Setting up your email with Gmail

by | Jun 29, 2016 | Tutorials | 0 comments

Did you know you can get any of your Gmail accounts to send receive email from your business’ email?

This is a great way to avoid having to use Outlook or Windows Mail if you prefer the Gmail interface instead or if you’d just rather not have to log out of your personal email to check your company’s.

Keep in mind, you could also set up a new Gmail account for the sole purpose of sending and receiving your company’s email from it!

Here’s a step-by-step guide on getting your company’s hosted email to route through your Gmail account…

1. Log into your Gmail account.

2. Go to the Gear at the top right and select Settings.

3 Click the Accounts tab.

4. Next to “Check mail from other accounts (using POP3),” click Add a POP3 mail account you own.

5. Enter the email address you wish to add and click Next Step.

6. Enter your POP3 information for your domains email address in the form.

The username will be the same as the email address you are adding and the password will be the same as the one you use to log in to that email.

The POP server will typically be mail.yourdomain.com

Please send us an email or give us a call if you need any help with this step.

Click Add Account.

7. You will see a message stating Your mail account has been added. You can set the email to send as well.

If you want to send through Gmail, select Yes and Click Next Step.

8. Enter your Name.
Click Next Step.

9. On the Send mail through your SMTP server page, fill in your SMTP Server. This will typically be mail.yourdomain.com

Your Username will be your full email address and Email Password will be the password you use to log in to that account.

Please send us an email or give us a call for any clarification on what these values are.

Then, click Add Account.

10. Now, Gmail will email a verification code to the address you just added. Check your domains email for a message Gmail sent you. Click the link in the email, or Enter the code into the text box and click Verify.

Now you will see your Domains email address in the Send Email As and the Check mail from other accounts section.

As stated earlier, please give us a call or send us an email if you need help with any part of this process.
