How to Set Up a Primary E-Mail Account on Your Samsung Galaxy Tablet

By Dan Gookin

To help keep you electronically connected, the Samsung Galaxy Note and Samsung Galaxy tablet feature the capability to collect and send your electronic missives. You can read and compose missives just about anywhere you go, peruse attachments, forward messages, and do the entire e-mail e-nchilada all in one spot.

You can have oodles of fun and waste oceans of time confirming and customizing the e-mail experience on your Galaxy tablet. The most interesting things you can do are to modify or create an e-mail signature, specify how mail you retrieve is deleted from the server, and assign a default e-mail account for the Email app.

When you have more than one e-mail account, the main account — the default — is the one used by the Email app to send messages. To change that primary mail account, follow these steps:

  1. Start the Email app.

  2. On the Account menu, choose Combined View.

  3. Touch the Menu button and choose Settings.

  4. On the left side of the screen, select the e-mail account you want to mark as your favorite.

  5. On the right side of the screen, select the Default Account item.

The messages you compose and send using the Email app are sent from the account you specified in Step 4.
