If you’re like me, you are probably dumbfounded as to why EVERY web email provider hasn’t copied Gmail‘s interface. And, if you’re like me, you want to use your domain email account for all things dealing with your site. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to integrate the two so that you can use your domain email with your regular Gmail account?
You can, and it’s super easy. Google has an extensive how to, but here are the highlights…
- Forward your domain email address to your Gmail address.
- Log in to your Gmail address and go to “Settings”, “Accounts”
- The very first option is “Send mail as”. Add the account for your domain address. You can add as many as you’d like, and you can also set any address you choose as your default.
- Google will send a confirmation message to the address (which you’ve forwarded to you Gmail address). Confirm the message, and you are set!
- The next time someone emails you at your domain address, perhaps through your “Contact” form, the message will show up at your Gmail account, and you can even reply to them using the domain address instead of your Gmail account.
Now you can control multiple accounts in one place without compromising on the professional feel you give your readers by corresponding with them through your domain account. Unlimited storage is nice too!
