Many users prefer forwarding their mail to outside email accounts like their Gmail addresses, however, we recommend against using email forwarding to a Gmail address as when you use email forwarding, it will forward all mail including the SPAM messages, and may cause Gmail to flag your account. Gmail offers another more secure way to check mail from your email tied to your domain name. We have included the instructions below:

  • Log in to your Gmail Account.
  • Open the Settings by clicking the Gear icon in the top left-hand corner, then click See all settings.
  • Click Accounts and Import.
  • Scroll down, and under the Check mail from other accounts section, click Add a mail account.
  • Enter the email address.
  • For Username, enter the full email address.
  • Enter the password for the email account.
  • Enter the POP Server. This will vary depending on if you choose to use the Always use a secure connection (SSL) option.

Without SSL: This will be your domain name preceded by “mail.”

With SSL: This will be your domain name preceded by “mail.” Also, make sure the port is changed to 995.

  • Click the Add Account button.
  • Outgoing Mail (SMTP)
  • Choose ” Yes, I want to be able to send mail as admin@example.com.”
  • Choose if you will use this address as an Alias.
  • Click the Add account button.
  • Choose to send “Send through example.com SMTP server.”

Enter the SMTP Server.

  • Without SSL: This will be your domain name preceded by “mail.”

  • With SSL: This will be your domain name preceded by “mail.”

Enter your full email address as the Username.

Enter Password for your email account.
