    Yes, that’s possible. Follow these instructions: Send mail from a different address or alias

    Briefly:

    1. Sign in to Gmail on the web
    2. Go to Settings > Accounts > Send Mail As
    3. Enter the Group email address and verify it

    Postman remains configured with the mailbox email address, whereas the From: address, for example in Contact Form 7, should be configured to use the Group email address.

    Perhaps in a future version I will allow the user to maintain separate addresses for Sender (the mailbox) and From (the group email).

    I’ve added a new From field in the Postman configuration in 1.6.18.

    The Envelope Sender has to be a real user (eg. realuser@hendriks.ca)
    The Message Sender is set to the Group email (eg. group@hendriks.ca)

    Then check both “Prevent plugins from changing the From address” checkboxes.

    One thing I’ve found, is Google will not send a Group email message to the original sender if they are also in the group. So in the scenario above, if the recipient is group@hendriks.ca, realuser@hendriks.ca will not receive the message, though everyone else in the group will.
