IMPORTANT UPDATE. As of March 2018, we have migrated a personal/work (e.g. non-broadcast ) email to AWS Workmail. AWS WorkMail supports all types of formats including offering a full exchange-like experience, as well as connecting via mobile and IMAP. However, it does not support POP3 as a transfer method. Unfortunately, Gmail ONLY supports POP3. So until Gmail adds support for IMAP or AWS adds support for POP3, you cannot connect your custom domain email account to your Gmail account.

If you have a Gmail account and you would like to manage your Blue Utopia email from your Gmail, you can check incoming email, as well as send outgoing emails through your Gmail account. To do this, you will need to set up a connected account in your Gmail account. To set up a new account in Gmail, follow these instructions:
- Log in to your Gmail Account
- At the top, click "Settings"
- From within Settings, click "Accounts and Import"
- Now, scroll down to the Check mail using POP3 and click Add POP3 Account.
- Enter the email address in the box provided and click Next
- Now enter the correct settings for your email address, password (sent to you), and incoming mail server (pop.emailsrvr.com).
- This should have successfully added your new email for incoming only email. If you wish to send email from within Gmail as well, you must now establish your outgoing settings. Click Yes and then Next to start this process.
- Gmail requires you to verify your email account before you can send email from within Gmail. Click "Send Verification".
- Check your email and retrieve the verification code you were sent. If you have not established the ability to check your email yet, you will need to do this to retrieve the code. The easiest way to do this is via the webmail client here: http://webmail.blueutopia.com. Simply enter your email address and password and retrieve your code from Gmail.
- You will now see your new account added in the accounts tab. By default, Gmail sends email from your Gmail account. If you wish to have your email sent out from your website address, you will need to change the Reply setting. Go to the "When receiving a message" and click "Reply from the same address the message was sent to". Your email will now be sent from the email account from which it was received.
- That's it. You should now be able to fully manage your email (incoming and outgoing) from within Gmail.
