Gmail is one of the most popular and easy to use email services around. Most of us can navigate our Gmail inboxes with ease.

So how can we get the benefits of the Gmail platform to any email account?

Watch the video below to know more,

 

  1. First, we will need to log in to an existing Gmail account.
  2. Next, select the ‘Settings’ drop-down
  3. Click on ‘See all settings’ to open up the Settings page.
  4. Next, click on the ‘Accounts and Import’ tab.
  5. Locate the ‘Check mail from other accounts’ setting and click ‘Add a mail account’. Once you click on ‘Add a mail account’, a pop-up window will open. Here, you will need to enter the email address you want to add and click on Next.
  6. You can either link your email account with Gmailify or Import your emails from your account. Select the ‘import your emails from your account’ option and click ‘Next’
  7. In the username, the field adds your entire email address as the username. Type in your password.
  8. Next, you will have to enter your POP server. Let’s first understand what is the difference between POP and IMAP.
    1. POP3: Configuring emails using POP, you can only access the emails in one device and there won’t be any email backup kept in our server. if in case you lose your emails, we won’t be able to provide any backup.
    2. IMAP: Configuring emails using IMAP, you can access your emails across multiple devices and a copy will be kept on our server. If you lose any emails, we can restore the emails from our backup.

While entering your POP Server, what you use will vary depending on if you choose to use the “Always use a secure connection” option

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

If you choose “With SSL”: This will be your server’s hostname. Also, make sure the port is changed to 995. To get your server hostname, log in to your Bluehost panel. Go to Advanced. next – select the “Email account” option. This will take you to your email accounts page which has all your email accounts listed. Click on the “Connect” device button for the email account you are trying to configure. On this page, you will find all your server details under “Mail Client Manual Settings”.

9. Click on ‘Add account’, this finishes one half of your configuration. You can now view emails received on your email address on Gmail.

The second half is the ability to send emails from your email account using Gmail. If you want to use Gmail to send out emails too, then select the ‘Yes, I want to be able to send mail as [email protected]’ option and click ‘Next’

1. Choose an alias and click ‘Next Step’
2. This will take us to the next step of configuring your mail to be sent through your SMTP servers.
Enter the SMTP Server.

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

With SSL: This will be your server’s hostname. Also, make sure the port is changed to 995. To get your server hostname, log in to your Bluehost panel. Go to Advanced. next – select the “Email account” option. This will take you to your email accounts page which has all your email accounts listed. Click on the “Connect” device button for the email account you are trying to configure. On this page, you will find all your server details under “Mail Client Manual Settings”.

a. In the Username field, enter your full email id as your username.
b. In the Password field enter the password for your email account
c. Then, from the two options on the screen, you can select either
Secured connection using TLS
Or
Secured connection using SSL

Choose Port 25 (Non SSL) or 465 (SSL).

3. Click on ‘Add account’. This will lead us to the last step. As a security measure, Gmail will send a verification code to your email address. Enter the verification code and click ‘Verify’.

And that’s it! With these steps, you have successfully configured your email address to Gmail.
