If you’re looking to connect business email account or any other webmail account to your Gmail account, you’re at the right place. After this tutorial, you’ll be able to access mails of your business email (webmail) into your personal Gmail account that allows you to skim the messages in one window and act on those that require your attention without having to switch between a browser window. You can also use Gmail’s advanced search functionality to search for messages from both accounts, even if they aren’t in your regular inbox.
First of all if you have a business email and you want to add that email to your Gmail account you must have the required things –
- You will need your incoming and outgoing mail server addresses as well as their port.
- The username and password for the email account
- SSL settings [SSL/TLS or none]
- A Gmail account
If you have these requirements then no worries, the thing is easier. Let’s assume that you have an email address [email protected] that you want to add to your Gmail account [email protected].
NOTE : We need the SMTP and POP3 configuration.
Secure SSL/TLS ON (Recommended)
|Password:||Use the email account’s password.|
IMAP Port: 993 POP3 Port: 995
SMTP Port: 465
|IMAP, POP3, and SMTP require authentication.|
If you have the above information, let’s get started and add the email to our Gmail account.

Send the emails from the another account in Gmail
The way to send emails using IMAP is different from how you access them. In order to send an email all you need is the full message’s content and the recipient’s address. This is because IMAP does not (natively) support sending mails, it only works for fetching mail. Thus, if you want to send an email attachment, you should also be able to view the full body of the message, save attachments and even edit them directly in Google Mail:
- On your computer, open Gmail.
- In the top right, click Settings See all settings.
3. Click the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
4. In the “IMAP access” section, select Enable IMAP.
5. Click Save Changes.
6. Change SMTP & other settings in your email client.
|Incoming Mail (IMAP) Server||imap.gmail.com|
Requires SSL: Yes
|Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server||smtp.gmail.com|
Requires SSL: Yes
Requires TLS: Yes (if available)
Requires Authentication: Yes
Port for SSL: 465
Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587
|Full Name or Display Name||Your name|
|Account Name, User name, or Email address||Your full email address|
|Password||Your Gmail password|
That’s all you are ready to setup your email from IMAP/POP in Gmail.
