I'm really stuck.. I have a Gmail account (through Google Apps for Business) that I have configured with Mail on my iPhone using Exchange to connect the account. Everything has been working flawlessly, until my employer made a change to our email addresses, so that we had to set up a new domain alias through Gmail as our "send from" account.


My problem is that I can't for the life of me figure out how to send from this new address from my iPhone.


Finally, I found a post on the web that seems to explain a way to do this, using the OTHER account setup (IMAP) on the iPhone (instead of either Gmail or Exchange):  That seemed to do the trick, except then I realized I would no longer have Push email, which I have really come to rely on.


I tried using the native iPhone Gmail app for a few days, as that seemed to be the only solution, but there's just so many things about that app that really make me miss my good 'ol Apple mail.


Any other creative solutions out there? Thanks for any advice!

    yeah, it used to work fine because google was supported exchange on mobile devices up until the end of february or so. they let everyone keep their settings the way they were unless they changed them or deleted them, so that's totally expected. The thing with the push is that gmail no longer seems to be supporting that behavior through native apps on mobile devices because it's something they want their exchange customers to pay for
