How to configure custom domain email to use in Gmail
Posted on December 16, 2020
Do you have a domain name and have already created custom emails for your domain? You have been opening them on webmail, but for some reasons you may want to be using them in your gmail account? Maybe due to familiarity with Gmail. Well, Gmail allows you to link upto 5 domain emails to your gmail account.
With this configuration you are able to receive incoming emails as well as send emails from your domain email accounts via Gmail account. This is awesome as it allows you to manage up-to 5 emails from the same place.
In this post, I’will take you through the whole process of configuring your custom domain emails to your gmail account:
Step 1: Login to your cPanel dashboard
Step 2: Click "Email Accounts" under Email section
Step 3: Click on “Connect devices” on the email you want to connect to Gmail
Step 4: You will view configurations details for your email account. Save the configurations somewhere. You will require them.
Step 5: Login to your gmail account
Step 6: Click on the settings icon at the top right corner
Then select “See all settings”
Step 7: Click on “Accounts and Imports”
Here you will have to do two configurations:
i) Send emails with gmail
ii) Receive emails via gmail.
Sending emails via Gmail
Scroll down to section labeled “Send mail as”
Step 1: Click on “Add another email address”
Step 2: Enter the domain email address you wish to configure and the name that the recipients should see when you send them emails. Then click “Next Step”.
Step 3: Add configuration details
Here you will use the email configurations details I had requested you to save somewhere(SSL/TLS option is recommended):
- SMTP server – the outgoing server
- Username – Your domain email address
- Password – The password for the domain email account
- Port – The outgoing server SMTP port
Click “Add Account” button.
A confirmation code is sent to your domain email. You are required to use the code to complete the process.
Step 4: Login to your domain account using webmail and open the Gmail confirmation emailas shown below.
Step 5: Copy the code and paste it in gmail. Then click “Verify”.
The email will be configured to send emails via gmail and be listed in “Send mail as” section under “Accounts and Imports” tab of your Gmail account settings.
To send email from your domain email via Gmail, simply compose new email and select the sender email in “From” option.
Receiving your domain emails via Gmail
This option enables you to receive your domain emails in your Gmail account. So you don’t need to login to your webmail account in order to view the emails.
Step 1: While in “Accounts and Imports” tab of your Gmail account settings, scroll down to section labeled “Check mail from other accounts”. Then click on “Add a mail account” link.
Step 2: Add your domain email account
In the popup that opens, add your domain email account that you would like to read from. Then click “Next”.
Step 4: Click “Next”
Step 5: Enter configuration details for your email(that you had already saved)
- Username – This is your domain email address
- Password – Password for your domain email address
- POP server – Incoming server address
- Port – Incoming server port(mostly either 993 or 995)
You can check the checkboxes to:
Leave a copy of your retrieved message on your server.
Use secure connection(SSL)
Setting a label for your incoming emails. This will help you easily recognize from which domain/site the email has been retrieved from.
Then click “Add Account”.
Once successful, you will be able to receive the emails sent to this email via your Gmail account.
