I have an additional email address firstname.lastname@example.org associated with my Google Groups account that I use as sender on some groups. I can use this account to log into gmail by providing email@example.com as the username, but when I log in I really log into my firstname.lastname@example.org account and need to use the same password.
I'm unable to receive email on email@example.com and email to this account bounces. When I try to claim the account using Accounts and Import -> Send mail as I don't receive the verification email.
It looks like my firstname.lastname@example.org only works like an alias for my email@example.com, but I would rather also have the opportunity to receive email also on this separate account that Google Groups has as an option for subscription.
Would this be possible somehow?
