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:
- Log in to your Gmail account at mail.google.com.
- Click Compose.
- Use the drop-down menu in the From field to select the address you’d like to use to send the message.
- 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.
