My gmail address is john@mydomain.com  (changed for example)
In my settings tab inside Gmail, I set my name to be "True Believer"

When I email someone from my gmail account,  in their inbox, when my email comes in, it says from "True Believer"

NOw, in my VB.NET applicaiton, I have it configured to send email through my gmail account.  However, all email that is sent shows that its from "john"....the part right infront the @ sign.

how do I send email from VB.NET, through Gmail, and show the name of the sender to be "True Believer?"

I think you specify that in the to/from address like this:

"True Believer" <john@mydomain.com>
