Inbox by Gmail: Send and Receive Non Gmail Accounts

As Inbox by Gmail is still in the early stages of its adoption, it can only be used with @gmail.com and Google Apps Accounts. However it is possible to send and receive emails from your other accounts using Inbox by Gmail.

You just need to setup the accounts in classic Gmail as Send as Accounts and POP/IMAP accounts. The steps are simple, and have been detailed in my post here. You only need to change the Google specific settings for your specific account and domain.

Once you have these added in classic Gmail, you  can now receive your messages in Inbox from these accounts, and more importantly you can send mail from these accounts. Once you are in a compose window, click on the email address in the From field to expand the list and show your options. As you see I have 7 different accounts I can send as from my one Inbox by Gmail logon.

Simple as that.

    1. You can turn off the redirect from Gmail in the Inbox settings under other.

      Are you click on the from drop down in the compose as shown above?

    4. I am having the same issue with my IOS device. There is no "From" field from which to select what email address you want to send from. The "From" field is only showing up in the Desktop version

    5. Try uninstalling the app and reinstalling.

  3. Does this work with Exchange accounts?

    1. Only if your exchange administrator is allowing for POP access. Sadly mine does not, so I cannot use it this way

  4. Use a different interface that is now obsolete to make changes...

    "Simple" my fat behind.

    1. Not built in, but you could use Templates for your signatures. See here https://goo.gl/eGkHU1
