Access your mail via Gmail

Use this guide if you have set up your mailbox with us, but would prefer to access your emails through Gmail.

 

Before you begin

Make sure you can access mail directly through Webmail using your username and password. If you’re unsure what you used for the password, you can always reset it through moonfruit.com > Account > Domains > Email and settings > Change settings.

 

Adding your mailbox

  • Log into Gmail, then click through this link to Gmails Account Settings page.
  • Click 'Add a POP3 mail account you own'.
  • Type out your full mailbox name (the one you created with us, eg info@yourdomain.com), and click 'Next Step'.
  • Add the following details:

 

Username Enter your mailbox email address, eg info@yourdomain.com
Password The password you created for the above email address
POP Server mail.gandi.net
Port 110 (or 995 if you use SSL - make sure to also check the SSL checkbox to enable)

 

  • Click 'Add Account'. You can now check your mailbox from your Gmail account.

 

Google will give you the option to set up sending from Gmail, too. This means that when composing new emails, you will be able to choose whether to send from your Gmail email address, or your mailbox held with us.

  • Click 'Yes, I want to be able to send mail' > 'Next Step' to begin the setup.
  • Add your mailbox name (this will appear in the 'From:' field when sending mail). You may wish to uncheck 'Treat as an alias', in order for recipients to reply to your mailbox rather than your Gmail address. Click 'Learn More' for further information. 
  • Click 'Next Step', then add the below details:

 

SMTP Server mail.gandi.net
Username Enter your mailbox email address, eg info@yourdomain.com
Password The password you created for the above email address
Port 25 (or 465 if you use SSL instead of TLS - make sure to select the correct option using the radio buttons)

 

  • Click 'Add Account', then log into your mailbox held with us and you should have received an email directly from Gmail. Click on the link provided in the email and you'll be brought to a page confirming the setup is complete.
