Your email address: it's an integral part of your online life. We are passionate about helping people to get the most out of email – from ensuring they have their own domain name to the best ways to use email on their devices. This is where we share out tips, tricks & recommendations.

Have you just set up a new Google Apps or Gmail account, but still want to be able to send and receive email from an old email account? Or do you have two different businesses that you want to be able to manage from one Gmail / Google Apps account?

This tutorial from Specialist John will show you how to set this up – including a handy tip that goes above and beyond the usual config to ensure that on Microsoft Outlook you don’t get those annoying “on behalf of” messages when you send from your second email address. i.e. if you want to be able to send from your old ISP email address, Outlook will display it as “From john@yourcloudspecialist.com on behalf of cleary@iinet.net.au”. This tip solves that problem!

This setup is perfect for when you’ve got a couple of different email addresses that you need to be able to send from but want to manage it in one inbox / sent box. You can use this tip to have more than one domain on your Google Apps account too – i.e. if you have a personal domain and business domain you can set up to be able to send from either without having to set up multiple accounts on your computer each time.

Set up Google Apps / Gmail to be able to send from another email address you own
