Email Tool Alias?

Hopefully this is a quick one.


Is there a way for the email tool to send the email from an alias name of the email address? Instead of, it just says "Name" when person receives the email.

Hi @KevinHarrison 


Yes, but it's more determined on whether the SMTP server you're using allows this. If it does, you can type in whatever email in the "From:" field.

Thanks for the response. I don't think I was clear in the question. Is there a way for the email address to be hidden I guess. Example, lets say the email is When person receives email the from email will say Can I get it to say "Dallas Team Expert", use an alias?

I believe it'll only show an alias if it's a real email address where the SMTP server requires authentication.
