Send emails from a different address or alias.

How to Send Emails from Non-Gmail Addresses Using Gmail

Are you tired of having to switch between multiple email accounts to send messages? Do you wish you could send emails from your non-Gmail addresses using your Gmail account? Well, you’re in luck! In this article, we’ll show you how to add and send emails from non-Gmail addresses using Gmail.

Step 1: Access Your Gmail Interface

To get started, you’ll need to access your Gmail interface at mail.google.com. Once you’re there, click on the settings gear icon on the top right and then click on “CL settings.”

Step 2: Add Another Email Address

Once you’re on the settings page, go to the “Accounts” tab and then the “Send mail as” section. Click on “Add another email address” and enter the name and email address you want to add. This new email will be treated as an alias, so be sure to check the implications of this action by clicking on the “Learn more” hyperlink. Then, click “Next Step.”

Step 3: Enable SMTP Servers

Make sure that your admin has enabled the right functionality so you can add the SMTP servers. Once enabled, you will be able to fully add the details of the corresponding email servers you want to connect to use send mail. For Google Workspace accounts, the SMTP server will be smtp.gmail.com and the port number will be 587. This will vary for other email services. Enter the username, which is the full email address you previously added, and to confirm the address, sign in to the account you added and open the confirmation message you got from Gmail.

Step 4: Compose and Send Emails

Congratulations! You have successfully added the additional account to send emails from it. Once the account is verified, you can compose a new email and in the “From” section, select the address you want to send emails from.

Step 5: Sending Emails from a Google Group Address

If you want to send emails from a Google Group address, you will need to delegate a group and change posting permissions. First, go to the Google Groups interface at groups.google.com. Click on “My Groups” on the left and then go to the gear icon next to the group you want to use. If you do not have the right permissions, please contact the group owner to proceed.

On the left panel under “Group settings,” select “General” and scroll down to find the setting “Who can post.” Then, change it to “Anyone on the web” and save changes. Note that making this change will allow everyone on the web to post on the group, even though they do not belong to the group.

Afterwards, you must delegate the group to another user so the verification email is received and approved. Go to the “People” section and then “Members” on the left panel. Under “Role,” change the role of a member to “Owner.”
