This page will guide you through changing your sent-from email address in Rice Gmail. This will change the appearance of the email address in the 'from' field on sent emails. One recommended use for this feature is making a more professional alias than the standard NetID@rice.edu format, for example, FirstnameLastname@rice.edu.
This guide will show you how to add your sent-from email address in Rice Gmail.
Login to your Rice Gmail account, then find the Gear icon and select Settings.
Choose Accounts and Send Mail as:
Select "Add another email address you own" and another window will pop up where you type in the alias address and select the Next Step button.
Send yourself a Verification message.
When the Verification message arrives, click the link inside.
That will seal the deal and you'll get a confirmation screen like this:
Log back into your Rice Gmail account and select the Gear icon, then go to Account and Settings, you'll see your alias and your NetID addresses.
