    Emailing from Notes uses wrong email address

    Hi. When i email notes to myself, i type in my name and it comes up in a blue bubble and shows my hotmail address. I hit send and my note is then emailed to my hotmail AND my gmail address. Its annoying as it clogs up my gmail unnecessarily. Can i turn it off somewhere?

    Check Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars; under the Mail header. If you have GMail set up as your Default Account, and Always Bcc Myself turned on it might do this.

    I'm going to play around a bit and see if I can duplicate your problem; because I'm curious.


    Edit: yep, that's what happens. Of course if you've set it this way you should get a copy of your outgoing email in GMail every time you send , not just for notes; so this may not be the problem at all.

    If you go to the Notes icon in Settings, you'll see that gmail is a default email setting for Notes. Doesn't seem to be changeable, so even f you select another email when sending a note, it will also go to gmail. Apple should give us a fix for this.

    That setting has to do with what account your Notes will sync with by default. It would (should) not cause anything to show up in your inbox. Instead the notes show up in a special "Notes" folder in the account. What can be set to default depends on what accounts you have that are able to sync with Notes, and whether you have enabled Note syncing in that account.

    If it is defaulting to GMail, that is probably because you only have GMail set to sync Notes under Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Accounts.

    When you have multiple accounts set up to sync with Notes you will see an Accounts button above your list of notes in the app. If you have no accounts, or only one account and no local notes, the button won't be there.

    Edit: Added a picture, though I'm not sure if it really makes anything clearer.

    I have Always BBC myself is turned off and tried the other suggestion in Settings with no luck.

    When I go to Notes, I only have the Font options showing. There is no panel or option marked Default Account so i cant go any further with your picture and instructions. I wonder whats going on there.

    Sorry just reread this thread carefully. I see you said that if i only have one account, then nothing will show under Setting, Notes, other than Font options so that will be why i cant see the options you explain in the picture. Btw when i go to Settings,Mail, Accounts, then my gmail is the email showing.

    Its not a biggie if i cant get is sorted but it is a bit annoying as i plan to print a few notes by emailing them to my hotmail.

    Ah, that's why I was asking about your version of iOS.
