In my post, I show you set by step how to set up a domain email with Gmail. Once set up, you can use Gmail to send and receive emails using your domain name email.
When I started blogging I used a generic Gmail email address for business, then I learned how to set up and use a domain email account. It is easy to connect your Gmail account to your domain email.
If you haven’t set up a domain email yet, check out my ‘How to create an email address with your domain name.‘ post.
Let’s get started.
Go to your domain email account in your Cpanel
First, go to your hosting Cpanel and search for the ‘Email’ section.
In ‘Email’ select ‘Email Accounts’.
On the right of your domain email address, select ‘Connect devices’.
On this page, search for ‘Secure SSL/TLS Settings (Recommended)’.
This is the information you need to connect your Gmail account. Let’s go to your Gmail email account next.
Go to your Gmail email account
Configure sending emails
On the right, select the ‘Settings’ icon.
From the menu, select ‘Settings’.
From the menu, select ‘Accounts and import’.
Scroll down to ‘Send Email as’ and select ‘Add another email address’.
In the popup, enter a display name and the domain name email address, then select ‘Next Step’.
Next, we will configure outgoing mail. Therefore, we need to be careful to enter the correct information on the next page.
Take the information from the ‘Secure SSL/TLS Settings (Recommended)’ I showed you earlier in this post.
We need the ‘Outgoing Server’ information and username.
In the first box, ‘SMTP server’, enter the text from 1.
For ‘Username’, use the ‘Username’ from 2.
For ‘Password’, use the password set for that email account.
Lastly ‘Port’, use the port information from 3.
Select ‘Secured connection using SSL’, then click on ‘Add account’. Then you get this popup.
The next step is to confirm verification, to do that, go to your domain email address and click on the link in the email.
Finally, select ‘Confirm’.
Now you can send email from your Gmail account.
Next, let’s configure Gmail to receive emails from your domain email account.
Configure receiving emails
To start, return to your Gmail account and go to the ‘Accounts and Import’ tab. Scroll down to ‘Check mail from other accounts’, select ‘Add a mail account’.
In the popup, enter your domain name email address and select ‘Next’.
On the next page, select ‘Import emails from my other account (POP 3)’, then select ‘Next’.
Next, we need the information from our domain email account. This time we are configuring receiving email.
We are interested in the incoming server data.
For username, take the text from 1.
Use the password set for the domain email account.
For ‘POP Server’, use the data from 3.
Finally, for port take the information from 4.
Tick the ‘Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail’, and ‘Label incoming messages’ boxes. Finally, select ‘Add Account’.
That’s it, you’ve completed configuration.
When replying to a message setting
Once set up, there is one more setting to look at. In your Gmail settings, you can set Gmail to ‘Reply from the same message the message was sent’ or ‘Always reply from the default address’.
