Thanks for sending this out. I just tried it and even shutdown Mail and opened it again, but it did not work. Frustrating a bit.
Any other ideas?
Hey Justin, you're right. We just updated this guide with the new method to re-arrange accounts - hope it helps you!
How do you change the sort order of the from email when are composing an email? The sort order is back to the way they updated it to work in Mavericks but the from doesn't follow suite like it use to.
Yeah---none of these tricks work for me. The order of the inBoxes change but the order in the drop down list remains the same.
P.S. I think the preference that's really needed is "Reply using account to which message was addressed." Tying things to the Inbox makes little sense for me given that all my email is filtered into various folders as soon as it arrives---it's never kept in the account specific Inbox.
none of these worked for me either. In Mail Preferences under the account tab you can no longer reorder them, and reordering the mailboxes under the inbox in the sidepane doesn't change anything. The only way to do this is to set it to always use the default account in preferences under the composing tab, and then manually change it whenever you need to reply from a different account. This makes the send from account of selected mailbox useless.
Wish that worked, but it doesn't. Have not yet found anything in El Capitan which changes the order. This is a pity, because if you want to use "Send new messages from Account of selected mailbox," it somehow defaults to the first mailbox, which something is strong-arming into the "wrong" order.
I called Apple about this, and the response, though not as flippant as my interpretation may sound, is "works for me."
My take from this is that it must be common for MacOS to become corrupt, and for this to stop working. The way to correct it seems obvious and inconvenient. Either create a new user to use, if that works for you, and migrate to it, create a new install and do the same, or wipe out your settings and redo them, if that works for you. These are all far too much of a pain for me to proceed.
