Today’s post is a click by click tutorial to show you how to connect your cPanel domain based email to your Gmail account.
Having a email@example.com email will help you to look more professional in your business. It also is necessary if you’re using an email newsletter account like MailChimp to increase deliverability of your newsletters. But checking multiple email accounts is time-consuming and can be overwhelming.
We have too many accounts to deal with already, between our email, texts, Facebook messages, social media, voice mail, etc! So let’s streamline it all and have the emails in one place.
Here are the click by click steps to connect your domain email to Gmail:
First, log into both your webmail account and your Gmail account. Your webmail account should be accessible through yourdomain.com/webmail.
In Gmail click the gear in the top right corner and open up settings.
Then click on the tab labeled, “Accounts and Import”
Then click on, “Add an Account” under the “Check Mail from Other Accounts” section.
A new window should pop up. Enter your domain based email and click “Next.”
Check to import emails from your other account and click “Next.”
Enter all the information inside of the red circles and click “Add Account.” Be sure to use the correct user name, password, and server settings provided to you by your hosting company or Website designer. I like to label my incoming messages so I can sort through them more easily.
Click Yes you want to be able to send mail as yourdomain.com and click “Next.”
Enter your Name, check treat as an alias, and click “Next Step.”
Once again, you will need to add your server information, username, password, and port. Use the “recommended” security setting and click “Add Account.”
Next, you’ll be asked to enter a verification code. Leave this tab open and go to your Webmail tab.
You should receive an email from Gmail with your confirmation code inside of it.
Copy the code to your clipboard
Go back to your Gmail configuration tab and enter the code. Then click “Verify.”
You will need to go back to your Gmail settings and check that you want to “Reply from the same address the message was sent to.”
To send an email from your Gmail Account with your new email address, click the drop down arrow next to the Domain name to choose the email you’d like to use.
You should be all set!
If you have additional emails you can go through the same process. Gmail will let you add up to 5 emails.
Hope this helps! Enjoy being able to manage your emails all in one place!
