With Gmail you can control several e-mail accounts from one master email account. People these days often have multiple e-mail accounts that they’re managing, one for work or business, one for personal and maybe even an old account that was setup years ago that you’re just not ready to get rid of yet. With Gmail you can forward multiple accounts to one inbox so you only ever have to check one. The days of logging into 4 accounts are long past, make ou life easier.

Here is what is fantastic, there is even a way that you can respond to e-mails from the master account and have GMail set to automatically send the reply from the e-mail address that received the original message. This makes it super easy to tackle e-mails from multiple e-mail accounts effortlessly.


Step by Step GMail Setup Tutorial

In Gmail, click Settings in the upper right hand corner of the interface



Select the Accounts tab.



In the Send mail as: section click the Send mail from another address button.


In the pop-up window that opens, fill in your name and email address, then click Next Step


In the next frame select the second option Send through [email address] SMTP servers (recommended for professional domains).  Then enter the following information.

SMTP server: smtpout.secureserver.net (just copy and paste this into the section)

Port: 465

Username: your Godaddy email address

Password: your Godaddy email password

Select Always use a secure connection (SSL) when sending mail then click Add Account


Your credentials will be checked and then you will advance to another frame of the pop-up with information about confirming your email address.  You don’t need to fill in the confirmation code, you will confirm the email address using the email that is sent to your account. Just click Close window.


Back on the Gmail Settings page, Accounts tab, in the Check mail using POP3: section click the Add POP3 email account button.


In the pop-up window that opens fill in your email address then click Next Step


In the next frame enter the following:

Username: your email address

Password: your email password

POP Server: pop.secureserver.net
or in some cases  mail.your domain.com or pop.yourdomain.com most cases will be pop.secureserver.net

Port: 110 or 995


Of the 4 check boxes that are available you can select the 3rd or 4th ones if you want.

Click Add Account


Now you will be able to receive incoming emails to your Go Daddy hosted account using Gmail. The first email that you will get probably is your Gmail confirmation email to validate that you can send emails from the hosted account via Gmail.  When you get that email, click the link to confirm your request.  You should be directed to a confirmation page.  Once that is done you will be able to send emails using your hosted email account through Gmail.

If you’d like to make your Godaddy email the default email on your account –


Incoming emails to your hosted email address will show up in your in box just like other emails.

To send an email from that account click Compose Mail then select the appropriate email address from the pull down menu at the top of the email form next to From:.

I suggest that you send an email to your hosted email address from your hosted email address just to make sure that everything is working right.  If you can send and then receive your own email then you know that everything is working correctly and you are good to go.  If not then go back through the steps and see if you entered something incorrectly.

Auto Sending from GMail Address

Under the “Send mail as” section under the heading “When replying to a message” make sure you also select the option “Reply from the same address the message was sent to“. This is one of the main benefits of setting up the master account!
