Use One Gmail Account to Send Emails from Multiple IDs

In this post, I am going to show you how to use your Gmail account to send and receive emails from multiple addresses. Most of us own more than one email account say for example, one fromGmail, one from Yahoo and one fromHotmail. If you are tired of logging into multiple accounts to check your inbox or send emails, I have a solution here.
Gmail has an option to integrate multiple email accounts (email addresses) into a single Gmail account. Once you integrate multiple email addresses into your Gmail account, you can use the same account to send and receive emails for different email addresses you have. Let’s take a simple example.
Suppose you have three email addresses (email accounts):
  1. Vishal@gmail.com
  2. Vishal@yahoo.com
  3. Vishal@hotmail.com
You can integrate the emailsjohn@yahoo.com andjohn@hotmail.com to Vishal@gmail.comand operate all the three accounts from your single gmail account. Here is a step-by-step procedure to do this:
  1. Login to your gmail account.
  2. Click on Settings at the top right corner.
  3. Under Settings, click on the  Accounts tab.
  4. Now you’ll see the first option “Send mail as:
  5. Under this option, click on Add another email address you own.
  6. Now a small new window will pop-up asking you to enter the details of your new email address.
  7. Here you can enter any name andany email address. The email address need not belong to gmail only. You can enter your yahoo, hotmail or any other valid email address.
  8. Verification email will be sent to the address that you specify. Once you verify that you own the email address, it will be integrated to your Gmail account.
Now, when you compose a new email, you’ll see an option to select from multiple address to send the mail. Also you’ll receive the incoming mails for multiple addresses to a single mailbox. I hope this will benefit you.
Before you leave, I should also tell you one good advantage of this. According to Gmail privacy policy, they will not send the user’s IP address in the outgoing emails. That means, when you send an email from your Gmail account , the receiver will not be able to find out your IP address. But you do not have this advantage in Yahoo or other email providers.
Please share your opinions through comments. I hope this helps….
