I pay for a UK domain, lets call it "firstname-lastname". So I have an email address "ian@firstname-lastname.co.uk" and I also have a server supplied email address which is say "firstname-lastname@gmail.com".

I have gmail set up so that all mail comes from and is sent to ian@firstname-lastname.co.uk but I can't seem to set Outlook16 up to do the same. All sent messages have "firstname-lastname@gmail.com" as the sender.

How can I set Outlook 2016 up to show "ian@firstname-lastname.co.uk" as the sender automatically.

Any help would be appreciated.

Assuming that you have the UK domain in Outlook, go into Account Settings, highlight the account and then Set As Default.

I am not sure what you mean, on the first page of the account settings I have my name and my account which is Ian's Gmail Account and a reply address whis mynam@myaccount.co.uk but sent items still appear when received as coming from gmail. How do I stop that happening.

It's been a while since I have used Outlook for non-corporate accounts, but to confirm, are you referring to this reply setting?

If not, can you submit a screenshot (redact personal info) so I can see what you are saying because there is no Reply Address that I know of in Account Settings.

If you're using Gmail's SMTP server, you're authenticating to that server with your Gmail credentials, right? I don't think Gmail is going to allow your emails to show as being from your domain when you're sending them through Gmail's servers. Does your webhost have an SMTP you can use with your domain?

Gmail itself shows all my mail as coming from and being sent to me@mydomain, why would it not let outlook do teh same. it seems to me its an outlook issue, but I am really out of my depth.

G-Mail does have this capability, Outlook does not.

Why are you not using the outgoing server for your .co.uk account?
