'send mail as' from Gmail

I am using a gmail address that is set up using my domain name and would like to use my blueyonder email address as the 'sent from'.

When I try to set this up in Gmail I get the following message

Add another email address that you own
Functionality not enabled.
You must send emails through SMTP servers when you send as However, this functionality is not available for your account. Please contact your domain administrator for more information.


Can anyone help with this please?

many thanks!

Re: 'send mail as' from Gmail


I believe I found the instructions to set this up...

How do I allow or disallow use of an outbound gateway?
By default, users cannot use an outbound gateway. The G Suite mail servers deliver all outgoing mail, including mail that uses alternate From addresses.
To allow users to use an outbound gateway:
    Sign in to your Google Admin console.
    Sign in using an administrator account, not your current account
    From the Admin console Home page, go to AppsDJ_Shadow1966_0-1596010582062.png


    G SuiteDJ_Shadow1966_1-1596010582063.png


    Settings for GmailDJ_Shadow1966_2-1596010582063.png


    End User Access.
    Tip: To see Advanced settings, scroll to the bottom of the Gmail page.
  3. In the Allow per-user outbound gateways section, select Allow users to send mail through an external SMTP server when configuring a "from" address hosted outside your email domains.

    When this check box is selected, users who associate additional email addresses with their accounts can enter connection information for an alternate SMTP server. Learn more about the required steps for the user.
    When the check box is not selected, users cannot specify an SMTP server for the additional address.
  4. At the bottom, click Save.
It can take up to an hour for changes to propagate to user accounts.
Once this option is enabled, users can configure their alternate email addresses to use an outbound gateway. Each user must configure this option individually. Learn more about how the user does it.
