Hello all,


I am hoping to change my 'From' email address in in Lion. I have my own SMTP credentails to use my own domain email address in gmail. I would love to use this same 'from' address in, but I cannot work out how this works. Is this possible? I want to stop having my Gmail address being shown when I use


Ideally, this would also work in the Mail app in iOS.


I know that I cannot use my own domain email in iCloud, so for now I must continue to use Gmail.


I would love to hear the experiences of powerusers in on Lion.

    Make change here,


    or add another email address to the list seperated by comma,  this will give you a drop down menu to choose which address you want in From field.
