comment How can I add a second sender address with different SMTP server in iOS?
Yes, and I want to send email using a different server – I just don’t see any way to do that without setting up a completely separate email account (the method you linked to above only adds a new SMTP as a backup for the default one and doesn’t allow to specify an email address for use with that server). GMail’s web interface and Sparrow, for example, allow this (using their Send Email As/Alias features and then setting a custom SMTP for an address), but I guess Apple’s client doesn’t. Anyway, thanks for trying to help, appreciate it. :)

And how does that binding work? I can add new email addresses (by entering them comma-separated into the account’s Email field) and new SMTP servers (via the method you described) independently from each other. Also, if I send an email from my university address with the university’s SMTP server set up via that method, it still uses GMail’s SMTP server (according to the mail headers).

That popup menu only shows addresses for me, not servers.

Yes, but that page does not explain how to assign the server to an address. It sounds more like “if the default SMTP is down/unreachable, it will try to use the other one instead”. What I want is to always use it for mails I send from one specific address (and always use the default server for the primary address).
