Smile Using a different email address for outgoing emails on BIS

Please Login to Remove!

I am using an email redirection service for my emails. My email address [email address] only accepts emails and forwards them to my at&t bis address [email address]. Anytime I reply to these emails on my blackberry, the outgoing email address shows up as [email address]. Is there a way of making this address invisible while sending emails through my blackberry and having [email address] as the sender of my emails? The only option I could find on the BIS settings on bis.na.blackberry.net is changing reply-to address. But this still leaves the sender address as [email address]. I appreciate everybody's help.

Login to your BIS account and set-up the [email address] account. You will be able to send and receive emails from that account. After you set it up when you compose an email, you can scroll to the Send Using: Field and choose which account to use.

Good suggestion, but that solution will not take care of the reply email coming from the users blackberry.net address. However the Reply From set correctly at the BIS website should do so.

Well, here is the problem: the [email address] doesn't offer me a pop/imap server. It has a purely web based interface with the option of emails being forwarded to any email address you want. Therefore I cannot really set-up a server on BIS or can I?

gmail account is a good way to go but there are still some problems. I actually want to hide the [email address] or in the case of this gmail solution [email address] totally from the recipient's eyes. I want to make the email look like as if it came from my [email address] address. The header of an email address sent from a blackberry through gmail still shows signs of the original gmail address as you can see here:

Return-Path: <xxx@gmail.com>
Return-Path: <xxx@gmail.com>
Return-Receipt-To: [email address]
Reply-To: [email address]
To: [email address]
From: "=?utf-8?B?T251ciBEZW1pcmNp?=" <xxx@writeyou.com>
Sender: XXX XXX <xxx@gmail.com>

Any other ideas?

yes, under options you can create an email address that gmail will show as sender's address but as I mentioned the references to the original gmail address are still visible in the email's header and some email programs show the original gmail address as sender.

I am puzzled
