    I have an email address set up which I consider to be my main email address. This address is set up to forward to a googlemail account which is where I collect from on the PC or iPhone.

    Is there anyway on the iPhone for me to have the return address of my main email address as opposed to the googlemail address when I send email from it? So anyone getting a reply to an email or any email from my iphone sees and replies to the main address and not the googlemail address?

    I know this is extremely easy on the Mac and PC. iPhone it doesn't look to be!

    In order to send from that account, you will need to set it up on the iPhone.

    You cannot set the Reply-to address in the iPhone version of Mail. I wish we could.

    Most mail servers also do not allow relaying. If your return address is different from the the server you are sending from it may bounce back also.

    i have an Exchange account working with a gmail, return address. It's possible but you do need an second account set up.

    then your exchange server is set up to allow forwarding. most providers block this on purpose. It is a means to block spam that has tons of different return address.
