How to send a mail merge in Gmail from a non-Gmail address

If you have a non-Gmail address that you want to send a mail merge campaign from, you can still use Gmail to do so.

For example, one of my email addresses is ajay.goel@silicomm.com. I operate my own mail server for silicomm.com. Meaning, silicomm.com is NOT on G Suite, so ajay.goel@silicomm.com is NOT a Google account. However, I can still send a mail merge in Gmail from ajay.goel@silicomm.com.

Here’s how to create a mail merge from a non-Gmail address:

  1. Create a new Gmail account. For example, let’s say I create ajay.goel@gmail.com.
  2. Next, I set up ajay.goel@silicomm.com as an alias address in my new ajay.goel@gmail.com
    account.
    Here is the documentation from Google that explains how to do this: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/22370?hl=en

  3. Then, install the GMass Chrome extension from the GMass homepage.
  4. Then log in to the ajay.goel@gmail.com account and click any of the GMass buttons to link the account to GMass.
  5. Launch a Compose window, put in your addresses in the To field, set the Subject and the Message. Now be sure to change the From Address to the alias you set up in Gmail. In this example, set the From Address to ajay.goel@silicomm.com.
  6. Once your campaign looks how you like, just hit the GMass button. (You may need to subscribe if you’re sending to more than 50 recipients.)
