Do you have a domain name but are still using the same old email address? Do you have a pop account but use your host’s webmail to check your email? Maybe you just don’t know how to connect them after you register your domain?This tutorial will help you learn to back up your email into gmail’s email service, and also “send as” [email protected] If you already have a gmail account, you will be able to use both email addies from the same account. You can even add multiple email addresses from different domains. This tutorial is also useful for retaining your email when moving to a new server (if you don’t have any other way to transfer email over via server control panels). Hey, did I mention Gmail’s great spam blocking?

Note: Your settings may be different if your hosting account is not CPanel. If you use a different host, the settings may be different for logging into your email and also for your POP server address. You will need an email account already created on your server before continuing with this tutorial.

In cpanel, to get your mail settings you can log into>Configure Mail Client. The pop server address is typically

1. Create a GMail account

2. Log in and click on gar icon in the top right hand corner, then click on mail settings

3. Under Accounts and import, click on “Add Pop 3 Email Account”

4. Enter your email address.

5. Enter your email settings
Your username is your email address, and the pop server is I like to label my incoming messages with the email address, because I have multiple pop accounts set up in my gmail. If you want to retain a copy of your messages on the server, be sure this box is checked.6. Click on Add Account
7. Send Mail As
I just set up an account this morning and GMail prompted me to do this part when doing the steps above.

I typically use gmail for sending…

You will be prompted to “send verifvation” to the pop mail account.

8. Verify Email Address
Log into your web mail (usually and go through the verification
Stick around to the very end for some final tweaks!

Confirmation success!

9. Set default email address for composing new messages
In Settings>Accounts and Import, click on the “make default” link if you would like your newly composed messages to be your [email protected] email addy.
If you don’t want your default email changed, read on to find out how to choose which email account to send from when you compose new messages.

10. Compose email message and choose which email account to send it from

When composing a new message, there will be a little crop down arrow in the “From” field. If you click on it, your other email addresses will display in this section. Click on the email address you wish to send mail with and you’re good to go!

      Can it work with Blogger?

      @BeWit'nWise I have not tried this with blogger hosted domains. I think you get a free google apps account if you have purchased your domain with blogger. Here's a link to a tutorial for this:

          How do you achive this:

          „When composing a new message, there will be a little crop down arrow in the "From" field. If you click on it, your other email addresses will display in this section. Click on the email address you wish to send mail with and you're good to go!”

          … when you use an e-mail client, like Outlook or Thunderbird?

    9. Susan Smith July 18, 2013 2:39 pm

      Gabriel, any time you add a new account (whether pop or imap) to Outlook or Thunderbird you should get a drop down for additional emails. However, I've not found a solution to "send" mail through Outlook or Thunderbird as your domain address. So you could pick up mail, but when it sends, you'll be sending as the gmail address. I've tried this through IMAP.
