I found that it is possible to have several email accounts in Gmail. But how do you send email not from the default Gmail account, but from an imported one?

As the link that @ale provided indicates, you can send emails through Gmail using an imported account by changing the From attribute. (This article assumes you've already linked your other email address into Gmail; if you haven't, the link above will show you how to do that.)

Here are the instructions from that link for changing the From address:

  1. In the message, click the "From" line.
    (If you don't see this, click the space next to the recipient's email.)
  2. Select the address to send from.

If you want to set up Gmail to always send from another address, you can see how to do that further down on the same help page, here.
