We all love our own personalized email address as much as we would like to have our own domains. Although, you can get a personalized email on your domain provided you find the perfect one. This was not easy until now, ever since ICANN has announced the launch of new top level domains you can be assured of getting your hands on one.
Getting a domain is another thing but when you do have one and you use email then the 80’s look of webmail is something no one likes to deal with. Many people forward these mails to their Gmail account or other personal email. However, you can only access the forwarded emails but cannot reply to those emails right from there. Well, actually you can!
With this cool trick you can use Gmail for not only receiving but also replying to those emails right from Gmail. Sounds great, doesn’t it? With a setting hidden deep within Gmail you can access multiple email accounts right within Gmail.
If you already have a personalized email then we can directly move over to setting it up in Gmail, if not then you can ask your web hosting company to help you get one.
Step 1. Login to your Gmail account and go to the Settings section.
Click on the Gear Icon in the Top Right and select Settings.
Step 2. Now check the Accounts tab and Click on Add a POP3 mail account you own
Here you will be asked to provide the email address of the account that you want to access using Gmail. Enter email address and go to the next step.
Step 3. Simply fill in all the details that are asked in the form. Note: You will need the setup information of your POP3 email. You can get this from your web hosting service provider.
When filling the form if you want to keep a copy of your email on your web server as well then select Leave a copy of retrieved message on the server.
Step 4. Next you will be asked about sending mails from the personalized email which you would obviously select. Here Uncheck the Treat me as in Alias option so that when you reply to emails you receive them from the same address.
Step 5. Once you have filled in all the required details you receive and email from Google asking for confirmation of the email address that you have added to Gmail.
Now you can compose mails and reply to the mail you receive on your personal email right from Gmail by choosing the account you want to send from.
So there you go, you can manage up to five personal email accounts using Gmail and save the time by getting it all in one place.
