I have my work email address forwarded to gmail, I when I recieve an email from my work (being redirected through gmail), it doesn't give me the "send using" option. Is there any workaround for this?
My only other option is going back to recieving my email through BIS, without using gmail, but then all my spam is back (about 20-25 per day).
I don't have this problem but I forward my Gmail to my 8100 and maybe that's the difference, I don't use the TMO site to foward. I never send from gmail although its the only account I receive from, on both outlook and my BB.
In outlook, I changed the outgoing smtp server settings for my gmail account to Yahoo and my BB is responding from my TMO BB account. All of my POP/work/HTML accounts are forwarded to GMAIL.
You shouldn't have to use "send from"... I can't reply from my Gmail account because of the "on behalf of
" stuff and it must appear as though it came from my work account.
