  2. Click Add Account.

  3. To confirm, sign in to the account you added.

  4. Open the confirmation message, and click the link.

And voilà! You've successfully added an email alias to your Gmail account.

Step 2 - Add your alias in Mailmeteor

You can now add your alias in Mailmeteor. Here's how to do it from the Google Sheets add-on:

  1. Open Mailmeteor in Google Sheets.

  1. Click on More options.

  1. Select Create a new alias.

  1. Add your alias name and email address.

  1. Click Save.

Your alias is now ready. Great job! 🎉 To send messages from your alias, click Cancel to return to the main menu. In the Sender name field, click the ("▼") symbol next to your email address and select your alias.

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.
