If you have a Gmail account and want to access your Irish Domains email account through Gmail, you can add your email address as an additional email address in Gmail.

To set up..

Log into your Gmail account
Click on the "Settings" icon (Cog Wheel) on the top right, and select "Settings" link
Select the "Accounts and Import" tab
Under the section "Check email from other accounts (using POP3):" click on the link "Add a POP3 mail account that you own"

  In the POP server setup page...
  - Enter your email address in the box provided & click "Next Step"
  - Enter your Username (Full email address)
  - Enter your email account password
  - Enter your Pop server:
  - Select port "995"
  - Tick box "Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail"
Click on "Add Account" Button

Select "Yes, I want to be able to send mail as  [email address]  & click on the "Next Step" button
  - Enter your name (this is what recipients will see when they get an email from you)
  - untick box "Treat as an alias"
Click on "Next step" button
  In the SMTP server setup page..
  - Enter your SMTP server:
  - select Port "587"
  - Enter your email account username (your full email address)
  - Enter your email account password
  - Select "Secured connection using TLS"
Click on "Add Account" Button

To complete the setup, Google will send an email to your email address. Enter the verification code received from Google or click on the link they provide to verify your ownership of the email account and complete the setup.

(You can safely close the setup window and complete verification at a later time if necessary)
