I have an IMac running 10.6.8. I am trying to change my general default mail preference from Mac Mail to gmail. I can't seem to find out how to do this. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Wow. Good question.

I just assumed that Mac Mail was ingrained.. could not change default and that Gmail had to be accessed via browser.

Will definitely keep an eye on this thread.

I will "assume" you are talking about the default account you want to 'send' new emails...

Not too many of us still running 10.6 - should be in similar location.

Mail - Preferences - Composing tab - 'Send new messages from' drop down box.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
