If you have two or more email accounts and it becomes a hassle to sign-in to each one of them frequently. Then we have a solution for you. Just use your Gmail account. You can add your other email accounts in to your Gmail account. Then when you compose an email, you will get a drop down menu in the from section and you can choose which email you want to send the mail from.

Lets look at the steps on how to send emails from a different address using Gmail:

  • Log in to your Gmail account.
  • Go to setting at the top right corner of the Gmail window.
  • Click on “Mail Settings”

But note that unless you verify the account it will not start showing up in the drop down list. Also you can now forward all your emails from your other accounts to Gmail. So it’ll become all-in-one email box for you. Now when you compose a mail just select the email you would like to display on your readers mailbox. Isn’t it easy.

Go ahead and give this a try.
