Setting up your email in an existing Gmail account

If you currently use Gmail, you can add another email account to your inbox so everything comes in at one place.

 

Go to your Gmail account
Click the gear icon in the top right, then choose Settings
Click on the Accounts and Import link to switch to those settings (defaults to the General section)
Next to the bolded item on the left called Check mail from other accounts (using POP3), click on the link for Add a POP3 mail account you own
Enter your email address, click Next
Username: email@domain.com (make sure it is your FULL email address or it will fail)
Password: Your password
POP Server is: mail.domain.com
Port: 110
Click the box that says: Label incoming messages as email@domain.com
Click Add Account

If your information and settings were correct, it will now have a green checkmark at the top and say your account is setup.

Now the box should be circled with: Yes, I want to be able to send mail as your-email@domain.com, click Next Step
It should auto fill your name (if not add it), then click the box that says Treat As An Alias to turn off, click Next Step
Send through Gmail... should be on by default, click Next Step
It will then tell you that it needs to be verified. Click the button to Send Verification

Now you will need to get a confirmation code Google will send. You can use webmail by going to: domain.com/webmail
Enter your email address and password
Click on SquirrelMail if given the option
Look for an email from Google, open it, and inside it will give you the Confirmation Code
Copy the code, then enter it in the space provided by Gmail (should be a pop-up window)

Once you enter the code, you will be verified.

If you have mail in your account already, you will see mail start to appear in your inbox. It would also be good to do a test by sending an email to yourself and making sure you receive it.
