    I have a domain hosted with 1 and 1 and an email address at that custom domain. Currently, I have those emails automatically forwarded to my gmail address, so I get the messages in my GMail inbox already. However, I would like to be able to send emails from this address (instead of my GMail address). Is there a way to setup the built in email app to ONLY send emails, and not receive any? On my desktop computer, I just put in a fake POP3 server address to get this behavior. On the Droid, as far as I can tell, the setup wizard won't let you continue unless the incoming sever is valid.

    On the addy that you only want to send from, could you just set up a filter?

    Doesn't matter. Set up the incoming server as if you are actually receiving mail there. Then... nothing. You've already got your mail forwarding to Google. That's not going to change.

    The emails are forwarded but also get delivered to the server mailbox. If I set it up as you suggest, I will get duplicates in the Gmail/Email apps.

    My server allows deletion upon forwarding. You may have the same feature available with your host. If not, I can see the problem...!
