Send from an alias

How to send emails from a different address or alias with Mailmeteor?

An alias is another email address you own. If you own another email address, you can send mail as that address. For example:

  • Another Gmail address

  • Yahoo, Outlook, or other non-Gmail address

  • Your work, school, or business domain or alias, like @yourschool.edu or youralias@gmail.com

Sending from an alias is a premium feature. To send emails from an alias, you need first to upgrade on our paid plans or apply to our Education Program.

How to use email alias with Mailmeteor?

1) Configure an alias address in Gmail

First, you need to have configured an alias in Gmail. Google has a very good guide on that, which we have reported below the main steps:

  1. In Gmail, in the top right, click Settings Settings and then Settings

  2. Click the Accounts and import or Accounts tab.

  3. In the "Send mail as" section, click Add another email address.

  4. Enter your name and the address you want to send from.

  5. Click Next Step and then Send verification.

  6. For school or work accounts, enter the SMTP server and the username and password on that account. The SMTP server for Gmail addresses is smtp.gmail.com, the SMTP server for Outlook addresses is smtp-mail.outlook.com.

  7. Click Add Account.

  8. Confirm the address: sign in to the account you added.

  9. Open the confirmation message you got from Gmail, click the link.

  10. Voilà! you have added an email alias

2) Add your alias on Mailmeteor

Once you have set up the email alias in Gmail, you can add the alias in Mailmeteor.

Checklist before using an email alias

  1. Make sure to copy 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 fallback to your primary email.

  2. Verify your email alias rate limits. If you want to use an email alias different from a Gmail account (like a Yahoo address or OVH address), your sending limit may vary depending on the provider. For example, Yahoo Mail email send limit is no more than 100 emails or recipients per hour. You may be limited if you try to send more emails than the limits.
