Gmail send mail as – Functionality not enabled message

While I could RECEIVE email on multiple accounts using gmail’s business email (about $5/mo as of current date), I was unable to send email using different accounts (I was only allowed to send from ONE default account).  To make this (multiple accounts) work, I had to resort to these steps.


1. Went to and access with the Super Admin of the account.

2. Clicked on Google Apps > Gmail > Advanced Settings

3. Unchecked the option ‘Allow per-user outbound gateways’

4. Waited 24 hours (yes – that’s how long it took). Now, when I tried to add an additional SMTP (send email) account, it let me go through!
