Adding a mailbox connected to a Gmail address Follow

You can add another mailbox to your Outpost account any time.

This article will show you how to add a new mailbox using a Gmail address you own. We're assuming that you've already started your Outpost account.

Note: Outpost will import all of your email history. To ensure a smooth transition, you may want to clean up your Gmail inbox before you connect to Outpost.

 

Adding a mailbox with a Gmail address

  1. At the upper right hand corner of your window, click on the Settings icon:

  5. Outpost defaults to showing the mailbox email address as the "send email as" name. If you like, you can change this to a name your recipients will recognize:

  6. Finally, enter a mailbox signature. This signature will appear on all messages sent from this mailbox:

    Note: If a user also creates a personal email signature, then any messages they send from this mailbox will display their personal signature above the mailbox signature.

  7. Click Connect Mailbox:
