Facebook doesn't allow send mail as from a gmail account

Wednesday, August 17, 2011 at 4:41 PM
Below is a message I recieved when trying to My google apps gmail account "send mail as" feature with another email address you own - in this case Facebook's new integrated email address. This is the part where you generally have to input a code to Google letting them know you actually have access to this address. Here is what Facebook sent back: They are the ones that put the XXXX's by the ways to confirm the address in this returned email. Sketchy. Everything I redacted was replaced with "[redacted by JANE]."
