Configure my Hosting email accounts in Gmail

The configuration shown in this manual requires the installation of a TLS security certificate for your Hosting email

The (sample) data to be taken into account for the configuration of the e-mail account are the following:

  • Incoming mail server: mail.domain.com
  • IMAP port: 993
  • POP3 port: 995
  • Outgoing mail server: mail.domain.com
  • SMTP Port: 465
  • E-mail account
  • Password
  • Protocol: SSL/TLS

To view the connection data of your email account from SWPanel, you can check this manual

All configuration will be done from the GMail webmail.

First of all, to set up your Gmail account, you will need to log in to a browser and access gmail.com with your usual login credentials.

Two configurations will be made:

  • Configure GMail to send emails with your hosting account.
  • Configure GMail to view emails from your hosting account.

Configure GMail to send emails with your hosting account

You must access the settings menu of your GMail account by clicking on the gear button and then on "View all settings".

And then on "Add another email address" enter image description here

A new pop-up window will open. You must fill in the form fields:

  • name : how you want your name to be displayed when others receive mail from you.
  • e-mail address : the e-mail account you are setting up
  • treat it as an alias : disabled

Once you have indicated the fields, click on "Next step".

In this step you will have to configure the SMTP sending fields. We will use the data provided by SWPanel:

  • SMTP Server: indicates the server that will do the sending.
  • Port: 465
  • Username: the email address you are configuring.
  • Password: the one you entered when you created your email account.

Finally, click on "Add account".

Now it only remains to verify / confirm the configuration. To do this, an email is sent to the mailbox (of your hosting) that you are configuring. You can access Webmail to perform the verification.

You must click on the link that has been sent to you in order to finish the checkout.

Once you have clicked on the link, a new tab will open in your browser to confirm.

You must fill in the form:

  • Username: the e-mail address you are configuring
  • Password: the password you entered when you created the email account
  • POP server
  • Port: 995.
  • Always use a secure connection (SSL) to retrieve e-mail messages: Enabled.

Finally, click "Add account" to finish.

💡 By clicking the "Leave a copy of the retrieved message on the server" checkbox, you will keep your emails on the mail server, even if they are downloaded to Gmail. This way, you will always have access to them.
