Is there a way to choose which account I want to send an iMessage from. In my settings for IMessage I have start new convo from my number but say I want to send an iMessage and I don't want them to have that number n want it to be sent from my email iMessage account so 1. Do I change where I send messages from in those settings until I send it and then go back and change that setting ? 2. Once I do go back and change it and then go back to that message and respond whenever they write back is it going to change the message to show my info that I just changed it back to ??

Slightly confusing but I hope some one was able to follow what I am saying/ asking.

Thanks in advance.

Account? Not that I'm aware of. Different Apple IDs associated with an account? Yes.

That would be my assumption
2. Once I do go back and change it and then go back to that message and respond whenever they write back is it going to change the message to show my info that I just changed it back to ??
I would think that it would maintain the status quo.

well only your ☎ has a number. So if you send from your iPad or Mac(don't know if you have one). Wouldn't that achieve what you're trying to do?

Ok I think I successfully confused every one by what I meant. Going to try and explain a different way. I have iMessage set up to be able to send and receive with like 5 different accounts 2 is my 2 cellphone numbers 1 apple ID and 2 regular emails. (Why I have this many. Idk) anyway. So say I want to send a message to D from one of my regular emails. I don't want him to have either of my numbers or my apple ID and then say I want to send messages to my lady from my apple ID so she can reach me on either phone. Then say I wana hit sum one else up but I want them to see I'm talking to them from my cell number. How do I accomplish this without all them seeing the form of communication I don't want them to see like my number or apple ID I guess my question is after I send out a message and then I go in an change where I'm starting a new message from once I change that and go back to an old message where I started the convo from a different account will they now see what I changed my start new message method ? Even though I changed it after I started that message. Whew! Hope u all can get through that. And thanks for the input so far.

Changing Settings-Messages-Send & Receive-Start New Conversation From as JustMe'D would work for that. Send a text to mary@email.com with john@email.com, she will respond to john@email.com. Now you text Sam@email.com with you phone #, Sam responds to your phone number and has no idea that you also can text from john@email.com.
