    I use a gmail account at work since outlook doesn't allow me to send large files and I do reporting weekly that is large. I have automation for most via Microsoft Power Automate but some folks still need the files vs. going to the SharePoint.

    I went into GMAIL, updated under the accounts tab the "send as" (after getting with IT the SSL setup, super easy) and once you do it sent me the confirmation email.

    Now I changed the settings in GMAIL to be my default reply, etc.

    Then created the rule in Outlook as listed..

    Now it sends me ALL of my mail and ALL of the CC etc.

    So I reply all and it sends it to all and "AS" my work normal email.


    Thank you!!
