How to use domain email with Gmail for free

For people to contact your website by email, an email domain will create a more professional look. And if your business has the money to use Gmail or Outlook’s paid email service, that’s great. If you don’t have the money or you just need a domain email to contact a few partners, this article will show you a way to use domain email with Gmail completely free.

To do this you need to have a normal Gmail account, later still log into Gmail with this account but you will send and receive mail with domain email. And you need to know how to access the Cpanel management of the hosting you are using.

Create domain email on hosting

Most providers support creating domain email and using email services included with Hosting. To create an email domain name you need to go to the Cpanel management page. Then scroll to the Email section and click on Email Accounts.

If you do not know where it is, please contact the technical department because each vendor has a different Cpanel management interface.

In the Email Accounts section, click the Add Email Account tab and fill in the email information to create. Here is an example of Lucid Gen.

Please note down the email password for later use.

Once connected, you should choose the added domain email as the default to send mail. As for the place to reply to the message, you should choose Reply from the address the message was sent to. The reason is that for any email to receive the message, that email will reply, and by default, it will compose a message with a domain email.

The installation part will be a little different at the port of 995. Hieu recommends that you install as below. The first check is to connect securely over SSL. The second checkmark is so that the messages that Gmail receives will be labeled with a label so that you can easily distinguish which messages are from the email domain and the entire Gmail account in use.

After clicking Save Changes you may have to verify the email again with the Code sent to the email domain, see in the Email of Cpanel.

And this is the result, Gmail has automatically taken all mail of the email domain (it also deletes that message in Cpanel). There is a rolling sticker that helps you distinguish which messages are sent to your email domain.

Epilogue

Using domain email with Gmail completely free will send and receive 2-5 minutes later, but for free, you have to accept it. In the past, Lucid Gen also used this method, but later on, I also invested a bit to use Google Workspace.
