In this article, I’m going to show you how to use Gmail to send and receive from other email addresses.
Webmail comes in handy when you have to get a custom email or professional email under your company or brand domain name.
That email may look like [email protected]. And the possible way to make use of this email is to use it via your webmail applications like Roundcube.
But how about if you could configure all that (emails) into Gmail so you never have to check or login into webmail again.
Note: the digits in brackets e.g. (00:02) indicate the minutes of that exact explanation in the video so you can easily jump to that section and follow along.

Create a Professional or Business email
Under Cpanel > email >email accounts, click create then enter a name you want for your email (01:46), enter your password and click the create button.
This process is the same as signing up on any other email platform, except in this case you’re creating a private or professional email address under a specific domain name.
After creating your email open it up in your Webmail.
If you already have an email created for you for example by your web admin, you just open up that email by going to that website which that email was created for; that is, yourwebsite.com/webmail. For example in this case; magareports.cloud/webmail, enter your email and password then login.
After logging in you’ll receive an email that comes with the email configurations that you’re going to need to connect your Gmail account with your webmail account (03:34).
If you don’t receive this email, ask your web admin or web host to give you these details.
Go to your Gmail account and in Settings go to Accounts and Import (03:59).
Here, you can add your business emails to be able to send and receive emails using your Gmail. Go to the Send mail as option and click on the Add another email address option (04:08).
Under Name, add the name that will appear as the sender (your name), the under Email address add your business email or the email you want to connect with your Gmail, check the Treat as an alias option then go to the Next step (04:56)
In the next window, you need to set up your SMTP server details that you get from the Secure SSL section from the email you received on your webmail account, or from your CPanel under the CONNECT DEVICES option (05:34).
Set Up your Gmail to Send Emails From your Webmail Account
Copy the URL under Outgoing Server then paste it in your Gmail settings under SMTP Server, under Port, select the port from the dropdown. Then enter your created Username and Password and click Add account (06:21)
You’re going to receive an email with a code to verify the connection of your Gmail account with your Webmail account, click on the link and confirm, or copy and paste the code then confirm (07:03)
Back in your Gmail inbox, reload it and go to Settings > Accounts and Import, you’ll see that a new email has been added under Send mail as (07:28), and when you go to Compose, that email will be under the From section as well.
Set Up your Gmail to Receive Emails From your Webmail Account
Let’s now set up Gmail so that all emails sent to the Webmail account come straight to the Gmail inbox and can be responded to.
Back in your Settings under Accounts and Import, under Check mail from other account and clock on Add a mail account (08:30), add your webmail email address then click Next.
Check the Import emails from my other account option, then click Next.
In the next window add your Webmail email and password, then under POP Server and Port, enter the details from the Incoming Server section (09:14), then Add Account.
You’ll receive an email notification to confirm the connection, click on the link to confirm, and now if anyone sends an email to your webmail account, you’ll be able to receive it and respond via Gmail, without logging into webmail.
That’s how you can use your Gmail to send and receive emails to/from your webmail or other accounts without having to log into webmail.
