If you’re a fan of Google’s Gmail service, you may find it difficult to adjust to third party mail apps like Outlook or Apple Mail. Did you know you can check email for your domain inside of your existing Gmail account? Spend a few minutes setting up your email account inside of Google’s mail system and you can send and receive from your company email without switching apps.
To check your email address from Google mail service, follow these step-by-step instructions to add a POP account within your existing Gmail account.
Log in to your Gmail account and click the Settings icon in the upper right corner of the screen.
Click the “Accounts and Import” link and select “Add a POP3 mail account you own”.
Enter your email address and click Next Step to proceed.
Enter the server information for your domain and select any additional preferences, then click Add Account. IMPORTANT: Do not check the box labeled “Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail.” Your primary Gmail account is already encrypted by default.
Gmail will add your new POP account. When asked if you would like to send mail using your domain email, choose Yes and click the Next Step button to proceed.
Enter your name and click Next Step to proceed.
Enter the outgoing SMTP server information for your domain. Change the Port number to 25 and select “Unsecured connection”. Click Add Account to proceed.
Check your domain email account to retrieve the confirmation code. Enter the code in the field provided and click “Verify” to complete the setup process.
