Use MobileMe push on iPhone with alternate From address
Authored by: dbingham on Jul 24, '08 08:43:51AM
A word of warning on this if you are in a corporate environment. Gmail *does* allow you to set the From:, but it also sets a Sender: header. What that means is that people in Outlook (and other similar products) will see something like this:

a@gmail.com on behalf of a@default.com

Obviously, this might not be ideal in your situation. Another option is to sign up for a service that won't set the Sender: header. There are a number of such services out there. I use (but am in no way affiliated with) Fusemail (fusemail.com).

The moral of the story is that you don't have to use MobileMe's SMTP server. You can use any SMTP server you choose, while still taking advantage of the push capabilities for incoming mail.

Hope this helps someone.
