Today, I’ll be showing you How you can create yourbusiness email address for free So after watching this video instead of you using a normal gmail account like thisone ([email protected]), you’ll be able to use an email ID like [email protected] which looks a lotmore professional Now, this means you will be ableto send or receive emails using addresses like [email protected] or [email protected] So, after you create yourbusiness email we’ll see, how you canconnect your business email with gmail so that everythingcan be managed in one place So, all you need to have tofollow this tutorial is aDomain name with GoDaddy So, if you don’t have a domain name.
you can get it now just by clicking here So, you can get thedomain and then follow this tutorial So after you’ve got the domian Now if you try to create anemail account on that domain you would need to pay about5 dollar a month for creating a business email So, In this video, I’ll beshowing you how you can avoid paying that amount and create your businessemail address for free So let’s get started! We’re going to create a businessemail address in just 5 steps! The First Step Is to login to godaddy So, let’s go to godaddy and then click ‘sign in’ Now sign-in to your account Okay,so now I’ve signed in! and you can see that this is the domain that I have on myaccount So we’re going to setup theemail on this domain So to do that Let’s go to step 2 which is to create an email forward in godaddy So by creating the forward we’ll be able to forward all the emails coming to your business email to your gmail inbox So let’s create a forward, let’s scroll down And click ‘additional products’ then next to email forwarding click ‘redeem’ Now click ‘createforward’ Now, in this field, enter the business email address that you want to create.
It can be [email protected] So I’m going to type [email protected] Now when you type @ it willautomatically show the domain that you’ve purchased on yourGodaddy account So you can select it and then here you need toenter your gmail address Now here we’re telling godaddyto forward, all theemails sent to this address to our gmail address Okay! So let’s click create! And our email forwardhas been created So, Nowlet’s go to STEP 3 Which is to check,if our DNS settings are correct In order to ensure, that theemails are being forwarded, we need to make sure, thatour DNS is setup correctly So to check our DNS settings Click ‘tools’ And click ‘server settings’ Okay!
So now you can see thatwe’re getting an error message which says “No MX records werefound” So this means,the forward, we just created will not work and enter thesettings given here So let’s fix the DNS by going to godaddy Then click here and click ‘my products’ Now next to yourdomain name click ‘DNS’ So, we’re going to add our MXrecords on this page So let’s scroll down and click ‘add’ And choose the’type’ as ‘MX’ Now in thisfield, just type ‘@’ and now we needto copy-paste the correct server settings inthis box So let’s go back to this page and copy this text and paste it here Now, enter ‘0’in this field And click ‘save’ Okay, so the firstentry has been added Now, let’s addthe final entry, by clicking ‘add’ And then select ‘MX’ Now type ‘@’ here and then let’s goto this page And copy the second setting and paste ithere Now enter ’10’ in this box and click ‘save’ Okay! So now we’ve added the MXrecords So, let’s go back and previously wehad this error message Now, since we’veadded our MX records let’s click ‘refresh’ And as you can see godaddytells us that the ‘MX records’ are correct This means that our email forwardingwill work So previously we told godaddy, to forward the emails cominghere to gmail Okay! So let’s go to a randomgmail account and click ‘compose’ and, try sending an email to [email protected] and click ‘send’ Now if we go to the gmail account, where we forwarded our mail and click ‘refresh’ You can see that we have received a mail So let’s click it So now, if you click here you can see that it was sent too ur business email So now, we’re able to receive emails to our business email Next.
we’re going to see how we can send emails from this address So right now, if we reply to this mail It will still go from our gmail address which we don’t want We want our email to be sent from [email protected] So to send emails from our domain we need an SMTP server So we’re going to get a free server from a website called ‘SMTP2go’ Okay! So let’s go to STEP 4 which is to Setup an account, on SMTP2GO So to create the account Let’s open a new tab and search for ‘SMTP2GO’ And then click the first link And click ‘Try for free’ Now let’s enter these details and click ‘sign-up’ Okay! So once you reach this page your SMTP account is nowready So now let’sgo to the final step!
Which is to Add this account to Gmail By doing this we’ll be able to send emails, from the business email address, using gmail So to add this account to gmail Let’s go there and go to ‘settings’ Now click ‘accounts & import’ And now, since we want to send emails, from our business email We need to click ‘add another email address’ And you’llget this ‘new window’ Now first, we’re going to enter the ‘from name’ which we want in our emails Now this is the name which will appear when someone receives an email from you So you can type anything here So I’m going to type ‘quick techy support’ And then here you need to enter the same email, which you used while settingup the email forward So for me.
it’s So, I’m going to enter that and then click ‘next’ Okay! So now we need to enter the username & password from SMTP2 GO So let’s go there and copy the username and paste it here and then copy the password and paste it Okay! So, now to get the SMTP server details let’s click ‘finish’ and copy the setting from here and then paste it here Now set the port to ’25’ and click ‘add account’ So, now gmail will send a confirmation code to your business email So let’s go to gmail and go to our inbox! Now click this confirmation email and copy this code and paste it here Now click ‘verify’ and we are done! Now if we go to ‘settings’ and click ‘accounts & import’ you can see that our business email.
is now, added! Now if you want, you can set this address as the default ‘from’ address If you want to set it as the default email address, just click ‘make default’ And now all the emails will be sent from your business email Okay, so now let’s test it by sending an email from our business email and see if we’re ableto receive it So let’s click ‘compose’ And you can see that the email is being sent from, our business email Now you can still send emails from your gmail address by clicking here and choosing your gmail address Okay! So now, we’ll test If we are able to send emails from our business email So I’ll select the business email and enter a test email And click ‘send’ Now ifwe go to that inbox You can see that, we’ve received the mail! So let’s open the mail And now if we click here you can see that the mail was sent from our business email Okay!
So now we’re able to send emails from our business email Next, we’re going to see, how you can remove this message which says “via smtp service” Now, this message is being shown, since we’re using SMTP2 GO If you don’t want ‘this message’ to be shown on your emails there is a way you can remove it So Next Let’s see, how we can remove the “sent via” message Okay! So in order to remove this message Let’s go to smtp go and then go to ‘settings’ and click’sender domains’ Now click ‘add a domain’ and, enter your domain So, I’m going to enter quick techy and then click ‘add domain’ So in order to remove that”sent via” message in gmail, We need to give access to SMTP 2GO to use our domain For doing that.
we need to add these entries into our DNS page Since our DNS provider is godaddy Let’s go there and then click here and click ‘my products’ Now click ‘DNS’ and then scroll down and click ‘add’ Now select ‘TXT’ as shown here Next, copy the hostname and paste it here and then copy this and paste it here Now click ‘save’ Okay, so now we’ve addedthe first entry Next, let’s add the second one So, click ‘add’ and select ‘cname’ and then copy and paste Copy this and then paste it then click ‘save’ Okay! So now we’ve added both theDNS entries Now let’s go to SMTP2GO and then let’sscroll down and verify our settings Okay! So now you can see that,all our settings are correct! Which means ‘the message’will no longer show up on our emails So now let’s try sending another email So, we’ll go to gmail and click ‘compose’ and then write a test email and click ‘send’ So now, let’s go to that inbox You can see the message which was there on our previous mail and nowif we check for the new email, which we just sent and open it You can see that we no longer have the message Okay!
