Getting your email branding set up using the free, powerful , and very large email client packed with functions provided by Google.

1. The first thing to do is to set up the default reply mail policy.
Go to Settings » Accounts and click Add another email address you own and make sure fill in the radio button that says, Reply from the same address the message was sent to. see image to right . This way when a message is sent to an email managed by Gmail (eg: somename@gmail.com)  the reply that you send, Gmail will recognize and use the same identity the email was sent to. This allows for many emails to be used if you find you need to manage/use multiple emails.

2. Now, let’s configure your default mail.
Click Add another email address and put your name and the email address you want as default, you@yourdomain.com in our example

Gmail will send this email address a confirmation email to verify that you own it.
(You can set up this in your cPanel or Oregon Publishing has already setup the email forward for you)
Next, because you are forwarding the email, you will receive the confirmation message in your Gmail account. Cool, huh?
Be sure to use the code sent to you to verify your account.

3. The Last step is setting your default account.
Right now it is somename@gmail.com.
This means that all email you send and all email received are redirected to it, and will be replied with this identity.
You  may want to hide your Gmail account from public, so click on the make default link to the right of somename@gmail.com.

That’s it, you are done!
You can manage all your email within Gmail.
You can follow the above with any email client that let’s you forward email.
