Once you have set up your email alias (@byu.net or @byu.edu or @studentbody.byu.edu) in Email Alias Manager, you can set up your Gmail account to send messages from the BYU alias address. You may want to mask emails sent to people with a different alias for their Email account. Example: email@example.com wants emails sent out to have a From field as firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately there is no way to set Outlook to mask their sent emails, unless the account that they want to send from is another email account and they have been granted delegate access to send from that account.
Note: While it was common in the past to configure external mail systems to send on behalf of your address, modern spam filters consider this forgery and will often mark counterfeit email as spam, making it less likely recipients will see your email. Current email recommendations prefer that senders use the domain address from their mail provider, such as your actual @gmail.com address. Please avoid counterfeiting @byu.edu emails from non-BYU systems.
