I'm using Google Apps Standard.

I created an alias ([email protected]) for my account ([email protected]). When people email me at [email protected], it correctly arrives at my [email protected] email address.

How can I send mail using this alias address? That is, the [email protected] address should appear as the sender to whomever I email, and my real address ([email protected]) should never be revealed to them.

Apparently, you must add it as a Send As email on the account where the alias is defined. This must be done even if you are going to use a separate account to email from this address. This is exactly the same behavior as sending from a plus address.

For the authentication, you should use:

  • Email: Your alias (e.g. [email protected])
  • Username: Your email address (e.g. [email protected]). Note: this is different from using a plus address in that you cannot use the alias as the username, you must use the real email address.
  • Password: Your email address' password
