    This is for a Samsung Galaxy note 2. I have set up the default account as the exchange account. When I go in to compose an email through the "Email" button the default is correct. If I go to my "Contacts" button and look at a contact and then click on the email for them the default is gmail and NOT the exchange account. I cannot even change to other email accounts(1 yahoo, 1 aol, 2 exchange). Can anyone help me to change the default to the exchange when looking at the contact first rather than going into email in order to send for default?

    not for me...for Da Boss
    Thank you!!

    When you setup exchange on the phone did you choose contacts to sync? Contacts should be one in the same, not separate like email.

    Yes I setup contacts to sync and set it up as default. This is why I am confused as to why it is using the gmail account

    Thank you!!
    Open Contacts -> Menue -> Settings -> Accounts: change settings as required & Select contacts to display;
    I dont know if this will work as I export my Comcast mail and only use Gmail.

    Camstuf,
    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately this did not work. Still when I clixk on the email in the contact I can only use gmail. Any other suggestions?

    Ah I think I get it now. Try this:

    go to settings > application manager > gmail > Clear defaults

    Sounds like you set gmail as the default e-mail application to use when sending an e-mail from contacts. Defaults are (sometimes) set on an application basis.

    Tavenger,
    Thank you. That worked. He must have set it up to use always.
