Google done got cool mail!

Google mail is now even cooler!

I just discovered that if you go Settings->Accounts, you can choose to add other “From” addresses to send mail from!

This is fantastic – if you have another address that forwards to your gmail, you can now respond from that address – completely transparently! No advertising, no google branding *anywhere*.

Even if you don’t – you can set gmail to pull your mail from elsewhere, then respond to it from that address – great for a temporary solution while you’re on the road…

I’m in love.

    Okay, so I was wrong: gmail changes the From: header, but leaves your real address in the Sender: header. I’m sure everyone in the world is aware of this by now, over 3 years later.
