I have three mail accounts. One through Apple for whatever they use it for. Two gmail accounts that come into the apple e-mail area, one personal and one business. I use the business account only for business. Lately every e-mail I send goes to the person I am sending to as if I sent it from the business account. Even though I am very careful to designate the personal address as the sender. Any suggestions on how to stop this?

Generally, if you just hit Reply, the sender for the new e-mail you create is the one the original e-mail was sent to. That may not be the sender you want.

You should be able to choose which account to send from, and which signature to use.

We can test this for you if you like.

Apple does not use your e-mail for anything secret. What they do is to give you a free Apple e-mail attached to your Apple ID. That might be an or (or even address. Any current Apple ID requires a valid e-mail that's not an Apple domain. That's so they can send e-mail about your account even if iCloud is down for some reason.

Thanks. My problem is when I send an original email myself. Not when I reply. Up until just a short time ago I was able to select but now I can't or even if I do it goes back to the business account. Apple care could not figure out what was going on so they are sending me to Lynnwood Mall tomorrow. I explained just what a trip that would be but that if they could arrange an appointment for tomorrow we were going over any how and I would take the Mac with me. They arranged the time I wanted.
