Note: All ports and naming will use Rycob’s information. While most hosts use the same naming format and ports, it may be different from host to host. Check with your host before proceeding if you’re unsure.
To get started you will need to know the following information.
If you are a Rycob customer, all of this information can be found in the welcome email sent to you, or in your Google Drive folder.
- “CPanel” username and password
- Email account desired and password
- SMTP server and port
- POP3 server and port
Rycob clients can find their SMTP and POP3 server and port on this post
If you have all of that, then you’re ready to begin!
Step 1: Login to CPanel
To login to your CPanel go to https://mydomain.com/cpanel replacing “mydomain.com” with your domain address. You should come to a screen like this:
Enter your username and password, log in and it should bring you to a screen that looks like this:
Step 2: Create the Email
Under the heading “Email” click “email accounts”
This will bring you to a new screen, where you will then click “Create+” in the upper right.
Now you need to select what you would like your email to be.
In this example, I’m choosing “firstname.lastname@example.org”.
Step 3: Receive Email to Gmail
The rest of these steps will take place in the Gmail account you want to receive this email in:
Click the gear in the upper-right corner of your mailbox, then clicks settings
Click “Accounts and Import” on the top bar
Approximately halfway down the page beside “Check mail from other account:” Click “Add a mail account”
This will open a new window. Type in the email address you want to add and click “Next”
Ensure “Import emails from my other account (POP3) is clicked, and then click next
Ensure all the settings and information matches the image below using the email and password you created in step 2.
Note: It is crucial that you make sure “Port” is set to 995
You should come to a screen the same as the one below. Ensure “Yes, I want to be able to send mail as …” is checked
Fill out your name in the next box, ensure “Treat as an alias” is checked and then click “Next Step”
Fill out the boxes with the exact info seen in the below picture and then click “Add Account”
Note: It is crucial that “Port” is set to 465
This will lead you to a screen that asks for a confirmation code.
You will only need to wait a couple of minutes for this to be sent to your email.
After it has arrived, enter the verification code, click “Verify” and you’re done!
