How can I reply with my Throttle address to a message in my reading list?

I need to reply to a message, but I want to maintain the privacy Throttle affords me and not reveal my "real" email address. How can I reply with my Throttle address?

Hello M,

We don't currently have the functionality to allow you to reply directly from the website using your Throttle address. However, I can offer another option to accomplish this!

Assuming you use Gmail:

  1. Sign in to your Google Apps email. (Gmail account, in other words).
  2. Click the in the upper-right and select Settings along the top of any page, and select the Accounts and Import tab.
  3. Under Send mail as, click Add another email address.
  4. In the Email address field, enter your name and alternate email address.
  5. Click Next Step >> and then click Send Verification. Gmail will send a verification message to your other email address to confirm that you own it.
  6. Locate the message in your Throttle Reading List. Open it and either click the link contained in the message, or enter the confirmation code in the Accounts section of your Google Apps email settings.

I hope this helps! If not, I'll work with you to come up with another solution.

Have a good one,



Thank you Josh, that's helpful.


I just tried your solution and I am stuck on the step where Google asks for the SMTP server information. Any information on what to put in these fields?
