Checklist before using an email alias

  1. Make sure to copy and paste the exact email address of your email alias in Mailmeteor. If there is a typo in your alias email address or if the alias is not configured in Gmail, Mailmeteor will fall back to your primary email.

  2. Verify your email alias rate limits. If you want to send emails from a non-Gmail alias, like Yahoo, OVH, or Outlook, your sending limit may vary depending on the email service provider's email quota.
