Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

If you send an email through an alias, as some webmail providers offer, how transparent will your actual username be to the recipient (like someone@gmx.de) and to its service provider (in this example GMX)?

Can the recipient or anyone in the middle find out the original account by inspecting the headers?

Yes, it's often seen by the recipient as "on behalf of". However, there is a workaround with gmail. If it requires GoogleApps, there's a free "standard" version of that. https://www.google.com/a/cpanel/domain/new
