email forwarding
« on: May 14, 2011, 01:19:56 PM »
I know this is a basic question, but how do you set up the email forwarding from a domain (i.e. sarah@mysite.com) to show up in my gmail or yahoo mail.  When you do set this up, is there any way to differentiate the email that is forwarded from that email on the domain??

Thanks for any insight.

Hi Sarah

You can either just send the emails that you want to your gmail address...
 
In gmail, you can set up a filter from a message that you have sent to yourself...
this will allow you to create a Label which will be available to you in the left hand
column of gmail that way you will be able to find them easily

Forward yourself an email, then click on the check box next to the message in gmail,
then along the top of the message fields (just under the google advert) you will see
a tab "More Actions", click on the down arrow and select "Filter Messages Like These"

On the next page (Create a Filter) you will see in the "from" box your email address,
just click on "Next Step"...then check the following boxes

Skip the Inbox (Archive it)
Apply the label: Choose Label - just click on the drop down box and select new label...call it what you want
Never send it to Spam

or

in gmail under settings - accounts & imports...you can check mail using pop3...

a new window will pop up...

enter your email ie sarah@mysite.com
in the next window you will see the following...you will need to fill in some of the details

Email address: sarah@mysite.com
Username: Mail Server Username - eg... sarah+mysite.com
Password:    your password
POP Server: mail.yoursite.com     Port: 110
Up to you - Leave a copy of the retrieved message on the server.
Up to you - Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail. I don't tend to worry too much about this
Check this box -   Label incoming messages: TYPE A NAME HERE This lets you create the label automatically
Check this box -   Archive incoming messages (Skip the Inbox)

You will need to find out the pop3 account details of your domains email...
Go to your cpanel, click on the email icon, then from the list click on the drop down box
that says "MORE" and select "Configure email client"...on the next page, scroll down and
use the details from the section "Manual Settings"

I hope this helps you a little

Regards
Craig
