    How to send e-mail from GMail using different SMTP without revealing GMail e-mail?



    when i setup Gmail to download e-mails also from my non-gmail mailboxes like [email protected] and want to use GMail to send out an e-mail on behalf of [email protected], then the recipient can see [email protected] in the e-mail source code (e-mail headers) and this is often unwanted i guess.


    Here is what worked to remove my gmail address from headers: Gmail / Settings(Options) / Accounts & Import / Send mail/e-mail as: / Edit my third party mailbox / do NOT set it as an alias

    Then from that time, e-mail headers not show my gmail address, "only" shows that the real sender was not [email protected], but gmail in general:

    Received: from mail-qt0-f171.google.com ([]:35731) by hotmail.smtpserver.here with esmtpsa (TLSv1.2:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:128) (Exim 4.89) (envelope-from <[email protected]>) id 1daViz-0006Kg-Bt for [email protected]; Fri, 11 Aug 2016 02:03:14 +0000
    Received: by mail-qt0-f171.google.com with SMTP id p3so36757812qtg.2 for <[email protected]>
    So it allowed me to send e-mail from Gmail on behalf of other non Gmail hosted mailboxes without recipients be able to see my Gmail address. Nice

    PS: This does not seem to work when you are sending from [email protected] on behalf of [email protected], the [email protected] is still shown in headers :-/ workaround is to switch to me2 account to send out e-mail

    Is this useful / helpfull? Yes | No
    Set up Gmail to Send/Receive Email for Your Domain You will need to allow pop-ups in your browser settings, if you do not see the pop-up window appear. Enter the email address you created for your domain and click Next. Enter the POP3 settings for your domain's email address.
