Default sending account not working properly

Unders Settings > Accounts > Default Sending Account

I have the account selected I want to send to but today it stopped using that account when I click "Compose" or even when replying to messages.

Please Fix!

        compose is using primary account and not the default account set in settings.

        Our email is still not sending out messages. We're getting a failure notice in the trash.

        I can received my emails with my adress @yahoo.com and @yahoo. But it's impossible to send an email using the adress @yahoo.com. It only works with my adress @yahoo.fr... What can i do?

        Problem still exists -- my "Default sending account" setting is ignored in favor of the Yahoo email address; I even unmerged my ATT account from Yahoo and the problem is still there !!

        Why is this problem being ignored? Will be switching to cable company if this isn't fixed. I do not want to keep having to remember to select my default email address, which defeats the purpose of it being the default!!! Come on Yahoo/AT&T. Get it together!

        This problem has been driving me NUTS for awhile now!!! Especially when I'm quickly sending an email and "forget" to "choose" my default sender address. I never used the yahoo address & don't want people to start using/responding to me with it....very frustrating!!!

        I have the same problem. My default adress for composing message is not set correctly despite the choice i made in settings... That's quite annoying...

        Contact addresses DO NOT show when attempting to forward emails, or Composing emails!
