    Reset Default Email

    I'm trying to reset the default email client on my phone. You know how, when you click on a contact in your address book, & then if click the persons email to send them something, a screen pops up asking if you want to send it through the gmail client, or via pop 3? Well, since my pop 3 accounts are pushed to gmail, I clicked the 'make this my default" [whatever the last word was I forget]. Anyway, I meant to tap on gmail, but clicked pop3 by accident. Any ideas of how to reset this? I played with my phone for over an hour trying to rest it, & then looked online as well - and I got nothing. Hoping to avoid a master reset.

    Thanks!

    Go into launcher and find the APP called "email", and then click your menu button. Scroll down and find the "default email account". You can select from the email accounts you have setup in the "My Accounts" section.

    Tried that, but since I dont have a pop3 email setuop, insted of taking me to the email options, it takes me to the messaging folder - where I only see twitter & facebook, text mesaging & universal inbox. My accounts section likewise only has phone badckup assistant, facebook, google (but not the actual gmail client) & twitter.

    So if you open the "email" APP, it doesn't open anything and allow you to press your hard menu key?

    It takes me into messaging, where I see facebook, twitter, text messaging & universal inbox. Once here, when I click the hard menu button I get the option ' manage accounts' & messaging setting; neither of these give the option to reset default or reset default. Oh, & if I go to messaging settings, 'email' is grayed out.

    None - it just takes me into messaging. And it briefly says "cannot find any email accounts configured on this device".

    I would think that it would allow you to use Google mail as your default if you didn't have anything else setup.

    That's what I would think to; it's logical after all - but no. I can do a facory reset I guess, but it;s such a pain to download all my apps. I can never remember what exactly I did or didn't have (most of my apps are free).

    Download APPBrain in the market and setup an account online. It lets you sync your APPs there. After you do a reset, you can go to your web APPBrain account and see all of the APPs you had installed.
