How do I use my gmob address to send on Gmail?

Gmail lets you send messages with an alternate ID. This feature helps you manage multiple accounts from the Gmail interface. You simply choose the “From” address you want the recipient to see. This only works if you already own the email account linked to the alternate address. (You can’t send emails that look like they come from just anybody.)

I’m a Gmail or Google Apps user sending from an external address.

  • Sign in to Gmail.
  • Click the gear icon in the upper-right and select “Gmail settings” and select the “Accounts” and “Import” tab.
  • Under “Send mail as”, click “Add another email address”.
  • In the ‘Email address’ field, enter your name and your gmob email address.

Choose one of two options:

  • Use Gmail’s servers to send your mail (this is easier to set up)
  • Use your other email provider’s SMTP servers (we recommend this option for professional mail accounts or domains). Note for Google Apps users: Depending on your domain type, this feature may be disabled by default. Talk to your administrator if you have any questions.

If you choose to use Gmail’s servers:

  1. Click Next Step >> and then click Send Verification. Gmail will send a verification message to your other email address to confirm that you own it.
  2. Open your other account and either click the link in the message Gmail sent or enter the confirmation code in the Accounts section of your Gmail settings.
  3. If Gmail sends a verification email and you didn’t receive the it, the message was probably caught by a spam or bulk mail filter in your recovery email system. Try checking your Spam or Bulk Mail folders for a message from account-verification-noreply@google.com to see if the email ended up in there.

Your Gmail address will still be included in your email header’s sender field, to help prevent your mail from being marked as spam. Most email clients don’t display the sender field, though some versions of Microsoft Outlook may display “From yourusername@gmail.com on behalf of customaddress@mydomain.com.” For this reason, if you don’t want ‘on behalf of’ to appear in any of your messages, we recommend using the SMTP servers of your other email provider. Please consult Gmail’s instructions to accomplish this.

If you choose to send mail through another domain’s SMTP servers:

  • Enter the SMTP server (e.g. smtp.domain.com), your username on that domain, and your password for that account. You may also need to adjust your port setting or SSL setting (talk to your other ISP if you need this information).
  • Click Add account >>
  • Open your other account and either click the link in the message Gmail sent or enter the confirmation code in the Accounts section of your Gmail settings.

Your other email provider has to provide authenticated SMTP support for you to use this option. We’ll use TLS by default, or SSL if you enable it. Many email services that provide POP or IMAP support also offer authenticated SMTP support, and you can likely find your SMTP server configuration instructions alongside information about POP or IMAP. Also, this new version of custom ‘From:’ doesn’t work with Yahoo! Mail Plus accounts just yet, but we’ve reached out to Yahoo! to try to get it working.

I’m a Google Apps for Business user sending from a domain alias or nickname.

  • Sign in to your Google Apps email.
  • Click the gear icon in the upper-right and select Gmail settings along the top of any page, and select the Accountstab.
  • Under Send mail as, click Add another email address.
  • In the Email address field, enter your name and your gmob email address.
  • Click Next Step >> and then click Send Verification. Gmail will send a verification message to your other email address to confirm that you own it.
  • (Locate the message from Gmail. Open it and and either click the link contained in the message or enter the confirmation code in the Accounts section of your Google Apps email settings.

If you don’t receive the confirmation email, contact your Google Apps administrator to confirm the domain alias or nickname has been configured.

Messages you send will appear to be from the domain alias or nickname. The return-path of the message will indicate your primary mail addresses, but only recipients who look at the original message header will notice.

Once you’re set up: sending mail

To use your gmob alias, just pick it from the drop-down menu in the ‘From:’ field when you compose message. If you’re replying or forwarding a message, click “Change” next to the “From:” field. You ca also choose to automatically use the address to which a message was sent.

To edit the name, configuration or reply-to address for an existing entry, click edit next to the address on your Accounts tab. To delete an address, just click delete.
Note for IMAP/POP users: If you access Gmail through a POP or IMAP email client (e.g. Outlook) and would like to send messages with a custom “from” address, you have two options. We recommend that you configure your email client with two outgoing SMTP servers, one for Gmail and one for your other address. Or, you can use Gmail’s outbound servers with a different “from” address. If you’ve already configured the alternate address, your message will be sent from:otheraddress@domain.com, sender:username@gmail.com, regardless of which custom from configuration you chose.
