Gmail “Send As” Different E-mail Address

It has been brought to our attention that some of our clients are having difficulty using their employer’s e-mail systems. Some have reported that they experience major delays when they send e-mails from their work e-mail. One possible solution to bypass this issue is to use one’s personal GMail Account to “send as” any professional e-mail address that allows this. Below are the steps to setup this solution under your GMail Account:

1 – Select Settings (upper-right corner)
2 – Click the “Accounts and Import” tab
3 – Under Send mail as, click “Add another email address you own”
4 – In the ‘Email address’ field, enter your name and alternate email address you own.
5 – Enter the SMTP server (e.g., your username on that domain, and your password for that account.
6 – Click Add account


To use one of your alternate sender addresses, click the From link when you compose a new message. If you’re replying to or forwarding a message, click the field where your recipients are listed, then click From. After clicking From, you’ll see a drop-down menu next to your address, where you can select the email address you’d like to send from.

If you ever need to edit the name, configuration or reply-to address, go back to your settings. Click edit next to the address on your Accounts tab. To delete an address, just click delete.

We hope this has been very helpful and look forward to your feedback!
