Send Email From Other Addresses in Gmail

It is human tendency to try out different things and then settle for the best one. It is true in the case of Email services too. With time most of us have used multiple email services like Rediff mail, outlook, Gmail etc. You might have stopped using a few accounts but still, you have multiple Email accounts for personal and professional use.

I use my Email id as well as Gmail id and it is quite tedious at times to send Emails by individually opening the two accounts in separate tabs just to send Emails. So, here’s how I added a different Email account I own to my Gmail Account to send Emails from it.

6. In the next step, you need to enter the password of the Email account you are adding. Also, I recommend you to append the domain of the Email account to the Username. For example, I added after the username in my case. When I didn’t add it in the username there were some issues in adding the account.

After entering the information, click on Add Account.

That is all you have to do. You can adjust the default Email address for sending the emails from the same location. But you will always get the option to change the account from which you wish to send the Email.

Similarly, you can add your other active Email accounts to Gmail.

Now head back to your Gmail inbox and try composing a new Email. In the compose window, you will see a From field which will show all the Email addresses you have added to your Gmail account. Select the one from which you want to send the Email. You know the rest of the drill pretty well.
