One of my pet peeves about running multiple online businesses is email maintenance of multiple accounts. I believed I was in heaven when I finally started using IMAP. With IMAP no matter which one of my “configured computers” I used I used to be seeing updated and synchronized email. Then some day it occurred to me that maintaining a local email client on multiple machines was great provided that I was around my computers. So in order to make simpler my communications and have it literally “follow me” regardless of where I went and no matter what computer I was on I looked to Gmail.
Now I manage 24 separate email accounts in one gmail filters. In terms of the world knows there’s no difference including the return addresses are proper and different to each email account. If you have multiple email accounts you simply will not believe the time saving element of this move.
You can find 4 easy steps to the process.
#1 – Forward your email accounts in your Gmail account. Most webmail (and domain email) accounts have forwarding. If you are using a host you will need to visit your Cpanel and set up your email to to your Gmail account there. If you have no idea how to access your Cpanel call your host tech support.
#2 – See your Gmail account and head to Settings>Accounts and under the heading “After I get a message sent to one of my addresses:” select “Reply from your same address your message was delivered to” Once you’ve done that click “Add another current email address” fill out the name you would like to appear on the email account and so the full e-mail address. then click “Following Step” Within the next screen select “Send Verification” then go to your regular email client and search for the Gmail confirmation. Respond to the confirmation by clicking on the confirmation link.
At this time that exact email address will usually go to your Gmail account and except if you carry out the two final steps you’ll just have a big set of unorganized emails. These next two steps are in reality very cool and makes Gmail a VERY powerful universal email client.
#3 – Select “Edit Labels” and put in a new label. Inside my case I created a label for my source-pro admin mail and i also used a short title like SP – Admin. You need to produce a Label for each and every of your own email addresses you’re forwarding to Gmail.
#4 – This step is essential and could possibly be the distinction between owning an unorganized lot of emails or even a perfectly organized email system.
Click “Create a Filter” and in the “To” box put in the current email address you want organized. Then click “Next Phase” and within the next screen select “Apply the label:” box, also, you’ll need to choose the label ynrtxk corresponds to the email address. Then click “Create Filter” and at this time you’re good to go. Every time Gmail receives an email addressed for that address it’s labeled and tracked. Set one your contact information up and you’ll see the things i mean. the great part is that you could set Gmail to handle as numerous contact information as you desire.
Spam control – Hands down Gmail has got the best spam handling I’ve seen. it’s superior to Outlook or Thunderbird. That one feature alone has reduced my “email time” considerably!
