Using an alias email with GMail in iOS 10 (iPad and iPhone)

A relative using an iPad (iOS 10) wanted to use an alias e-mail with his GMail account but iOS 10 appears to have removed the functionality which is still available in macOS. A solution is suggested at on the Apple discussions pages
(Creating email alias in iOS 10 no longer possible ) but here I give step-by-step details (I don't have an Apple ID so I couldn't post this in the Apple discussions forum)

Preliminaries: I'm assuming the user has a gmail address user.name@gmail.com with password pwd1 and 2-step-authentication enabled in GMail (have your mobile with you!) The user wants the sent e-mails to appear to come from initials@othermail.com

The process involves setting up the GMail account twice on the iPad:
  1. once using the iPad built-in GMail setup, for Calendar, Contacts
  2. once using the iPad Other mail service setup, for Mail
1. In Settings go to Mail, add an Account; select GMail and follow the prompts... this sets up Mail to use GMail mail, calendars and contacts (and optionally to stored Apple Notes on GMail) for user.name@gmail.com. Later on we will switch off mail as it will be duplicated by the following IMAP account.
2. In Settings go to Mail, add an Account; this time select Other as the mail provider:
a) Fill in the dialog entries:
Name: the user's name;
: initials@othermail.com
Password: get this password from Google using App password feature (Sign in using App Passwords -- note you will need your mobile; this is a 16-character password) and write it down as you will need it again later;
Description: you can call this GMail mail only for now
b) Click Next and enter the following information
Name: should be prepopulated as above
Email: should be prepopulated as above initials@othermail.com
should be prepopulated as above GMail mail only
Incoming mail server (as per Read Gmail messages on other email clients using IMAP):
Host name: imap.gmail.com
Username: user.name
: the 16-character password generated by GMail App password above
Outgoing mail server (as per Read Gmail messages on other email clients using IMAP):
Host name: smtp.gmail.com
Username: user.name
the 16-character password generated by GMail App password above
Use SSL: yes
Authentication: password
Server port: 587

After entering all this information, Mail should connect to GMail and verify the credentials; if correct, it will show blue ticks against the Email, Incoming and Outgoing details. If not then it will display a message saying it could not use the credentials.

After doing this, you should have two accounts (in addition to a possible iCloud email account): GMail and GMail mail only; GMail handles Contacts, Calendars and GMail mail only for Mail only. You can check this and then rename GMail mail only to GMail as Mail accepts two accounts with the same name.

Now if you want to write an e-mail which appears to come from initials@othermail.com you can select that as the From address: either in the e-mail itself if you have multiple e-mail accounts, or in the Composing settings of Mail.

Test this by sending a couple of e-mails.

Note: if you have an iCloud account, when that is the current inbox in Mail, new emails will be sent with the iCloud. When the GMail account is the current inbox in Mail, the new emails should be sent with initials@othermail.com if set up that way.

HTH someone... until the next iOS or GMail change breaks something else ;-o

You will need to ensure that you have enabled Desktop & Documents:

From your Mac, go to the Apple menu > System Preferences > iCloud.
  1. Make sure that iCloud Drive is turned on.
  2. Next to iCloud Drive, click Options.
  3. Choose Desktop & Documents Folders.
  4. Click Done.

I hope you found out how this works already. If not here's what Apple wrote about it: (From https://support.apple.com/de-de/HT203036 )
Turn off Private Browsing On an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, open Safari, then tap the icon for tab-overview (two overlapping pages). Tap Private to turn private browsing off.
If you're using iOS 7 or earlier on an iPad, open Safari, tap + to open a new tab, then tap Private.

Try using Firefox on the iPad. In its settings, you can have it block pop up windows. You can also try using its private tab feature.
