Multiple mails, creating default sender

Jun 9, 2021

I have 3 mails connected to my mac mail program. One that is my "personal", one for business inquiries, and one for editorial inquieries. I send almost all my mails from my "personal" account, however, sometimes i end up sending them from the others, which then confuses people i send to as they don´t know which one is correct. This is no big problem as i still get all the mails, just slightly annoying.

So, is there any way to set it up so all mails by default are sent by my "personal" one, and/or even better, have a pop-up when trying to send from the other mails asking me if i really want to send from this adress.
Was thinking there has to be a function by default for it to make a pop-up when you press send mail that says "confirm sending". If so, maybe there is a way to go into the files off the program/computer and change this text to whatever i want. If there is, does anyone know how i can find that information?

Thanks in advance
