GMail: Replies to Myself

I’ve had an issue with one of my email addresses recently.  When I reply to all with my GMail address, it’s smart and does not send the email back to myself.  On the other hand, when I sent an email from another address, it would include that address in the reply list.  It finally got annoying enough to find a problem…

I found that the email address that was doing it was in fact “Not an alias”:

GMail Account Settings

To fix it, I clicked the “edit info” link.

Editing Email Address Settings


This opened a new window.  I checked the “Treat as an alias” option.

Email Setting


Then, I clicked “Next Step” and proceeded to save the change.  After that, when I reply, my address doesn’t get included.

One small annoyance gone!
