Let's say I have a primary gmail account called john@gmail.com. I also have an university's email, called say john123456@university.com. And this university email has an alias, served by the university's server, called john@university.com.

My question is: how can I fully incorporate the university email alias to my primary email environment? In other words, I want to send, receive, and have people see ONLY the email alias, not the original one.

Right now I've added the account to my gmail page, so I can receive emails as the alias, "Send email as" the alias, but receivers still see the john123456@university.com, not john@university.com. I've tried many things already, read all support pages, but I've found nothing covering this situation.

Edit: This link from Google Support says it's impossible. But is it really? "Messages you send will appear to be from the domain alias or email alias. The return-path of the message will indicate your primary mail addresses, but only recipients who look at the original message header will notice."

    What do you mean "receivers still see the john123456@..."? When you "Send Mail As" john@, do the messages say something like "sent on behalf of..."? – ale Aug 30 '15 at 1:17
  • There's no "sent on behalf of...", and what I mean is that recipients still see john123456@university.com besides my name, and not john@university.com. – Ricardo Dahis Aug 31 '15 at 14:19
