    Hi, I have 2 questions:

    1 - I have a gmail account that I'm using MacMail for. I have 2 other email addresses that were already being forwarded to gmail. On gmail web browser, I had the setting such that if someone emailed to my Email #2, then when I reply, it would automatically go out from Email #2 (even if Email #1 is the gmail address). Is there a way to do this on the MacMail as well?? right now, all my outgoing messages are being sent from my gmail address :(

    2 - When I am writing an email, it seems to save my email drafts along the way. So I have like 5 drafts (all from different stages) in addition to the final message that I send off. On MacMail, the incomplete drafts all get sent to trash. On gmail web browser, however, all 5 drafts show up as part of the email "thread"! The incomplete versions don't get sent to the recepient, right?? Is there a way to turn this off??

    You can have multiple email addresses by putting them in a comma separated list (e.g. ","). They go in's Preferences/Accounts/YOURACCOUNT/Account Information/Email Address.

    I've not experienced your other problem.

    Same Problem

    I have other email addresses forwarded to my gmail account. Within gmail I have it set up so that I can reply to those emails using the address it was sent to. Meaning it will say my comcast email in the "from" line, even though I used my gmail account to reply to the message. I have set up my gmail as an imap account in my macmail, and now I have lost the ability to reply using whatever email address the message was sent to. Does anyone know how to address this issue?
