This question already has an answer here:
My Gmail address is
firstname.lastname@example.org. I am thinking about removing the dot and use
email@example.com as my primary mail address. I know that I already receive mails which are addressed to
firstname.lastname@example.org since Gmail ignores the dots. Still, I want my primary address to be
email@example.com, meaning that my outgoing mail should be seen as being sent by
I know that there is the setting "send mail as" where I can configure a secondary email address as
firstname.lastname@example.org, but this does not satisfy me since in the email source code there will be the fields "return-path" and "sender" which still hold
email@example.com. I would like to be able to send mails without
firstname.lastname@example.org appearing in the source code of sent mail.
I think this can only be achieved by changing my primary mail-address from
email@example.com. Since I cannot register a new Gmail address with my preferred name, because Gmail ignores dots, I do not know how to do this.
