You may have noticed in Hover’s Ultimate Domain How-to Guide Vol. 1 that we had a personalized email address to go along with the website nickymclaren.com/resume. A personal email is both professional and very easy to create using Hover and it really an extra personal touch to your email communications.
As a loyal Gmail user for years, I was excited to learn that I can use my Hover domain through Gmail. I love the Gmail interface and the idea of seeing the same inbox no matter how I connect; smartphone, laptop or tablet. The fundamental flaw with Gmail though is the @gmail.com suffix. It’s just so… generic. There are many benefits to having a personal @yourname.com or @yourdomain.com email address. For one, it speaks to a level of tech savvy that employers are looking for. It can also drive people to visit your domain name when they see that you have an email addres @yourowndomainname.com.
With Hover it’s simple and straightforward to send and receive firstname.lastname@example.org email without sacrificing the excellent Gmail webmail interface.
Here are the steps to follow to send and receive your Hover email through your Gmail account using POP3:
Now you should be able to send and receive email using your Gmail account!
