I tried to setup my GMail-Account including my various send-as-addresses that I set up in the Webmail interface using this great tutorial.

However, I have two issues:

  1. I cannot setup multiple S/MIME signing certificates, so only one address can send signed mails.
  2. The iPhone has it's own idea which address should be the default from-Address.

Is there any way to setup a GMail-Account so there is one inbox, multiple send-as-addresses and an S/MIME-signing-certificate set up for each address, and a user-selectable default address? Apple Mail on OS X can do that.

Default from account for Mail can be set in Settings->Mail->Default Account, just below Signature setting. – Eir Nym Mar 17 '13 at 15:01
That's right - but I only have one Account. I do have multiple addresses, but they're all assigned to the same account. – fefrei Mar 17 '13 at 16:19
