If you have set up multiple email accounts on your iPad (or iPhone or iPod Touch) you may have a need to trade-off between these accounts. Luckily, the Mail App lets you change which email account you use for your replies and forwards. Take an incoming email from your Gmail account and reply to it with your Yahoo account, etc. This a simple, useful trick.

Here's how to swap email accounts on your replies
Tap once on the now–separated From line – it will pop up a list of your email accounts. I will tap on my Yahoo account to choose it as the source of this reply.
My reply will now be sent from my Yahoo account, even though the incoming email was in my Gmail account. If you keep copies of sent mail, you can find your reply in your Yahoo Email Sent folder.
