You don’t really need Outlook 365 or G Suite

If you’re a solo founder, an indie hacker, a bootstrapper, a webmaster, a developer or if you have multiple domains, and/or you need to manage multiple inboxes, then this article might be perfect for you.

We’ll show you how you can send and/or receive emails in your Gmail with your custom domain email addresses.

Here’s how to get started. If you need help, just send us an email info@kingmailer.co:

  1. Create Endpoints

    An Endpoint is where you want the emails to be delivered, it can be your Gmail-address.
    In your Kingmailer-account go to Routing (1), click on Address Endpoints (2) and then on Add your first address endpoint (3).

  2. Enter your email address

    Enter your email address (1) and click Create address endpoint (2).

  3. Create a Route

    The Endpoint is there, so now you can create any email address you like, all emails send to this address will be delivered (forwarded/routed) to the Endpoint aka your Gmail address.

    Enter a username (1) for your email address for example info@domain so there you’ll enter just info. Select the domain (2) (which you already verified in your account: SPF, DKIM, MX and Return Path). Choose the Endpoint (3) which you created earlier.

  4. Sending Emails from Gmail

    Go to Settings > Accounts and Import > Add another email address > Send mail as

  5. Add your email address

    Enter your name and your email address, allow Treat as an alias and then Next Step

  6. Enter the SMTP credentials

    You can use these settings:

    SMTP Server: kingmailer.org
    Username: enter your SMTP username
    Password: enter your SMTP password
    Port: 25
    Unsecure connection or TLS (our servers will encrypt the emails with TLS, if Unsecure connection is checked as option)

So there you have it, you can send and receive emails in your Gmail using your own domain. Create as many email addresses you want, have the emails delivered to your Gmail, at no extra costs.

In this tutorial I have worked with Gmail, but you can use any other provider such as Hotmail, Yahoo or Proton etc.
