Use Your Domain Name with Gmail/Hotmail/Yahoo


A few weeks ago I published a post where I advisable to avoid free email services like Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo! when sending out business emails, since it makes you look unprofessional. It looks like I struck a nerve there, cause the discussion that followed within the comments was pretty heated.

Most individuals agreed with me. Some, nonetheless, said that they stuck to using Gmail/Hotmail/Yahoo! since the interface and overall user experience was so a lot better when put next to the e-mail clients available with their domain name emails.

Guess what, you should use your personal domain name with Gmail/Hotmail/Yahoo. That’s, you may send and receive emails from an address like [email protected] from inside any of those free services, so problem solved. Here’s easy methods to do it.

To begin with for those who aren’t using Gmail you’re doing it flawed.

Jokes aside I’m going to clarify the method in Gmail (cause that’s my cliente of selection), but I’m pretty sure it is comparable on other services.

Step 1: Contained in the cPanel of your domain name create a forwarder to send all the e-mail received by your [email protected] account to your [email protected] account.

Step 2: Inside Gmail open the “Settings”, then go to “Accounts and import”, after which click on “Add one other email account you own”.

Step 3: Put your [email protected] email there, and follow the steps until Gmail says it can send you a confirmation code.

Step 4: That confirmation code should appear in your Gmail inbox (as you’re forwarding all email in your [email protected] account to Gmail already). Put that on the confirmation box and that’s it.

Easy huh?
