So I have purchased a couple domains from Google Domains and I always liked how, if you stay with them instead of switching to CloudFlare, they will allow you to receive emails that forward to your personal Gmail. I don’t know why I didn’t bother with this before, but you can SEND FROM those email addresses as well.
- First, to get email sent to you at your new domain, you just go to Email – and enter “*” and point it to your personal gmail in the “Email Forwarding” section. Pretty straightforward.
Said another way: Click domain – Email – Add:*.domainname.com -> email@example.com
- To send out as that person though, you have to:
2a. Click on “My Account” – Sign In Options
2b. Find the “App Passwords” and select Mail – Other – Enter your domain name in other. It will then generate a code, copy that.
2c. Now open gmail – Settings – Accounts and Import – Add another address – Name: Your DisplayName – Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org – Next.
2d. SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com – Port: 465 – Username: YourCurrentGmail@gmail.com – Password: App password from above
2e. Click verification email – done!
