Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

acct if you don’t already have one, at:

http://www.gmail.com

in gmail, go to Settings > Accounts.

where it says Send Mail As, click Edit Info.

in the Edit Email Address window, change (a) Name to something you want
to use if the default isn’t correct, and (b) Reply-to Address to the
name & email address you want email recipients to see & reply to. mine,
for instance, says:

Scott Granneman <scott@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

press Save Changes to close Edit Email Address.

in Send Mail As, make sure that “Reply from the same address the message
was sent to” is checked, as that way, if someone emails you specifically
@ your gmail address, you will reply from that, but if they email you to
the address you’re setting up as the Reply-to, that will be used instead.

now, in your email client (Thunderbird, Evolution, etc.), go to wherever
you set up SMTP. you need to add/change settings for gmail’s smtp.
specific instructions are available for your client in gmail’s help, but
here are the generic instructions.

server name: smtp.gmail.com
port: 587
secure connection: TLS
enable authentication
authenticate with your gmail address as your user name
authenticate with your gmail password as your password

try sending an email to yourself using your gmail smtp. the bonus to
this is that all smtp b/n you & gmail is encrypted, so no snooping by
others when you’re sending mail.

Gmail, hotmail, and yahoo are a few. You can set these up for SMTP or POP with applications like Outlook.

    I would suggest going another route. Try using an SMTP engine that resides on your computer, like Post Cast Server. (http://www.postcastserver.com/)
