Refer to my answer in your other question.

You setup a new account in your client, so this will be a bogus account. Just for sending via name2@MyDomain.com which also means.

If anyone replies to this email, their reply will bounce.

You're may be confused about aliases. Normally an alias is done inside a full MTA + IMAP4 type environment, where you can both send + receive email as name2@MyDomain.com which is very different.

I think you're saying you're using Thunderbird as your client.

I do this sort of thing all the time in Thunderbird. Just setup another Thunderbird account with name@MyDomain.com working, then change to your other email address + all will be well.

Super simple.
