How to enable a different reply-to address for email sent through Gmail?

Please note, it is for a particular recipient, not in general for every email sent through Gmail.

    OK, this can be done, but it's a little awkward. In GMail, click on the cog and choose Settings. Now click the "accounts" tab and in the "Send mail as:" click "Add another email address you own" and follow the instructions on the screen. In addition to providing the "from" address you want to add, you will need to verify that you own that additional address by responding to the verification message sent to it.

    Once all this is done, you're good to go. Whenever you compose a message, click on the "From" address in the message you are writing and choose the alternate address.

      Thank you. 1) What you mentioned is for both - sending and receiving to different address ( like outlook ) from within Gmail. But query is for sending through Gmail address and receiving on ( say , outlook ). 2) Also , the query is for a particular email option , not generally for every email by default , as mentioned in question description

      Sorry, you misunderstood my answer. It it for sending only (you could enable receiving mail too, but I didn't cover that). GMail only allows you to send with a different "from" address if you can demonstrate you "own" that account, hence this setup. You cannot enable the option only on some messages. Of course, you don't have to use it just because it's there...
