I meant I have used gmail's SMTP server to send from an email client
on a laptop before, the laptop connecting to the internet with
different internet connections depending on the country at the time.
The from address was not gmail's - I can't specifically remember now
but I think gmail may have added an extra header to indicate that it
was sent via gmail. No copying and pasting or anything. Download the
mail from your domain's mailbox, read it with whatever you want, reply
and send it via gmail's servers (from memory it was an authenticated,
encrypted connection to a non-standard SMTP port).
I didn't understand your suggestion at first as I didnt know one could
use gmail for this. I googled and have found this very easily.
"Set your POP client to route outbound mail to smtp.google.com with port
465 and SSL enabled and use your Gmail login credentials. "
and also here:
I'll try this at home tonight or when I get a chance.
This goes to show that making a post here can be so rewarding. Thanks Phil.
