So here's my problem, I want to reply from my gmail account so it looks like the mail comes from my domain e-mail address. WITHOUT a gmail sender field.
Here's my set up:
firstname.lastname@example.org - Forwarding to email@example.com
firstname.lastname@example.org - Forwarding to email@example.com
When I reply from google (I use Thunderbird set up as IMAP) I want the reply to come from firstname.lastname@example.org without any association to email@example.com
After setting things up correctly in google (using googles outgoing SMTP) I thought all was well but the reply coming from firstname.lastname@example.org then has sender email@example.com in brackets afterwards. - No good for the small business as the two addresses are confusing.
I've searched many forums and it says you can add your ISP's outgoing SMTP as a solution however it doesn't seem to work with my set up and I'm pretty new to all this :P
My other problem is that my domain (through Register Direct) says to use my ISP's outgoing SMTP but for the purposes of solving this problem it seems that having an outgoing SMTP setting in the google account 'send mail as' for Telstra Clear when I want it to look like it's sent from firstname.lastname@example.org would be wrong?
Any help much appreciated, I've been trying for ages!
* I should also add that I'm on a regular gmail not google apps. Would changing to Google Apps help my situation at all?
