    Have you checked the signature in Settings > Mail? Maybe you have it set to that?

    I've tried to figure out how to suppress the gmail information too, but not successfully. I gave up.

    Go to your Gmail account, on the web, not the phone, and change your outgoing mail prefs.

    1. Use your computer to log in to your Gmail account on the internet.
    2. Click on Settings.
    3. Click on Accounts.
    4. Select option to 'reply from the same address the message was sent to'.

    Hope this helps and achieves the result that you are looking for. :)

    Why would you want to spoof your e-mail address, which by the way can be a violation of an ISP's terms of service?

    Are you planning to spam people from your iPhone? Not very effective for doing it one at a time, you know.

    have you tried going to mail preferences (iPhone) and under the default account for sending messages just change it to your Gmail account?

    :D

    Hope this solve your problem

    irrelevant. I'm just running a small business and need to send email from my business account, not from gmail.
