Remove "On behalf of Gmail" from outgoing Gmail Email

I use Google's Gmail as my central email account where I have all my email from various accounts sent to. This has worked great with just one minor problem. When you sent email from Gmail using another email account then Gmail added "sent on behalf of Gmail" to your outgoing email address. So the sender always knew you sent the email through a Gmail account.

Well there is now a solution, thanks to a recently added "send mail as" features to Gmail by Google.

Follow the steps below to eliminate the "on behalf of Gmail" from outgoing emails sent from your Gmail account...

1) On your gmail email page, click on the "Settings" link in the upper right hand corner of the Gmail inbox page.

2) Once in settings, click on the "Accounts and Import" tab.

3) Go to the "Send mail as" section and click on the "Send mail from another address" button.

4) A new window will pop up. Enter the name you wish to see on your outgoing emails and the email address that you wish to use for your "reply-to" address.

5) Click the "next step" button and a new window will open giving you a couple of options for how you want Gmail to have your mail sent out.  To have your email appear as though they were sent from your preferred email address with out the "on behalf of Gmail" select the second option "Send through "*****.***" SMTP servers".

6) If you selected the second option then a few more boxes will appear. This is where you have to enter your emails outgoing server information, and the username and password of the email address that you wish to send mail as (not your gmail username and password). If needed you may have to select the "always use a secure connection (SSL) when sending mail, but this depends on your email provider.

7) Click "Add account" and a final dialog box will appear asking you to enter a verification code that was sent to your email. Simply log into your other email account and copy and paste the code from the verification email into the the "verify" box, click verify and your done.

The copied slides will now be pasted into your new merged presentation, but if the slides have different templates
