What can happen if you send with a custom from address in Outlook

Note that free editing of the From field is allowed in email standards. Depending on the outgoing e-mail (SMTP) server used for the default Outlook e-mail account and the address you use in the From field, a number of things can happen:

  • A server like Gmail allows you to send email from a custom address to Gmail if the address is configured in their own sending settings.

  • If the address is not configured to be sent to Gmail, Gmail will change the address in the “From” field to the address used for the account configured in Outlook. The address used in the From field in Outlook is stored in the title bar of X-Google-Original-From.

  • The outgoing mail server can send the message, but the recipient’s mail server can reject it because the server is not configured to send messages with the address in the “From” field. You will receive a notification of a delivery error by email.

What can you do if the message was not sent with a custom address of an address?

If you are having trouble delivering messages when using a different From address in Outlook, you have two options:

  • Set up an account in Outlook using the email account’s SMTP server and proper authentication.

  • Send with an address that you know works in Outlook.
