Unhappy Using other accounts through Gmail app on Android

I use Gmail to get and send email from my work email addresses.

When I send email through Gmail on a web browser, it lets me pick which account I want to send email from.

Can this be done through the Gmail app on android? I have not seen an option for it.

I could use the email app on android to add my work accounts, but I would much rather keep everything on the Gmail app, mainly so I don't get multiple alerts when I get email.

Can anyone help with this?

Thanks in advance!

I dont think this will be possible due to the fact that your phone is tied to your gmail account, I'd be interested in knowing if it was possible so "bump"

It can do it on the internet browser version of gmail, so it has to be possible... just give us an option under the menu button, or let us long press on our reply address to change it.

I guess enough people have to mention it before it gets handled.

I know on Android 2.0 this is possible as it supports multiple accounts from the Gmail app , I'm not so sure on those running below 2.0 though

This isn't supported yet. People have been begging for it for a while. If you want it to be added, star the issue here: Issue 1664 - android - Gmail should allow choosing the From: address on an account that has multiple addresses - Project Hosting on Google Code.

Also, tell everyone you know to star it. Tweet it. Facebook it. I want this feature so bad. It's just plain silly that it isn't already there.

Note: Don't comment on the issue, just star it. We want to get the devs' attention, not annoy them.

If you set up each account with the Gmail app (only on 2.0), you can choose which account to send from, but if you have everything funneled into one gmail account, and set it up so that you can send "on behalf of" another address, you cannot send from that address on you Android.

Very cool, I will be sure to star that.

I should have mentioned that I'm using a Motorola DROID, Android 2.0.

I have one Gmail account, and I have 2 other non-gmail accounts which I handle through Gmail, so on a web browser, it's no biggie, it's just on the DROID that we're missing that functionality.

I'm happy to have an Android phone finally, so I'll be patient and wait for the update.
