This is a quick tutorial on how you can enable Gmail to use more e-mail addresses in your “from” field. Useful for sending mail from your email@example.com custom e-mail from within Gmail.
First step is to buy a domain name. With most domain registrars you can set up a number of e-mail addresses, either with their own inbox or with that e-mail address linking to another e-mail. Basically you’re saying that all e-mail sent to firstname.lastname@example.org should go to my normal e-mail inbox (email@example.com for example). Once someone linked your mail to your normal inbox you can move on to the next step of setting it up on the other end (sending mail from firstname.lastname@example.org emails)
All set and done. Now when you compose a new e-mail from within Gmail there should be a dropdown menu in your “from” field where you can choose which e-mail to display to the receiver.
