Email Configuration - adding your account to Gmail

  • August 19, 2016

Your Poism Digital Web Hosting account (except for Basic Web Hosting package), includes full fledged POP3/IMAP/SMTP email.  Fetching and sending this mail through Gmail is a great trick, as it is not only extremely convenient but also will allow your mail to be stored on Gmail's servers rather than taking up precious space on your webhosting server.  Also best of all, it alleviates the need of configuring additional accounts on all of your mobile devices - as soon as you add your PoismDigital email address to your Gmail account, all of your devices running the Gmail app will immediately be able to send and recieve mail using that address!
