    I am currently a Blackberry user and forward my work email to my device email address. From there, I can respond back with my work email address, not the device address.

    Is this functionality available through iPhone or offered through a 3rd party app?

    Not that I know of, but I'd like to have that too. It could make my iPhone much more useful for work email.

    I have 4 emails set up on my iphone, when I get an email from one
    I can type out a response then pick which email address to send
    it from.
    IE...
    I have my 2 work emails and 2 private emails forwarded to my yahoo
    account since I get it faster from yahoo, then I can reply and send
    it from my work or private email address, depends on who sends it
    to me, you just have to remember to switch to which one you
    want it sent from. You need to have them all setup on your phone thou.
    Extra steps but it works.

    Hope this helps

    Yes just tap on the out going email and you can choose.
    I am still learning my phone.

    This works, and I'm glad to know about it, but I would also like to be able to specify an address that isn't set up in my Mail app. My work email won't work with the iPhone, so I sometimes forward it to another account. I'd like the replies to seem to come from my work address. Wonder if it can be tricked into doing that.

    iFerd,

    I think you might be able to do that thru gmail if I read correctly
    some where online, go to your gmail and go to SETTINGS then
    under ACCOUNTS and check that out and see if thats what you
    are looking for.

    GMail won't really spoof e-mails -- it will change the 'From' header, but it will also add a "sent on behalf of" header with the address of the GMail account. This may or may not matter to you, but I figured I should point this out in case it does.

    I'm familiar with that, including the information about where it was actually sent from. So far as I know, though, even that won't work from the iPhone.
