How to receive email from any POP3 account from Gmail


Click the gear icon  at the top of any Gmail page, choose Mail settings and open the Accounts and Import tab.

In the Check mail using POP3 section, click Add POP3 email account.

Enter the full email address of the account you'd like to access, then click Next Step.

Gmail will populate sample settings, but we recommend checking with your other provider to learn the correct server name and port.

If you are hosting your website with us, Creative Designs, then your settings would be:

  • Email address: must be entered in full (eg. you@yourdomain.com)
  • Incoming server: mail.yourdomain.com
  • Incoming port: 110

Enter your Password.

Leave all other settings set to default (do not change).

Click Add Account.

Once your account has been added successfully, you'll have the option of setting it as a custom From Address. This allows you to compose messages in Gmail, but have them appear to be sent from your other email account. Click Yes to set up a custom From Address.

That's it, you can be receiving your professional email in minutes while taking advantage of all of Gmail's amazing features and user-friendly interface.
