I've enabled Send Mail As. Can I send email from multiple Gmail addresses from my iOS device?

You can only use the default "Send mail as" email address that's configured in the Gmail web interface.

For example, if you want to send one email from, and a second email from from your iOS device, you would first need to change your default email address in your Gmail settings using a web browser. Learn more.
