Gmail Removes “On Behalf Of” For Real This Time [Gmail]

A few months back we got word that Gmail had fixed the annoying “On behalf of” nonsense that showed in your email headers when you sent email from your consolidated email addresses via Gmail—an annoyance that steered many away from using Gmail to send from alternate addresses. It turned out to be a bug that time around, but Gmail has now officially offered the option to remove the "On behalf of" indicator, meaning you can now send emails from several different addresses via one central hub in Gmail without tipping your hat to the recipient.

To switch to this new method, go to the Accounts page under Settings, and click “edit info” from the “Send mail as” section. Then choose the option to “Use your other email provider’s SMTP servers.”
