Some complements about Gmail on your Xiaomi Mi 5
Like many e-mail clients, Gmail offers to retrieve e-mail from other providers using the POP3 protocol. This means that these letters will be readable in Gmail as if they were sent directly to the Gmail account.
These letters are then differentiated by affixing a label reflecting their provenance and allowing the user to see at a glance whether mail has been addressed to his personal Gmail address, his business address or any other email addresses.
Gmail also allows you to send your mail using another shipping address, if it is an address owned by the account holder.
The Gmail account address will appear by default in the message headers, which may be the case on your Xiaomi Mi 5. However, an SMTP configuration associated with a modification of the parameters makes it possible to use this other address as the main address.
