How to manage your other email accounts from one Gmail Account

I have many email addresses. Too many maybe, but I tend to have a lot of interests, and these interests tend to lead to ventures that in turn lead to email addresses. (Well, that’s my excuse and I am sticking with it). Yesterday though, I got tired of missing out on important emails and carrying an unreasonable number of devices to keep track of emails, so I decided to move all my emails to Google apps, so I could at least have better control of the volume (You will be surprised at the volume of spammy press releases that have no bearing with Techsuplex that gets here) and while looking that up, I came across this even better solution (it’s absolutely free), that lets you send and receive emails from all your other accounts from one Gmail account using your email as an alias and I thought to share it here:

Here is how to manage your other email accounts from one Gmail Account:

  1. Login to your Gmail Account.
  2. Choose Settings, from the Settings cog.
    Gmail Settings
  3. Click Accounts and Import.
  4. Click ‘Add a POP3 mail account you own”.
  5. Enter your Email address.
    Gmail Add a POP3 Account
  6. Click the Next button.
  7. Enter your full email address as the Username.
  8. Enter Password for your email account.
    Gmail Incoming Server
  9. Enter the POP Server. This will be your domain name proceeded by “mail.” in most cases,  but you should double check from your mail server.
  10. Choose any additional options you may want
  11. Click the Add Account button.

Outgoing Mail (SMTP)

  1. Choose ” Yes, I want to be able to send mail as john@example.com”
    Gmail Account Created
  2. Choose if you will use this address as an Alias.To learn more about Aliases in Gmail please see Googles Knowledge Base Article
    Gmail Alias
  3. Click the Add account button.
  4. Choose to send “Send through example.com SMTP server”
  5. Enter the SMTP Server. This will be your domain name proceeded by “mail, but like mentioned above, you should double check from your mail server.”
  6. Enter your full email address as the Username.
  7. Enter Password for your email account.
  8. Choose Port 25 (Non SSL) or 465 (SSL).
    Gmail Outgoing Server
That’s it! you will now be able to send and receive emails from the set up account.

...half genius, half unserious.
