I have outlook 2010, my own web site address and my server is gmail.com. I have set up gmail to show both to and from addresses as my web address, how do I stop outlook 2010 showing my server address in messages I send. Currently it shows m server address on behalf of my web address, can I make it show only my web address.

and your domain is hosted by gmail? if so did gmail gave you email server information and login information?

The main issue is that you don't appear to have SendAs permission but Send on Behalf.

When composing the email, which email address is select as being the sending address?

I have several email addresses including Gmail.
I have them entered in my Outlook, and they checked for incoming and can be selected as to which one I want to use when composing an email or reply.

I have been using Outlook since the free 95 version and currently on 365 (2016).
I have never messed with the permissions just selected which address I wished to use.

Then set the "Default" to be [email protected],
BUT if you want the default to be used in a replay received by the way of Gmail, then you need to select the [email protected] as the sending address.

This "on the behalf" message is standard method that is used by most all email services.

Yes, set the default in Outlook, as that is the program that you are using, NOT Gmail

  1. Select File > Account Settings > Account Settings.
  2. From the list of accounts on the Email tab, select the account you want to use as the default account.
  3. Select Set as Default > Close.

The set as default tab is greyed out. This may be because its the only account listed sis set by default, but it shows send on behalof not send as

Set up BOTH accounts in Outlook, but also turn off the "on behalf of" at Gmail.com.
Once this is done, within Outlook you should be to set the default.
