i see, then here is another thought... create a new email account for each alias but give a bogus incoming email account, just force create the account, use the outgoing server of your main email account, for each of these "alias" accounts. then for each of these "alias" accounts make sure that you unselect "automatically check for mail" in mail>preferences>accounts>advanced that way you will be able to send, and you do not care about receiving from them, as i guess you will be receiving from your main account. i think if you use this workaround, you will get a sign next to your inbox, stating that there is a problem with that "alias" inbox, not to worry but cosmetically annoying.
hope this helps
Thank you for continuing to try and help.
I have already tried that. Unfortunately the SMTP server only accepts the primary email address for authentication and, when you look at the message, you find it in the long headers so it defeats the object of using a disposable address.
You would think that my ISP would be able to help but unfortunately their support service is about as much use as a chocolate teapot.
