I have always thought that sending professional emails from a gmail address was, well, unprofessional looking, right? I mean, they’re generic, and it’s just way more fun and, of course, professional, to send emails from your company email. Therefore, in this article, I’m going to show you how to add an email address to your gmail so that your emails will show as coming from your company url address.
Why not just use the company email that comes with your url? I will speak for myself here, but I just love the gmail platform so much more than the platform that comes with my url email. I think gmail is super easy to use, I can have a bunch of gmails on my phone, and I’m very familiar with it. I’ve been using gmail for most of my life. I’m sure many of you out there would prefer to use your gmail account rather than your new company email service.
The process step-by-step
I am going to use a specific example to share with you how to do this.
In this examle, I will use the gmail address firstname.lastname@example.org and make it so I can use my company email email@example.com that I host through the Wealthy Affiliate platform.

Now, let’s go over the steps to setting up your website email so you can use it from your existing gmail account:
Step 1 - Go to your Gmail Settings Icon
Step 2 - Choose Accounts and Import
Step 3 - Click on Add Another Email address
Step 4 - Add your email address here
Once you click “Add another email address,” a window will pop up which prompts you to put in your name and the email address you want to add to your gmail. Click ‘Next Step.”
Step 5 - Head over to Wealthy Affiliate
While that loads, head over to your Wealthy Affiliate Account and click on the Websites tab on the Dashboard.
Step 6 - Click on Site Manager
Step 7 - Click on Site Email
Step 8 - Choose your preferred email address
In this example, I have chosen the firstname.lastname@example.org. (As you an see, I am already having all mail from this address forwarded to my Gmail.)
Click on the SMTP Settings:
Step 9 - Head back over to your gmail account
Enter the information where indicated, choose Secured Connection using TLS and click “Add Account.”
Step 10 - Check your gmail for a confirmation
Go to your gmail account and grab the confirmation code and enter it where prompted:
Once you click “Verify,” you’ll be rompted to click “Confirm.”
Step 11 - Let's test our email!
Head on over to your gmail account and let’s test to see if we can send our email from our ProfessionalWebsitesforYou.com email!
Click on he “Compose” button:
Next to the From area, you’ll see your gmail address and a little down arrow next to it. Just click on it:
Choose your company email and now when you send your email out, it will show your company email address and not your gmail address!
As you can see here, we have success!
My email shows as coming from Babs@ProfessionalWebsitesforYou.com instead of BabsWebsiteDesigns@gmail.com.
