Configuring an Email Address in Gmail

We recommend users access their email from email software like Thunderbird or Outlook, from webmail, or from a device, but some users may wish to integrate their email account into Gmail. For users that wish to use their email hosted with StormWeb from inside Gmail, follow the steps below to configure Gmail to access your email account:

  1. Login to your Gmail account.

  3. Then click on See all settings.
  4. Click on the Accounts and Import tab.
  5. Under Check mail from other accounts: click on Add a mail account
  6. A yellow window will appear where you can enter your connection information.
  7. Enter your email address, then click Next.
  8. Select Import emails from my other account (POP3), and then click Next.
  9. Under Username: enter your full email address.
