How to configure custom domain email to use in Gmail

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 2: Click "Email Accounts" under Email section
