Let’s say you have an email address like email@example.com. And you are using webmail (webmail.somedomain.com) or Outlook to manage your emails. This article will teach you how you can use Gmail to manage your ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ email address. You’ll need to have a personal Gmail account. At the end of this tutorial you’ll have something like below in your Gmail account.
So using your personal Gmail account you’ll be able to send mail from email@example.com as well as receive all emails for firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that emails will though be actually sent and received through your hosting’s SMTP server.
Below are the steps:
Step 1: Login to your Gmail Account.
Step 2: Click on the Settings Cog icon and go to Setting in the drop down.
Step 3: Click on “Accounts and Imports” Tab
Step 4: Click on “Add a POP3 mail account you own”
Step 5: Enter the email address you wish to configure and Click on Next
Step 6: Enter the email setting
Click on “Add Account”.
Step 7: Select “Yes, I want to be able to send mail as XXXX”. Click on Next
