NOTE: I looked for a forum for apps, but couldn't find one [hint: you should have a forum to discuss google native Android apps]. If there is one and I missed it, kindly point me to it. .

I have long since removed some "send mail as" email addresses from Gmail's settings on desktop / web, but they are still in the drop down menu in Gmail Android.

These are email addresses from jobs I haven't had for 5+ years.

How do I remove them? There over a dozen now on the drop down menu and more than half are obsolete / dead.

Help?!?

Thanks...

Re: Gmail android problem

Have you tried deleting the relevant Gmail account from the Android app and then logging back in to it?

Your suggestion led to the solution. Realized that the old 'send from' accounts were associated with a different Google account than I was looking at (in settings).

Removed them from associated account and they are gone on gmail Android app without having to remove Google account from device.

NOTE: Had to clear Gmail app data for that to happen ...

Thanks!
