If you send email from your smartphone or tablet, please make sure you use the Gmail app for IOS or Android.  Once you have installed the Gmail app on your mobile device you may setup your account using your original email account (not the alias) credentials.  The alias will automatically be set as the default account once the account is setup if the steps above have been completed.
