I've been managing my crazybob.org email from my Gmail account for some time. I was always able to set the reply-to field to crazybob at crazybob.org, but my emails still said they were from my Gmail account. Not anymore. Gmail now allows you to change your from address. Click "Settings" and then "Accounts" to add new addresses. The best part is you can have multiple from addresses. When you compose an email, you can choose a from address from a dropdown list. I've needed this desperately for some time. In the past, I used to create custom email addresses each time I signed up for something. Though gmail already supported additional addresses (for example crazyboblee+foo at gmail.com) my emails would still say they were from my gmail address and people would still know what my real email address is (just drop the +foo). No more. Now I can create custom addresses (for example foo at crazybob.org) and still send to mailing lists.
