    Hello everyone,

    I am having real trouble with my mac email.
    I have used gmail with many aliases for quite some time.
    The way that I set this up is;
    I set up a primary gmail address.
    Then in the mail settings I add each alias email with a comma after the first gmail address.
    I know this is a widely used method.
    Then in gmail I setup the alias as a "send mail as"

    With the newest version of mail when I send an email from the alias all looks correct. It shows the primary gmail address as the email with the alias as the name.

    Primary is
    alias is

    When I send email as it shows.
    from: <>

    Sorry if this is a bit confusing.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    I searched around the forum for something similar.
    But I could not find anything.

    Did you setup the smtp settings for both alias?
