Use Gmail to send from your DreamHost email address

If you have already created an email address on your domain at DreamHost, you can add this address to your Gmail account to 'Send as'. This means you no longer have to log into your DreamHost email to send. You can log into Gmail and send 'from' your DreamHost email address.

Adding your DreamHost email to Gmail

  1. First, create a fully hosted DreamHost email address.
  2. Log into Gmail.
