Gmail Mail Fetcher

To set up Mail Fetcher:
  1. Click Settings at the top of any Gmail page, and open the Accounts and Import tab. (For Google Apps domains, open the Accounts tab.)
  2. In the Check mail using POP3 section, click Add POP3 email account.
  3. Enter the full email address of the account you'd like to access, then click Next Step. Gmail will populate sample settings, but we recommend checking with your other provider to learn the correct server name and port. Enter your Password.
  4. Decide whether to:
  • Leave a copy of retrieved messages on the server
  • Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail
  • Label incoming messages
  • Archive incoming messages
  1. Click Add Account.
  2. Once your account has been added successfully, you'll have the option of setting it as a custom From address. This allows you to compose messages in Gmail, but have them appear to be sent from your other email account. Click Yes to set up a custom From address.

Why would I want a Dedicated IP Address?

With a dedicated IP Address you get to:

RUN MORE SOFTWARE ON YOUR SERVER
Certain programs require a dedicated IP address before they can be set up and used. A dedicated IP allows you more options for available scripts.
PERFORM BETTER IN SEARCH ENGINES
Many people believe that sites with a dedicated IP rank better in search engine results than those on a shared IP.
OPEN NON-STANDARD PORTS
Gain access to additional ports you may need to run special services on that are blocked for shared IPs.
VIEW YOUR WEBSITE BY IP ADDRESS
Handy for situations where you want to access your site, but your domain name is inaccessible.
AVOID NEGATIVE IMPACT FROM OTHERS
On a dedicated IP you avoid possible negative action taken against shared IP users should someone on the same server get blocked.
ENABLE SSL ON YOUR WEBSITE
SSL Certificates are crucial if you have a business-oriented website and want to collect sensitive information.
