Overview

This article describes how to set up your Conetix-hosted emails in the Gmail app on your phone or tablet, allowing for easy access to your email accounts in one location.
Please note that this App is managed by Google – as such, our support for this app is limited to basic setup and configuration of email accounts.

Information

This process is based on our hosting plans that include SMTP Email Relay – our Business Starter or legacy plans will require you to use your ISP servers for Outgoing Mail.

Instructions

  1. Install the Gmail app on your device, via the device’s respective App Store/Play Store.
  2. Open the Gmail App by tapping the app icon.

    For emails hosted with Conetix, entering the domain name will usually suffice.
     
  10. On the Outgoing Server Settings page, ensure the Require Sign-in option is enabled and confirm that your SMTP Server is set correctly (usually the same as the one you set for the Incoming Server).
