  • Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail: Check this option.
  • Proceed by clicking "Add Account."

Step 6: Decide on Sending Emails

    Configuring Sending E-mails

Complete the process by following the on-screen instructions, including verifying your email address.

Success! You've now successfully connected your cPanel email account to your Gmail. You can send and receive emails using Gmail's interface.

Confirmation to Allow Gmail to Send Emails

After configuring Gmail to send emails as your cPanel account, Gmail will require confirmation to ensure you own the email account being added.

  • Log back into your cPanel and navigate to the webmail for your email account.
  • Access RoundCube or your preferred webmail client to find the confirmation email from Gmail.
  • Open the email and click the confirmation link provided.
  • Click the "Confirm" button in the Gmail confirmation page that opens.
  • Once you've completed the steps above, a confirmation code will be sent to the email address you're adding to Gmail. Locate this code in your cPanel webmail, enter it in Gmail, and click "Verify" to finalize the connection. This confirms that your cPanel email account is now linked to Gmail, allowing for both the sending and receiving of emails.

Authenticating Your cPanel Email Address

Info! Test the setup by sending and replying to an email from your cPanel account. Initially, these emails might land in the spam folder, but marking them as "Not Spam" will train Gmail to place future emails directly into your inbox.

To enhance your email's professionalism and ensure recipients trust it:

  1. Navigate to the "Authentication" section under the Email heading in cPanel.

  2. Enable DKIM for your email account to authenticate outgoing emails, reducing the likelihood they're marked as spam.

    E-mail DKIM
Warning! Authenticating your email using DKIM is highly recommended to avoid your emails being flagged as unverified by Gmail.

After enabling DKIM, give it some time for the changes to propagate. If issues persist, contacting your hosting provider may be necessary. Once authenticated, your emails will display your profile photo instead of a question mark in Gmail, signaling to recipients that your emails are legitimate and secure.
