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