I have been getting a number of requests from some of our clients that they like to connect their customized emails (e.g info@mywebsite.com) with Gmail, such that they can send and receive their emails from Gmail without having to use the boring webmail.

So I decided to do a video recording to show you exactly how to do that. I also documented the process in this post just in case you prefer to scan through the text.

 

Receiving Emails In Gmail

Pls, note that you will need email settings details from your Cpanel.

1. Login to your Gmail Account

2. In the top right-hand corner, click on the Settings cog icon and choose Settings

3. Click Accounts and Import

4. In front of ‘Check mail from other accounts’ option, click ‘Add a mail account’.

7. Enter your full email address as the Username

8. Enter Password for your email account

9. Enter the incoming POP Server. Choose the ‘Always use a secure connection (SSL)’ option. Make sure the port is changed to 995

10. Choose any additional options you may want

11. Click the ‘Add Account’ button

That’s it. You’re done with the first part. If all went well, you should be able to receive emails sent to your customized mail directly in Gmail.

If you’ve set up a forwarder, you should get the email in Gmail as well. Otherwise, log in to the email via webmail.
