Now your email is being hosted by BigScoots but you still want Gmail handling your emails. How do you modify your Gmail to have it work seamlessly with the BigScoots email client?
The following article with guide you with step-by-step instructions to do just that!

Access WPO Email Information needed for modifying your Gmail Settings

  1. Login to the WPO Portal

  2. Navigate to the Email tab on the left-hand menu.

  3. Select the domain you are working on from the Site dropdown

This will provide you with the details Gmail will be looking for.

Modify "Send mail as" (Outgoing Email) Settings

2) Click "Next Steps", this is where you will input the new information from WPO replacing the previous information.
You can keep the Port: 587

Congrats, you've successfully modified your "Send mail as" settings for Gmail.


Modify "Check mail from other Accounts" (Incoming Email) Settings
