A few months ago annoying “on behalf of” text issue has fixed. Basically, this text appears in the headers when someone sent an email from the combined Gmail address. This text steered multiple ways from using Gmail to sending from an alternate address. It results in the issue, but Gmail has offered the option to remove the “on behalf of” indicator. This message means that you can now send emails from various different addresses through a specific hub in Gmail. You can get rid of “On Behalf Of” headers in Gmail and for that, move ahead.
Ways for “On Behalf” Removal in Gmail
Removal of “on behalf of” and the email address from messages, set up Gmail to send mail through the alternate email address server. To do so,
- First of all, select the Settings icon in Gmail and choose to See all settings appears in the drop-down menu
- Go to the Accounts and Import tab and click on Edit Info under the Send mail as heading
- Choose Next Step and choose the button next to option “Send through SMTP Server”
- Enter the email user name that appears next to Username and enter the account password in the required box
- Check if SMTP port is entered properly with TLS, 587 is the typical port without 465, and choose the option Save Changes
With the help of these settings, Gmail uses another email address server. Although Gmail is no longer the initiating domain, there is no more annoying “On behalf of” text
Importance of this header
Gmail will make the users capable to enter the email address they like as “From” sender address from every campaign. Well, it also means that the email which you send will be sent from a different domain than the listed domain in the custom from email address. If you get to know that it is quite important to have “On Behalf Of” text then, request access to the same.
