How do I set up emails in Gmail?

To add an email address hosted with us to Gmail:

- Log in to Gmail
- Click the 'Settings' (cog) icon and then select 'Settings' from the drop-down menu
- Select 'Accounts and Import'
- Alongside 'Check mail from other accounts (using POP3)' select 'Add a POP3 mail account you own'
- Enter the email address to add and click 'Next Step'
- At the 'Add a mail account to your own' screen recomended settings are:

Username: [Full email address]
Password: [Email address password]
POP server: '[Incoming Mail Server: (SSL)' e.g. cpanel-123-xyz.hostingww.com]
Port: 995
'Leave a copy of retrieved message on the server'
'Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail'

- 'Add Account'

You will be asked if you would also like to be able to send mail on behalf of the address. If you wish to:

- Enter the name you would like to show on your outbound mail
- Deselect 'Treat as an alias' if you wish (more information here if you aren't sure: https://support.google.com/a/answer/1710338?ctx=gmail&hl=en&rd=1)
- 'Next Step'
- Recomended settings at the 'Send mail through your SMTP server' are:

SMTP Server: ['Outgoing Mail Server: (SSL)' e.g. cpanel-123-xyz.hostingww.com]
Port: 587
Username: [Full email address]
Password: [Email address password]
'Secured connection using TLS'

You will then be sent a verification email to the address you are trying to synchronize. After clicking the link in the email your account will be added for sending in Gmail.
