  1. Hello Ravi,

    I have been using all my emails in one Gmail by using this method. I first came to know about it in 2011 I think, and since then I have been using this and its really great to get all email at one place.

    Nice post!

    1. Hey Atish,

      Webmail is quite slow and no one wants to login to another account to handle it. Gmail has many features to use. People should try to handle their all the email accounts using their Gmail account.
      Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to say a few words.
      Have a nice day.

  2. Hi Ravi,

    I appreciate this information, as it was something I wanted to do to secure my sender information on my autoresponder. Simply redirecting email back to Gmail gives a spam appearance and will hurt your autoresponder deliverability.

    I followed your instruction, but when I tried to “Add Account” for POP3, got this…
    Server returned error: “[AUTH] Authentication failed.”

    No idea what that means. Maybe I’m putting in the wrong info at Username… do you use your email name or your personal name?

    I’ll keep at it 🙂

    Thanks for the training, my friend. I’m not very techie and can use all the help you offer!


    1. Hey Donna,

      You have to fill the email address and the password you want to connect with the Gmail account. In the whole procedure, you won’t need to fill your personal name. Whenever you are asked to fill the username and the password, just fill the credentials of your email you have created with your domain name.

      If you want the details then after logging to the Webmail, you will see three services to choose. There will be many options below them showing the option to change the password and more. An option “Configure Mail client” will be there. Just click on that option and all the settings will be shown to you. You have to notice the manual settings.

      And one thing is important, before connecting your email, you have to remove any forwarder if you have added for that email.
      I hope it will work for you.

  3. I just want to say thank you so much!! it works very well for me. I thought I have to pay to connect webmail to gmail.
