    I am currently using GMAIL to receive both @gmail.com and my work email address.

    I set up the addresses on the web so that I can choose which address I want to use as send-from, either @gmail.com or @work_email.

    But how to do that on iPhone? I can set up my email account for gmail to send from gmail, or I can set it up as if it's sent from my work email address.

    But I can't do both! I can't figure out how to choose "send from" email address.

    BTW, here is what I did:

    Mail -> set up -> add account... -> Other

    In email address, I filled out my work email address.

    For both IMAP and SMTP, I used GMAIL because GMAIL has all the emails.

    Now I can send email as if from my work email address, but I can't send it from gmail anymore.

    I hope I described it clearly, and I hope there is a solution!

    Thanks!

    I don't think you can. Only if you set up your work email on the iPhone as well will you be able to pick which email to send it through, but then you would be getting duplicate emails.

    If this was possible, we'd all be getting free push email without all the problems (see the push email thread)
