Can I pick the email program when emailing from lds tools?

Postby nathanearlpilling » Tue Aug 29, 2017 7:18 am

I have two email accounts on my iPhone, inbox by google and the "mail" app.

When I email a list of people from the lds tools app, it uses the "mail" app, which is my work email account. I want church emails to come from my personal email account.

Is this possible?

This isn't currently possible, because iOS doesn't allow you to change the default email app, or choose between apps when following a mailto: link. It's an iOS limitation. The only workaround is to connect your personal email account to both Gmail and Apple Mail (in addition to your work account), which will allow you to send and receive messages on either one.
