iPhone and Google Apps - Sending emails from Gmail alias (nickname)

Sending emails from Gmail nickname

If you use default iPhone Gmail IMAP (or MS Exchange) setup wizard, all emails will be sent from the primary Gmail alias. If you try to use an alias in the wizard it will not work as Gmail won't allow you to login using an alias. iPhone also doesn't allow to manually enter custom email address in the "From" field.
Luckily you can work around this by setting account usingĀ custom IMAP setup.

Let's say in Google apps you have primary email address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and an additional alias (nickname) sales@domain.com. If you want iPhone to send emails from This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. perform following setup (you must have This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. alias already setup and activated in your Google Apps domain settings)
