I like working from my main gmail account for everything. My company uses google apps. I've enabled my gmail to send emails on behalf of my work email, and it does this, but in the mailed-by field it has my gmail address. I think this looks unprofessional to recipients, so I want to be able to send email without this field showing Does anyone know how to do that?

Thanks in advance.

You can add the Google Apps serve as "external" smtp server. Follow the steps in this document and follow the "If you choose to send mail through another domain's SMTP servers" path.
