This could be assumed as the standard feature of Gmail which allows users to manage multiple accounts from the Gmail interface. You can avail the benefit of this feature if you already have an email account linked to the alternate address. In order to send mail from a distinct Gmail username first you will need to sign up for that address. Choose an option mentioned below for getting the method to add your other addresses to your Gmail account:

Additional information you need

It is necessary to provide authenticated SMTP support for you by your other email provider in case you want to use this option. Gmail will use TLS by default and SSL in case you enable it. Authenticated SMTP support is also offered by several email services that provide POP or IMAP support; you may find your SMTP server configuration instructions along with POP or IMAP information.

In case the address you would like to add is hosted by Google then your original address will still be included in your email header’s sender field in order to support your mail from being marked as spam. The sender field is not displayed by most of the email clients however few versions of Microsoft Outlook may display "From yourusername@gmail.com on behalf of customaddress@mydomain.com."
