  1. I am new to Galaxy and Gmail. I have an ipad, galaxy s4 mini and a gmail account. I have a web site hosted by a company. The service comes with email forwarding, which means I have an email address "[email protected]", which has been setup to forward emails to "[email protected]". [email protected] has been set up with an additional "Send As" address of "[email protected]". On the ipad, I have managed to set up an email account "[email protected]". I set it up manually as an IMAP account with: - Incoming Server "imap.gmail.com", user "[email protected]", and - Outgoing Server "smtp.gmail.com", same user. With this setup, if I Reply to emails sent to "[email protected]", the recipient sees them as coming from "[email protected]", rather than "[email protected]". On the Galaxy S4, I can't seem to get this set up. I have tried the same "Manual" set up of an email account on the s4. But if I Reply to an email that has been sent to "[email protected]", the Reply is received with the Sender set to "[email protected]". I've seen some posts about using "Gmail" client to get access to gmail alias, I'm not sure if the "email" on the s4 is that client. I'd rather just use the email client as I have a couple of other accounts set up in there working ok. On the s4 I can set up a "google" account, which includes sync with gmail. Not sure if I need that and the email account (I have set up both, but it makes no difference).
