There exists a cloud service named ChooseFrom 365 that allows you to send as any address.

It seems like sending emails from an outlook alias is now easily done in the latest outlook mail application. All you have to do is select the 'from' setting while composing an email and you can easily toggle between your main and alias accounts.

Hello! It did not work for me. I have a primary account set in my Outlook 2010. Then, I'd like to send e-mails from my another alias, linked to this primary account. There's no way, you'll be just able to send email from your alias in the web ( I added a new account as POP3/SMTP in Outlook 2010 with my "alias", and the connexion was ok, I could select my alias in the FROM list. But when I sent an email for myself as a test, in the sender's field was written my MAIN ACCOUNT. I tried a lot, but now I gave up hahaha. There's another way to send emails from an alias using Outlook 2010?
