I am currently using GMail simply as a web-based mail client. I am not really using my GMail email, but rather I have my email forwarded to GMail and I write my emails as my alternate email identity from inside GMail. I recently found out that GMail, in fact, puts "email@example.com on the behalf of firstname.lastname@example.org" in the from field instead of just "email@example.com". This is not an option for me. I am very annoyed that I didn't find this out before. I have two options: find a way to make GMail just put firstname.lastname@example.org in the from field or leave GMail. So, does anyone know a way to make GMail do the from field as I want it? If not, then I'm leaving GMail for Mail.app. I have it up to here with GMail and its far too abundant limitations--I think it's time to say goodbye to GMail. So, how do I export my mail from GMail into Mail.app? All I have found online is how to export mail to GMail from various mail clients, not the other way. It seems I am among a minority in wanting to leave GMail. But, I can't leave GMail until I have exported all my mail. Please help me leave GMail. Thanks.
