    I have two gmail accounts. How do I choose which account I want to use when I am sharing a photo/video. It defaults to the 2nd account I added but would prefer to choose which gmail account sends the pic or at least be able to change it.

    Any easy fixes?

    Similar problem - two gmail accounts, one is the default account (everything forwards into it - for work). Sometimes I want to reply using the other gmail account. How do I change the outbound email from: line?

    Using Motorola Droid.

    Haven't tried it but my guess is a more full featured email program like K9 should give you the option to pick your account.

    From my experience, the last account used in the Gmail program is the one that's used to send out messages from other apps, like sending photos/videos. You can test this yourself easily enough by opening up a different account and then trying to resend the files.

    Wish there was an option there to change the sending account, but not as of 2.1... :(
