Setting Up Your Custom Email Address and Sending Through Gmail Without the Headache
The easy way to set up and send an email with your custom email address
Do you like pie? I like pie. We may have that in common. I’ll tell you what I also like, things being easy as pie, whatever that really means. As much as we try to get away from it sometimes, email is truly important in our lives today. The way we use our email can vary, maybe you do work with your hands or you’re an artist so email isn’t a top priority. But for many of us email is like a 24/7 hour IHOP, always open for business and too much of it could be bad for us. Setting limits for both yourself and your clients is necessary. If you’re like me, and apparently have a sweet tooth but also have a love for things looking nice from your house, to your office space and even your apps and email addresses I found an app that could help.
Nuage. I came across this app last night. Super excited to share it. So my email is firstname.lastname@example.org holla at me. We can talk about vanilla lattes and jpegs. But with my email, I send through Gmail. In order to set my email up I was going through POPs and IMAPs and Accounts and Imports and Ports all types of shit I don’t really know about, don’t really care to know about but this was one of the only ways I knew how to send email through gmail with my custom email address. (They say people value your business more when your email is custom and doesn’t come from like @aol.com, @yahoo.com — you get it or even @gmail) With Nuage its as easy as pie.
Sign in. Enter your custom email, which you can do with your hosting provider, you know Godaddy.com places like that, purchase your domain name, purchase the server space where you are able to upload your content and after that, set up your custom email address, send with the security of gmail and look all official and fancy when you land in people’s inbox.
Boom! Emails custom with your domain name. None of the technical wild stuff that makes you want to scream.
