How to select a different "From" ??
Question asked by Curtis Kropar www.HawaiianHope.org - December 23, 2015 at 10:50 AM
Answered
When i go to compose a new email, at the top next to "from" it has a drop down list, but my email account is the only one in there.  What is that used or intended for ?  Is that were an email Alias would go (if it were possible to send from an alias) ?
What sets that box ?  Is it possible to select and send "from" a different email address other than the one i am logged into ?  What is the purpose of that being a drop down list ?

Hi Curtis!
 
You can add another account by setting up SMTP Accounts. When you have an SMTP Account set up, it will show in this dropdown so you can choose which account to send messages from. 
 
Also, as kevind stated (thanks for your response, Kevin!), Domain Aliases will show up here as well, but user aliases won't. The reason you can send from the domain alias is because it uses the users' mailbox to send from, whereas user aliases don't have an associated mailbox.

Hey Curtis,
 
Quick update: We are currently reviewing this functionality (sending as an alias) as a planned inclusion in SmarterMail 16!
