Gmail Setup

To send and receive emails from your Domain to your Email Account in Gmail, open Gmail in your browser and click the settings (gear) icon in the top right of the screen. Then Another Settings Button appears, click that.

Click the Accounts and Imports tab and under the Check mail from other accounts option, click the Add a mail account link.

In the “Add a mail account” window, enter the email address from your Domain Name hosting account and click next.

Then enter your email account credentials and server information:

  • Username – Default is your email address
  • Password – The password you created or the strong password generated when creating the Email Account
  • Pop Server – mail.goparel.host
  • Port – 995
  • And check the box always using a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail.
  • Make sure to uncheck the Leave a copy of the retrieved message on the server box to ensure your inbox does not use up all your server space unless you need to save them.
  • Click add account

You will then be asked to enter information about your other email address. Make sure to check the Treat as an alias box so that messages received from your hosting email account will appear in your Gmail inbox. Click Next Step when this is done.

Configure the send options:

  • SMTP Server – This is mail.goparel.host
  • Port – 587
  • Username – Default is your email address
  • Password – The password you created or the strong password generated when creating the Email Account

You should now be able to send and receive emails from the Gmail client.
