    I've got my iCloud email, Hotmail email & Outlook email all setup in Email. I've got my Hotmail email setup as the default Email account, but every time I open email it opens my iCloud email.

    Does anyone know how to fix this without resorting to turning off iCloud email in Settings?

    All you selecting "All Inboxes?" or one seperately?

    I know what you mean. I also have another email account setup as the default. If I close the mail app and relaunch it, it automatically takes me to the inbox of my icloud account. I think it's by design. Why? I don't know. The default email setup basically works so that it is the default email when you quick compose an email.

    I have 4 gmail, 1 Comcast, and 1 iCloud. The first gmail I set up is the default. But I have switched the default from one to another, then back.

    When you open to iCloud, do you close the mail app there, or do you switch to your default before closing the app? Mine opens to whichever I last had it on.

    In the Mail app on the Inboxes/Accounts listing screen, hit Edit in the Top right, and then arrange the Accounts at the bottom. Whichever one is at the top is the one that will open first (if the Mail app is quit). This is what I do and it works.

    Any thoughts on how to change this on iOS 9? I tried the fix mentioned and my Juno account is listed first in the mail app yet it still starts with the iCloud account.

    Odd. Mine opens on whichever account it last closed on.

    Do you mean when you open the mail app, it opens on iCloud, not Juno? Is Juno your default?
