    I've got a single IMAP account for one of my domains, but I have an alias set up for another account name at the same domain. For example:

    IMAP account: me@example.com
    ALIAS: sales@example.com

    So mail addressed to either address winds up in the "me@example.com" inbox.

    The problem is when I get an email addressed to "sales@example.com" I need to reply using that return address. This is easy to do in Thunderbird, I set up a new account with the correct "from" information, put in dummy info for the POP server, set it to never check for email and then configure the outgoing SMTP settings.

    I don't see any way to do this using the email client on the EVO. It throws an error if it can't reach the POP server and won't let me set up the account.

    I know this type of scenario is pretty common, so surely there's some way to do this?
