  My advice when handling an influx of new email that’s business related, is to funnel that email through Google’s email system.  Their Gmail accounts are 100% Free to use and are built for business operations.  Their abundant storage and expansive toolset allows any level of business to communicate professionally with their clients using Google’s latest technology.  

Setting up your new Gmail account:

Type www.gmail.com into the URL window or what’s called the Address Bar at the top of the screen. (If you’re starting on the google.com main page you’ll notice a link to Gmail at the top of the screen to the left.) Click the big “create an account” button on the lower right hand side of the screen.  Follow the remaining instructions to setup your account.

 

Step 1: Add an address you own

  1. On your computer, open Gmail.
  2. In the top right, click Settings Settingsand then Settings.
  3. Click the Accounts and Import or Accounts tab.
  4. In the “Send mail as” section, click Add another email address you own.
  5. Enter your name and the address you want to send from.
  6. Click Next Step.
  7. Enter the SMTP server (for example, smtp.domain.com) and the username and password on that account.
  8. Click Add account.

Step 2: Confirm the address

  1. Sign in to the account you added.
  2. Open the confirmation message you got from Gmail.
  3. Click the link.

Step 3: Change the “From” address

  1. In the message, click the “From” line.
    (If you don’t see this, click the space next to the recipient’s email.)
  2. Select the address to send from.

Always send from a different address

If you want to always send from your other address, you’ll need to change both your default “From” and “reply-to” address. If you only change the “From” address, replies will go to your original Gmail address by default.

To always send email from a different address or alias:

  • On your computer, open Gmail.
  • In the top right, click Settings Settings and then Settings.
  • Click the Accounts and Import or Accounts tab.
  • In the “Send mail as” section, select a setting under “When replying to a message.”

When you send a message, replies will go to your original Gmail address by default. To choose a different address, follow these steps.

  1. On your computer, open Gmail.
  2. In the top right, click Settings Settings and then Settings.
  3. Click the Accounts and Import or Accounts tab.
  4. In the “Send mail as” section, click edit info next to your email address.
  5. Click Specify a different “reply to” address.
  6. Add a reply-to address.
  7. Click Next Step.
  8. Click Save Changes.
