Send Company Email From Gmail

Customized From Address

When my access to O’Reilly’s email server went out today, I still managed to send a message to tech support from my O’Reilly email address. Since I’d already added my other address to Gmail, here’s all I needed to do:

  1. Log in to your Gmail account at
  2. Click Compose.
  3. Use the drop-down menu in the From field to select the address you’d like to use to send the message.
  4. Compose and send!

Sure, it’s more of a tip than a hack, since it’s built into Gmail, but it sure saved me in a pinch today, so I thought it qualified for a Hackszine mention.
