I have a gmail account in Mail.app, [email protected].

How can I send mail from Mail.app using the [email protected] From address, instead of the [email protected] From address?

Looking through all Mail preferences and System Preferences > Internet Accounts I don't see how. Probably there's some workaround though.

  2. Select an account, then click Account Information.
  3. Click the Email Address pop-up menu, choose Edit Email Addresses, then do one of the following:
    • Add an alias: Click the Add button +, then enter a name and email address.

Send an email from an alias

  1. In the Mail app on your Mac, move the pointer over the From field in a message you’re writing.
  2. Click the pop-up menu that appears, then choose an email alias.
