How to add a Google Suite email to your personal Gmail account

By December 11, 2018 August 6th, 2019 Marketing, Moss Worth

Having a Google GSuite business email is a way of life for most people.

However, most of us already have personal Gmail addresses and would prefer not to have to check another email account. The good news is that you can use your personal Gmail to check your work email.


Step 1 – enabling IMAP for your GSuite email

  1. Log into your Google Suite address via gmail.com
  2. Click settings (the gear icon in the top right corner).
  3. Click “settings” and then click “Forwarding and POP/IMAP.”
  4. Select “Enable IMAP” from the section at the bottom. Save changes.

This is what your GSuite email settings should look like. Don’t forget to save


Step 2 – Checking your Gsuite email through your personal Gmail address

Now that you’ve got the backend set up, it’s time to:

  1. Log into your personal Gmail address
  2. Click settings (the gear icon in the top right corner)
  3. Click “settings” and then click “Accounts and Import”
  4. Scroll down and find the section titled “Check mail from other accounts”
  5. Click the words “Add a mail account”

Here’s what that all looks like in your Gmail:

Lots to do here – make sure your screen looks like this one.

POP Server: pop.gmail.com
Port: 995

** Make sure to check “Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail.”

** Make sure to create a new label – as this will make it easy to differentiate your Gsuite emails from your personal Gmail emails.

When it’s successful, you’ll see this screen, which walks you through sending emails through your Gsuite address.


Sending work email through your personal Gmail

The final step is setting up Gmail to send emails as if you were sending from your Gsuite account. The process begins automatically after you finish setting up your incoming POP servers.

** Make sure to check “Secured connection using TLS (recommended)”

Verifying your Gsuite email address

The final step is to log back into your Gsuite email the old way and click on the verification email.

That’s it.

You should now be able to send and receive your Gsuite email through your personal Gmail address.
