How to change the Send Mail From in Gmail
For those of you who wanted to know how you can change the “from” email in your Gmail email account, I am here to try my very best to explain it for you.
There’s some posts that are easy for me to write and then there’s ones like this one, where I spend more time backspacing then actually typing! So bare with me here if things seem out of sorts….lol.
It might be better just to watch the step by step video tutorial on this one, so I’ll leave the video right here at the top. (If at anytime during the video you need or want to, just click pause so you can follow along.)
And now for the written step by step instructions….Log in to your account, then click the “Settings” icon on the top right, then from the drop down menu click on Settings. It will look like this:
Once you click on Settings you’ll want to click on ” Accounts and Import ” then click on Add another email address you own.
Put in your name and the new email address; click NEXT STEP.
It will then ask if you want to Send mail through your SMTP server?
To keep things easy, don’t change a thing! Just click NEXT STEP.
You should see the page that tells you to verify your email address. Simply click on the SEND VERIFICATION button to do this.
You will need to login to that email account so you can copy and paste the confirmation code that Gmail sends to you or click on the link in the email.
And, well, that’s it for the Step by step instructions on how to change send mail from or “send mail as” in Gmail! Please be sure to share this with others, you’d be surprised just how many people don’t know how to do things like this. It feels good to know you are helping out others!
Take care and have a wonderful day
