I was just updating how I use my Email account, and wondered how others access their Email.
I was working mainly with my PC all the time so, was comfortable checking my Email from Thunderbird, accessing the account via POP3. When I started to access the same account from the laptop too using POP3, it was kind of waste of time and disorganized as the Emails get downloaded even if you checked it somewhere else.
The solution had been using IMAP other than POP3 to sync the account with multiple Email clients, as I manage multiple addresses from multiple domains, it's kind of hard to manage, so I decided to center all of my Emails with my Gmail account and configured my Gmail account accordingly.
What do you need with Email, receiving Emails targeting you from several addresses, in my case I have a personal Email I use for everything that doesn't have to do with the business, I have an Email for DeveloperMan, because it's kind of cool and professional having such Email. Plus, accounts for managing Al-Adham, Egypt-Designers and Egypreneur.
I want to receive the messages sent for all these accounts and I want to reply from these addresses too, how should I go about configuring Gmail and my server to do that.
First step in the back-end is creating the Email account, in my case I wanted 2 mail boxes one related to everything had to do with the business and its projects and another one kind of personal, I use it for everything else.
So, I made an account for amagdy.net and decided to make it my personal account forever, and I made forwards for every account that's personal in nature, while I made also a business account al-adham.com where also everything related to the business is being forwarded.
Physically, there is only 2 account, 2 mailboxes and all the rest are forwards, mean that the message sent to that address doesn't get stored in the server, instead it gets forwarded to the other address specified.
How to do that with Gmail, that's what we're going to know shortly
