    I'm on the new Samsung Epic which is still on Android 2.1 so I can't download the new gmail, but does anybody know...

    Will the new client support selecting from your multiple configured From addresses like the browser client does?

    Perhaps I missed it, but my version does not allow for this. It's a big deal I think.

    Yes will the Gmail app support multiple From accounts? Or the one which is on Android 2.2 is supporting it?

    Or is there any workarounds?

    It's even worse than I thought.

    I have a google account that I use to get all my personal and business emails. Basically three 3 mail accounts in one - two under a non gmail domain, but not using their own smtp. They have this wonderful web client feature that allows you to send email by a those secondary emails as a default and also to select them on the fly. All of this worked seamlessly on my blackberry curve.

    On the android, i can't select which one to default as or which one on the fly. It apparently must be the primary gmail account. :( and it's not observing anything in my google account settings regarding send as settings.

    Not sure what's going on.. but just yesterday I was able to at least create google email push account on my android using Exchage via these steps below. I now just get an endless loading message, even if I use the main gmail account?


    ***8226;Gmail Exchange ActiveSync server address: m.google.com
    ***8226;Gmail Exchange ActiveSync domain: google
    ***8226;Gmail Exchange ActiveSync user name: Your full Gmail address (e.g. me@gmail.com)
    ***8226;Gmail Exchange ActiveSync password: Your Gmail password
    ***8226;Gmail Exchange ActiveSync TLS/SSL required: yes
    You can also access Gmail using POP3 or IMAP, and send using SMTP.


    So I had to let it recreate a gmail mail account on the EPIC for me and it used SMTP. so I have that 30 minute Get delay.

    What's changed? The only thing I did was make one of those non gmail accounts my default send as email from the web client. Doubt that's why. I still think it's not going to let me create an external email account using Exchage as follows google\me@mydomain.com

    I'd like to start a seperate thread just for that.
