps that give you a dropdown menu, does it at least consistently provide the dropdown?

  • Well, it is particularly with the Gmail App. When ever I choose to share something via gmail from my browswer or gallery or music player... it pops up Gmail, however sometimes it defaults to the last gmail account I used as the "From Address" sometimes it gives me a choice. No, it doesn't consistently provide a dropdown.

I'm sure this is fixed in the latest Gmail App which you should be able to download from the Market.

(This used to bug the hell out of me - sometimes the drop down would work, other times not, completely at random. Haven't had the issue since the last Gmail App update)

  • Thanks! It seems to work now. I'll have to give it a couple days to make sure it's fixed for good.

  • @Matt I'm genuinely pleased for you! I use this feature a lot and it really drove me crazy, especially as it was so random :) Commented Nov 19, 2010 at 13:52
