    I have three different email accounts that I use for work. I have them all forwarded to gmail. When a client emails me, I have to email them back from a specific email. However, when I am on the road, I cannot send emails from gmail on my iphone or ipad because they always come up with my gmial address and not on of my alias.

    I have tried going to gmail.com, loading the desktop view, and sending from there, but that does not seem work.

    Does anyone have a solution?

    Thanks.

    This is not really the answer to your specific question but if you subscribe to MobileMe then you can do something about this


    To send email with a MobileMe alias on your iPad,
    create an account (Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add Account...) choosing "Other", instead of MobileMe, with IMAP Acct info:
    Name = how you want your name to appear to the Recipient,
    Address = your MobileMe alias,
    Password = your MobileMe password,
    Description = how you want it to appear on your iPad.
    Incoming Mail Server: Host Name = mail.me.com, User Name = MobileMe address, Password = MobileMe password.
    Outgoing mail Server: SMTP = smtp.me.com

    Thanks for the suggestion Tim. Unfortunately, it wont work. First, from what I understand, apple is no longer accepting new mobileme subscribers. Second, I have to use gmail for my work because we sync our calendars.

    OK - sorry about that. I don't know of any way of achieving what you want to do unfortunately.

    Thanks Marilyn,

    My trouble is my lack of tech savvy. I have found similar solutions to the one you posted, but when I set up a new account, I have to provide an incoming email account information in order to verify the account. that is where I get tripped up. I am not sure what to put into those fields based on my server email addresses.

    Thanks for the link. I am going to keep trying.
