I am currently using a secondary e-mail account on my phone, to which I forward just part of the e-mails from my main account. I would like to be able to select what identity to use when sending new e-mails or replying to received ones. An identity should allow me to specify a name and an e-mail address, which will be used in the From: header. Optionally an entirely different account should be configurable per identity. If this option will be available, it's very important that it is not made mandatory! I do not want to be forced to set my other accounts on the phone just to be able to use different identities.

...and I'm using Zoho.com with an own domain address so I have to use identities. Now it just means that I can't send emails from my phone because the sender is just 'mail' for me instead of the full name :( Can't really send mail from my phone because of this.

I agree with everything written!

Someone knows some hack to do that???

Thanks.

It should be definitely implemented. I have several e-mail addresses forwarded to a main e-mail service and I think I am not alone with this.

  • There should be an "identities" setting in the e-mail account settings page where several e-mail addresses could be added as identities.
  • When composing an e-mail the "From" field could be selected from the identities.
  • There should be a default identity (aka the one belonging to the e-mail account on the phone).
  • In case of replying to an e-mail, the identity should be chosen automatically according the address (to/cc) fields of the original e-mail (i.e. if I have an e-mail address forwarded to the one set up on my phone the "From" field of the replies should automatically be set as the original e-mail address not the one set up on the phone).

Not really a wonderful solution. But it gives us the possibility to trick mail app and create 'fake' accounts which will never receive/sync but allows us to send e-mail from another identity. https://together.jolla.com/question/201359/email-app-how-to-sendreceive-emails-with-alias-address/?answer=201571#post-id-201571
