cPanel Emails Through Gmail For Free

Get cPanel Emails Through Gmail (FOR FREE)

Do you find the cPanel email clients hard to use? Want to have both your personal and business emails in one place? What if I told you there was a way you could do all of those things without spending those precious first few pennies. Here we will run through how you can access and send emails from your cPanel addresses, literally, all your cPanel emails through Gmail. This how-to assumes you already have your email accounts setup in cPanel and an active Gmail account in which you want to access your new emails. n.b. – you may find that ‘managed’ Gmail accounts won’t let you add new mail accounts, if that’s the case you’ll have to sign up with for a new one. Let’s get started.

How to get cPanel emails through Gmail for free:

1. Log in to your Gmail account and click into the Settings menu (cog icon):


2. Head to the Accounts and Import tab.


3. Click on Add a mail account option in Check mail from other accounts section:


4. In the new pop-up window, enter the address of the cPanel email account and click Next:

5. Now we need to make some changes to the settings:

Username: your complete cPanel email address
Password: password for your email account
POP Server: server your account is hosted on
Port: 995 (you also need to check the option to ‘always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail.)
or
110 if you don’t want to use SSL – we’d recommend not doing that.

Confirm the check boxes are correct:

  • Leave a copy of retrieved messages on the server – TICKED
  • Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail – TICKED
  • Label incoming messages – UNTICKED
  • Archive incoming messages – UNTICKED
