When we purchase domains and hosting space, we are always provided with multiple features and functions in the Cpanel dashboard one of them being the email accounts.
Email accounts that are associated with domain names always look authentic and give users or customers trust that they are dealing with a genuine company or product compared to a personal email.
The most common emails that are created and associated with the domain are email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and also names of employees such that whenever they are conducting company-related business they can have uniformity.
To access these emails you must log in to the Cpanel and you have to always remember your password which most people do not prefer and also the time period for accessing these emails sometimes may be a challenge.
To make accessing Cpanel emails easier, we are going to show you how to configure the Cpanel email and add it to Gmail such that you will not have to access the Cpanel to either receive or check email or send a new email.
This makes it easier since as long as you are connected to the internet and you have your mobile phone active, you will receive Cpanel emails just like normal emails in your Gmail account.
To connect and open Cpanel email using Gmail,
- Open your Cpanel email by accessing the account using your domain name then add webmail like shown www.solutionspacenet.com/webmail
