I have currently setup Gmail as my unified Inbox. Mail from several accounts gets forwarded to it and I heavily use Gmail's 'send as' feature (Where gmail connects to a smtp server and sends the mail over the other account for me).

Now my question is whether it is possible to use this feature from within mutt without having to set up imap & smtp access to my other accounts

According to google

".... you can use Gmail's outbound servers with a different "from" address. If you've already configured the alternate address, your message will be sent from:[email protected], sender:[email protected], regardless of which custom from configuration you chose."

and you can set the from address in mutt by

The primary way to set your default sender address is through the $from and $realname variables in muttrc:

set realname="Joe User" set from="user@host" set use_from=yes

  • This doesn't work with the "own SMTP server" configuration in Gmail. The message is sent directly from Gmail's to recipient's servers. Commented May 17, 2011 at 10:54
  • I was under the send as was the one where gmail sends e mails with an 'on behalf of' flag?
