Let's say I have two Google accounts: [email protected] and [email protected].

I am connected to Gmail on my perso account. I have added pro as an alias address to send mail as, in the Gmail settings (Settings > Accounts and Import > Send mail as).

But, when I select the [email protected] address when sending a mail, some of my contacts sometimes still see the original, [email protected] address. And by checking the raw message, apparently, [email protected] is still used in the Sender: field; [email protected] is only present in the From: field.

How to make it so that the persons I send mail to never see the address [email protected]? I tried checking and unchecking "Treat as an alias" in the Gmail settings, but this did not change.

not possible. even if its set up like this:

it will still shows (under Show Original) which account was an initial sender; and the initial sender is also shown if it was sent from a delegate account

  • well, yes, it looks like this, and yet the Sender: field in the mail uses the wrong mail. The From: field is correct. You can check it yourself by sending a mail from your alias and then going to the "View original" option in the sent mail. Jul 17, 2018 at 22:09

    @Jean-MichaëlCelerier you are right. I even tried to send it from my delegate account and it still shows my supreme email but now in X-Google-Sender-Delegation: ... my conclusion - it's not possible to anonymize it
