Last Updated

To set up your new account on your Gmail account, first login to your existing Gmail account (here).

Go to the Gmail Dashboard & click on the Settings icon:

Click See all settings.

Click Forwarding and POP/IMAP. 

Ensure Enable POP for all mail is ticked.
Ensure Enable IMAP is ticked, and click Save changes at the bottom.

Click accounts and Import, and tap Add another email address (next to send mail).

Click next on this page.

Fill in the email address & click Next

Fill in the username with the email address field.
Fill in your email password in the password field.

The POP server is mail. your domain name. Here you can see we’ve used our example domain, dentons1.co.uk.
Ensure the Port is 995.
Ensure the first three tickboxes are checked.

Click Add Account.

Click yes & then next – you would like to send mail as well as receive.

Fill in the name you would like to send emails as. If you would not like to assign a name to this email account, just put the email account in full.

Click Next Step.

The SMTP server is mail. your domain name. Here you can see we’ve used our example domain, dentons1.co.uk.
Ensure the Port is 465.
Fill in the username as your email address
The password field with your email password
And ensure that SSL is ticked, not TLS.

Click Add Account.

Next, you need to verify the connection to Gmail.
Leave this screen open (above) & go to your webmail account to confirm the connection.
This link will be provided separately with your email details. The link will look like this:

www.mydomain.co.uk/webmail

Ours in this example would be www.dentons1.co.uk/webmail. 

Once you have logged in, please access this email which will have been sent to your account. 

You can either paste the confirmation code into the yellow popup box provided by gmail, or you can click the link (underlined in red) in the email to confirm the connection to your gmail account.

Once you have completed this step, your account has been added to gmail.
