I have a Google Apps account with 1 primary domain and a secondary alias domain (let's say example.co.uk and example.com). When I send emails from the alias domain, the receiving person sees the sender as "firstname.lastname@example.org On Behalf Of email@example.com", which is a bit messy. How do I get rid of this?
To do this, you need to set up Gmail to send emails via an "external" mail server. However, since the alias domain is already registered with Google, you can in fact set this "external" server to their servers and have it work just fine!
If you don't have this other domain added as an alias and are just sending from an additional email address you'll have to send via the email servers of this other domain.
(Yes, I know I answered my own question, but it took me an age to figure this out, so I wanted to share it!)

You can use gmail's send-through feature. Under settings -> accounts and import, edit the email address in question, and when prompted, choose to "send email through example.com SMTP servers". After configuring the SMTP server settings, you should be good to go.
