Setting a Default Email Account

I am running K-9 Mail Beta Version 5.740. I have 4 Email accounts that I monitor. One of these accounts is my primary Email account. Under Settings I have dragged this Primary account to the top of the Email account list. However, every time I start K-9 Mail, and tap the menu at the upper left, it always brings up one of the accounts that I rarely need access, instead of my primary account that is at top of the list. How can I change the default account that K-9 Mail shows when the menu is opened? There is a similar issue when I go to share a photo (from my photo App) and select K-9 Mail App to share the photo. K-9 Mail lists the sender as this same rarely used Email account, not my primary account that is at the top of the list in my K-9 Mail settings. How can I change the default account the K-9 Mail uses to share document / photo etc. using K-9 mail.

Menu - Settings - tap on the email account you want to change

Then under General Settings tick the box of the 2nd option, “Default account”.

There’s no good reason why we don’t use the first account as default account. I created an issue to change the behavior to match @dggerber’s expectations.
