How can I connect my WPX Email Account with Gmail?

This article will explain how to connect your WPX Email account with Gmail (Gmailbox). This will allow you to see emails sent to your WPX email from your Gmail inbox.

If you want to learn how to set up Google Workspace (formerly known as G-Suite/Google Apps), you can find out how in this article

Step 1. Log in to your WPX account.

You can log in to your WPX account here.

Step 2. Email settings and forward your email to Gmail.

You can find the email settings in your emails sent from WPX here. Look for the email subject that includes the email box you want to set up.

For example, the settings for support@wpxexample.net are in the following email:

You can view the emails that are sent to your other email accounts from Gmail after you have forwarded the addresses to Gmail. To learn how to set up forwarding, you can read this article in our Knowledgebase

You can also find the Mail server settings in the E-mail Boxes menu under Mail Server Settings.

Some mailboxes use a different email username from the email address depending on the server that you are hosted on. If the email username is different from your email address, you need to use that username to connect your email address with any mail client.

To add forward fill in the field with your Gmail email (1) → If you don’t remember your password you can change it (2) and send the settings (3) to an email address of your choosing. When you are done with the changes, click on the Submit (4) button.

Step 3. Access your Gmail settings.

The first thing you need to do is to log in to your Google account. You can find the Gmail settings in the right-hand side menu (1). Select the See all settings (2) menu to open all available settings.

 Click on the Accounts and Import tab;

Within that tab, you will see a section titled Send mail as (1). To begin the process of adding another email address to your account, click on Add another email address (2);

Step 4. Configure your Gmail.

After you select Add another email address, a new window will open. In the Name field, add the name you want to associate with the email address you’re connecting to Gmail. In the Email address field, add the email address you want to connect to.

Keep the Treat as an alias box checked, then click on the Next Step button. Now you must configure your Gmail settings to use our server’s SMTP;

The Incoming/Outgoing servers are always the same. They are corresponding to the server hostname.

The server hostname can be seen in My ServicesWordPress HostingManage Service (next to the hosting plan you’re managing) → and Service details (under Server Details).

In our example the Severer hostname is s28.wpx.net. Fill in the Username and the Password of your WPX email. Change the connection to Secured SSL.

The SMTP Port is 465, as shown in the example screenshot.

After you fill out the form and click Add Account, Google will email you to verify the account you have added. One way to find this email will be via Webmail.

Step 5. Verify your account.

In the email you received, you will find 2 options to verify the account:

  1. Enter the verification code in the window and click Verify;
  2. Click the confirmation link in the email you received from Google.

Once you’re done, the configuration window will close and you will return to Accounts and Import. There, you will see a new option, When replying to a message;

Check the option: Reply from the same address the message was sent to …and you are done!
