Go to: MAIL>>> Preferences>>> Comopsing>>>"Send New Mail from"... click the drop down menu, and choose the specific account you'd like, or (as I have done below) choose "Account of last viewed mailbox"

You need MAIL -> Preferences -> Accounts

Add your Gmail account there.

Just to add some spice, anyone check out Mailplane yet? It looks like the killer Gmail application.

I am quite happy with Apple Mail, but the fact that POP mail cannot modify messages on the server bugs me. If I ever access my Gmail, I get all my mails, including junked ones, and all of them are marked unread.
