Create Your Professional Website Email Address as Email Forward to Your Gmail
Step 1: Create an 'email forward' in WA SiteEmail using the 'New Email Forward' tab
How to create an email forward is demonstrated in the video by Kyle in the classroom https://my.wealthyaffiliate.co... at the 8.30 minute mark but I will give you a summary below.
Go into SiteRubix>SiteManager>SiteEmail and select New Email Forward tab.
That gives you 3 boxes to fill in:
1.The first box type in the name you choose for your domain email eg contact or support or admin or your name.
2. The second box you select which website domain it is for, from among those hosted at WA, the drop down menu has them listed there for you to choose.
3. The third box you fill in your own personal gmail address where you want this website email to be forwarded to.
For example in this training I'm going to choose firstname.lastname@example.org as my domain specific website email and create the 'email forward' to my gmail account like this:
All the mail to your website address now gets forwarded to your personal Gmail. However when you reply from gmail to this mail, the recipient will see your Gmail address as @gmail.com and not from your domain specific .com email address.
In step 2 on the next page of this tutorial we are going to now add your website email address to your gmail account so that your replies from gmail can show as from your website address, so the recipient now sees email@example.com instead of firstname.lastname@example.org.
[For websites not hosted at WA there are some extra steps to take to create the 'email forward', then follow steps 2 and 3 to get the same result of sending website email from gmail. It is when you see how quickly the email forward can be created on the SiteRubix platform that you begin to realize the power of the SiteEmail feature on the SiteRubix platform.]
