    I have just changed over to Samsung after being a long time iPhone user. Most things I am getting used to but I can't work out how to setup an email alias in the native email app. I set up my account but the normal email address I have been using for years is an alias.

    Much appreciated if anyone can help.

    I use Blue Mail, but it logs into my main Yahoo account.

    You can set up the name you want to use and also alias accounts "IIRC".

    It handles multiple accounts and you can choose to look at only one account at a time, or have all of them display under one combined "inbox". It shows you which account the email is from. I use the combined inbox.

    I tried the app and it didn't work unfortunately. The iPhone allows another account using the same outgoing protocols. When you write an email it asks which email you want to send from..? Any other ideas out there?
    Much appreciated

    This can be a bit confusing....at least for me it was....but I did figure it out. You need to log into your gmail account....go to settings.....and then click on "accounts and import". From there you can add all your email address and make them an "alias" if you wish. You might also want to check out this link: https://support.google.com/mail/answ...hl=en&ctx=mail. This explained a lot to me and helped me figured things out.

    I am using K-@ Mail as my email client on my S5 and using Thunderbird as my email client on my pc. I have 4 gmail accounts set up and I can send from any one of those 4 email's from my Thunderbird email app on my pc. I hope this give you some help.

    Hi thanks for that. My alias isnt t through Google. Today I was told about aqua mail and that the paid app allows the use of identities within an account it worked a treat. Thanks

    I am trying to set up Blue Mail, also using my Yahoo account, but can't find how to set my alias aka "from" or "reply-to" for outgoing email. Suggestions?
    Thanks, Ted

    Did anyone ever respond to your question? I'm writing over a year later and I just found this and you are asking my same question. I have Blue Mail and I like it, but would also like to use an alias, but I can't find anything in it that would allow me to do that. any suggestions?
