    I have one IMAP email account and setup various email aliases. I used for each alias also a sender name. I tried to setup different sender email addresses and names in Apple Mail but did not succeed.

    I was only able to add a comma separate list o email addresses to one account but not different sender names for each email address.

    Can someone help with this issue?

    Many thanks,


    BTW, I also can't setup different accounts for each email address because they share the same IMAP Mail Server with the same account username and password.

    You're trying to send an email to multiple recipients? Just enter the name or the address, then hit return. will put the recipient's address in a blue oval bubble and let you enter the next one.

    Is this what you are asking about?

    Thanks for your answer, Spice. However I'm not referring to the recipient addresses but the sender addresses which I can select from the drop-down for the "FROM" field. I can select different email addresses but how can I add a different sender name for each email address though they use all the same account?

    In Mail > Preferences > Accounts I can comma separate the email addresses but it doesn't work to comma separate sender names.

    I don't think so either. You'd have to send at least two separate emails, one for all the people you want to send from account A, and one from account B, etc.
