Sending email from an alias using Gmail app

I use G-Suite for business. I have the main domain (Let’s call it example.com) and a number of secondary domains (we’ll use example.co.uk for this). I have set up aliases so that I can receive email sent to joe.user@example.com and also joe.user@example.co.uk.

Using GMail on the web I can select a default email address for outgoing email. So, although my primary address is joe.user@example.com my outgoing email appears to come from joe.user@example.co.uk

So far, so good.

Now I want to do the same thing on my Android phone and tablet.

How can I set up Gmail for Android to use my alias joe.user@example.co.uk instead of my primary address joe.user@example.com?

Note that I don’t want to reset the phone and sign in with a different address. I just want to change the GMail alias.

One answer to this question suggests it’s not possible, but that was five years ago. Has anything changed?

gmail – How can I reverse moving messages from archive to trash?

Concerned about space in my gmail I just took a rash and stupid action, and “deleted” everything from the “archive.” I did this on mozilla thunderbird on my mac. It’s clear to me I haven’t lost the messages (They’re now in my gmail trash, plus I have a second laptop that until it syncs has everything where it belongs, and time machine backups from a couple weeks ago….), but I am unsure how to restore the messages (i.e. get them all back in their appropriate folders). I would be happy with either

1) the best way to restore my gmail based on the version sitting on thunderbird on another computer or time machine backup

2) the best way to reverse this mass “deletion”

Do you have suggestions?

Gmail Notifications on my Galaxy Note10

I’ve used Galaxy Note 10 for about 6 months and one of the major issues that I have experienced was related to my gmail notification. I’d go several hours without receiving any emails and just think to check the app and as soon as I open the app then I’d have like 20 emails just sitting there that I had never received a push notification. Do you know any easy fix for this?

automation – How to add new label to gmail mail basing on previous labels + specific string

I’m trying to configure some automation when it comes to labelling my Gmail mailbox.
Currently, I want to apply label “X” to every new message that match the specific string “abc” and DON’T have label “Y”.

The problem I’m facing is that whenever someone responds to old thread with label “Y”, the filter is being triggered and this mail have to labels “X” and “Y”.

TLDR: I don’t want to label threads with specific label, but it is not working.

javascript – How do I change the font colour with keyboard shortcut in Gmail compose?

I often email responses inline to questions. In order to differentiate my response, I like to give them a colour.
This is quite onerous in Gmail, with about 3 clicks to get a colour applied.
I would love a keyboard shortcut or browser bar on click Javascript hack to do this… so question is, how to figure this out.

1.
Javascript edit the HTML by adding the tag around the selected words
<font color="#ff9900">The words to be changed</font>

Maybe using the .wrap() function – but difficult to work out the selector for some selected text

2.
Track the Gmail function that fires when the colour is selected in the Text Styling menu
– who to track a function in Javascript? Hmmm stuck too. Then setting it off with a keyboard shortcut somehow?

  1. ??

Would love some help here. I am sure others would benefit from this hack too.

Deleting inbox email in gmail results in delete of reply

When I do a reply and hit send in gmail, I sometimes will subsequently hit delete to delete the present email. But I have found that gmail will then subsequently delete the reply email in the Sent folder.

Which has me wondering:

  • Did the reply get sent out?
  • Can this behaviour be modified? Like, can the sent message be retained in Sent.

How do I link to a specific gmail search, google document etc on the correct google apps domain?

I want to provide links to specific GMail folders, GMail messages, Google Drive items etc on a company webpage.

Users may have multiple Google accounts and it is not guaranteed that their primary / default account is the company account.

You’d expect this to be trivial and well documented, but … not so much. Google multi-account support uses URLs with /u/2 (or similar) to differentiate users by login ordinal position in the current session. These links break if the user logs out of an account then back in and they cannot be shared correctly between users.

Google accounts have the seemingly undocumented feature of supporting /u?authuser=me@domain.com links which work but require a fully qualified user account. I could not find any documentation on it, nor any listing of supported paramters, and my guesses did not turn up any obvious “authdomain” type links that’d pick the currently logged in user matching the domain-part.

The redirect mechanism used by Google for subdomains does not appear to work for gmail links. You can’t take a link to https://mail.google.com/mail/u/1/#search/rfc822msgid%xxxxx%40mydomain.com and massage it into https://mail.mydomain.com/mail/u/#search/rfc822msgid%xxxxx%40mydomain.com or variants I tried with /u? etc. You’ll get an error like

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to mail.mydomain.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

(Firefox)

This site can’t be reached

mail.mydomain.com unexpectedly closed the connection.

(Chrome)

So all in all, it’s ghastly. Not to mention that GMail searches to specific messages or threads are already painful; you have to “view source” because you can’t customise the headers shown, then hand-concoct a rfc822msgid:THE_MSGID_HERE msgid search.

Am I missing some simple sane way to just send a link that’ll take the recipient to a specific label, mailbox, message ID, search, etc?
