We now need to go back to the previous tab in our cPanel and copy a few things


Step 13

We need to remember 4 things from here

1) Your Username: Mine = josh@optimizewebsitestutorials.com

2) Your Password: This is the same one you used to create the business email

3) Incoming Server: Mine = optimizewebsitestutorials.com

4) POP3 Port: 995
This is the connection we’ll be using

Now lets copy these back in on the Google Pop up


Step 14

As you can see from the image I copied the first one

Username: 

I entered the Password

POP server – That’s your incoming server

I changed Port to 995

I ticked yes to
Always use a secure connection
Label Incoming messages

1) Then click Add Account


Step 15

Congratulations you’ve completed that bit

Click Next


Step 16

This page will appear.

The white section is the name you can use that will be shown on the mail you send.

I used my name but from a business view I could have used Optimize Websites Tutorials or maybe support

Whichever you decide the next step is to click Next Step


Step 17

After clicking Next Step head back to your tab with the email cPanel and we need a few things below

Outgoing Server: Mine is optimizewebsitestutorials.com (the same as the incoming server)

Port 465

Armed with that information let’s head back to the Google Mail


Step 18

SMTP Server – This is your outgoing server. Copy the information from the previous step

Enter your password. The same as you have been doing before

Make sure Secured Connection using SSL is selected

Change Port to 465

Click Add Account


Step 19

A confirmation link will appear.

Click it to receive a confirmation code


Step 20

On the new email in the background you’ll get your confirmation code

Enter your Confirmation Code

Click Verify


Step 20

You’ve now set up your email !

2 things i like to change.

1) I make my default email that I send and receive coming from my business email. I click make default

2) I click reply from the same address the message was sent to.
You have a dropdown to select which one but you could forget and reply with the normal email


Step 21

Your email settings should look something like this.

You’re all set up now !
