I have been using an alias on my gmail business account for years. Today I tried to send an email from it and got back an error message:

You no longer have access to *****. To send this email, choose a different ‘from’ address and try again

If I try to send an email, this alias is listed in available from options. If I go into my account settings, it is still listed as an alias.

To clarify this is not an external email, it's an alias e.g. my main account is [email protected], the alias is [email protected]

What's going on? I use this alias almost as much as the main email address itself.

The typical fix that resolves this hiccup is to remove and re-add the address under "Send mail as".
