Emails are now the most widely used communication method, and in the case of work and business, people are using different emails for different purposes. In that case, each of them is using separate applications/software for each.
There are a number of apps available in which additional emails can be managed in the same place. But in some cases, people are using an email alias for a particular email, so that same email is received and send using one email address. However, this will be a bit complicated case in Mobile.
Add Alias to Gmail
Today, we can go through this matter, in which we have an option to set an email alias for a particular email in the android application using the default Gmail App. To understand this thing more clearly, I am using some example emails here.
Ok, let’s start. For example, I have a primary email address for my domain, say, ‘[email protected]’, registered with a password that says ‘password123’. So here, I need to use ‘[email protected]’ and ‘[email protected]’ as the alias for the primary email address.
In this case, note that I have a google apps account with my domain ‘domain1.com’, and I added ‘domain2.com’ and ‘domain3.com’ as my domain alias for my primary domain. So here, when I create an email named ‘[email protected]’, I will also get email addresses such as ‘[email protected],’ and ‘[email protected]’ since the two domains are added as an alias for the primary one.
So, here we have three emails, and we need to add these three emails to My Android. The problem here is that even if you get three email addresses, you can log in to your account using the primary email address and password only.
So you can receive emails sent to these three email addresses in one place, but by sending emails from these three emails, you need to add an alias in your Gmail account. On desktop, go to Setting, then Account and Import, and there add your email alias.
Now again, come to Android. We can check the steps.
Steps to add Gmail Alias on Android
Step 1: In your android, goto settings.
Step 2: Click on Accounts.
Step 3: Click on Add Account.
Step 4: Click on Gmail Personal (IMAP)
Step 5: On the next page, you will be asked to enter your email address, add your 2nd email, say ‘[email protected]’, and click next
Step 6: Next, provide a password, say ‘password123’, click next
Step 7: In the next page (Incoming server), in the username column, provide your primary email address, i.e. ‘[email protected]’ and password say ‘password123’.
In the server field, enter ‘imap.gmail.com’, port as 993, and security as SSL/TLS. Click next.
Step 8: Now for outgoing server, in the username column, provide your primary email address, i.e. ‘[email protected]’ and password say ‘password123’.
In the server field, enter ‘smtp.gmail.com’, port as 587, and security as SSL/TLS. Click next.
Step 9: Now your account is connected, provide a name for the account. You can access the emails in the Gmail app itself.
In the same way, you can connect the 3rd email also. I didn’t mention the primary email because it is straightforward. You can use the primary email also in the same manner. In that case, the provided email and username will be the same.
Now you can send emails from your primary email and your email alias too, which was not possible using other email apps in Android now.
