Have you ever composed a piece of mail in Gmail, started to type the name of a recipient in the To field, and been annoyed that an email address for a recipient is not the first option in the list that shows up for that person? You might even always send email to that person using one particular address, but Gmail just never wants to make it the default or first option.
Have you composed mail to a (Gmail) contact group you created and found yourself having to replace unwanted/incorrect email addresses of recipients with the one you were intending?
Have you wanted to add contacts to your Gmail chat widget/box, clicked the ‘Add contact’, only to find Gmail providing non-Gmail addresses for suggested recipients in your top contacts?
Well, be inconvenienced no more! For each of your contacts that you would like to set the default email address for, edit their contact file, and set the address you want to use as the default as the FIRST address in the contact’s file. (I hope my choice of verbiage makes sense.) Unfortunately, until Google provides something like a ‘Use as default’ checkbox, this is only way I’ve found to make a contact’s email address their default.
