How can I remove the Sender header ("on behalf of") when sending from a different address in Gmail? Will Google Apps help me do what I want?
I am the administrator for the domain example.com. One of my users wants to use their existing Gmail account firstname.lastname@example.org for email. They want to be able to send mail as email@example.com. They can do this with the "Send Mail As" feature of Gmail. So far so good.
But Gmail unfortunately adds "Sender: firstname.lastname@example.org" in the headers (revealing their Gmail address, which is bad) and Outlook displays "email@example.com on behalf of firstname.lastname@example.org" on their messages (which is confusing and unprofessional). See this Google help page
at the bottom.
My primary question is: how can I eliminate that Sender header/"on behalf of"?
I read the previous AskMe question
that says Google Apps
is the solution, but when I set up the example.com domain with Google Apps, it creates an entirely separate Gmail account for email@example.com. My user does not want to have to login to a separate account. The user wants one Gmail account that can send as either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, without the Sender header appearing.
Is this possible with Google Apps, and what do I need to do to enable it? I know I can set up forwarding from firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com, but when the user sends mail, will he have to login to his firstname.lastname@example.org Gmail account to avoid the Sender header?
How do people use Gmail and get around this Sender/on behalf of nonsense? Is the only solution to have two separate Gmail accounts?
