Is there a way to change the “from” name/email address on a canned response auto responder?

I have one account setup with a nickname and a filter with a canned response (an ex employee), but when the canned response is sent, it comes from [email protected].

Is there any way to make it come from the regular nickname address?

Or even from the regular account address instead of the canned email address?

Under SettingsAccountsSend mail asWhen replying to a messageReply from the same address the message was sent to.

Under SettingsAccountsSend mail as → edit info, you can change the name it is coming from.

It will still have canned response.

The alternative is to write a Google Apps Script to eliminate the special canned response email address.
