Hi

Does anyone know if it is possible to run Gmail on my e-mail account connected to my own domain?


Thanks

I know you can have gmail "collect" your mail from any pop3 account, if that's what you are looking for.

There is a tutorial on this at http://blog.otherinbox.com/2008/09/why-not-use-gma.html  (I am not sure how accurate this is thought)

At this time I wasn't able to see any tutorials done by gmail/google however, maybe someone else knows of one?

You can either have gmail pop your email account hosted here so you can read the email through gmail or you can use Gmail/Google Apps to host email for your domain while the domain itself is hosted here.

Popping outside accounts into gmail is setup under Settings/Accounts in your gmail account. See http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&ctx=mail&answer=21288

To have gmail actually host your domain's email accounts see: http://www.google.com/apps/intl/en/business/editions.html The Standard version works just fine.

I use Yahoo myself and just forward all email from my domain to my yahoo account. I set this up in cPanel.

Then in Yahoo I added my email domain as an account (you can do this in gmail and hotmail as well) so I am able to send out with myname@mydomain.com. The last thing I did was to set my reply to and default address to my personal domain.

I repeated this step with 8 domains and now use my single Yahoo account to send and receive email from all my domains. I just pick the domain I want to send out with from my drop down list and off I go.

I have set a few people up on live mail with this and the procedure is pretty well identical, so I assume it is no different for gmail.

How about Google apps:
