Creating a 'Free' Gmail Account that looks like your domain

Sunday, 14 December 2014 02:00 Written by 
So I wound up using this trick recently for a client who was reluctant to give the $5.00 a month Gmail account a shot due to the cost involved. After thinking about it for a few minutes, it occurred to me how set things up so that its totally free!

The example I am about to provide is for setting up This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so that you can use Gmail, and send email from this address, but not pay anything!! Make sure this email box is already set up on your mail host before trying the following steps.

The first step is to go to https://accounts.google.com/SignUp to register yourself with a regular Gmail account. Put your information in and choose your username something like This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Make sure you put an email address you have access to and is NOT associated with your domain name in the 'Your current email address' field. For example, DO NOT USE This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.as the current emial addres. 

Once you hit 'Next Step' Google will send you a confirmation email which you will need to confirm before moving on.

After the new account is confirmed, you're going to want to set up the account so that it sends mail through This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. instead of This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Click on the little gear icon in the upper right corner, and go to 'Settings' then 'Accounts and Import'.

The third box down has 'Send Mail As', please click 'Add Another Email Address You Own'. Place your email server settings in the dialog box that opens, please refer to your own host for the correct settings. After you have set this account up, click 'Set as Default' so that it becomes the default email address your gmail account sends email from. After this your gmail account This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. will look like any mail it sends comes from This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The last step is to be able to check any messages sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. On the same page, under 'Accounts And Import' the 4th tab 'Check mail from other accounts (using POP3)', click 'Add a POP3 mail account you own'. Place your current mail settings in there. Make sure you check the 'Leave a copy of retrieved message on the server.'
