Today I will be walking you through step by step process of configuring your Horde web mail settings for use within your Gmail account. If you haven’t already once in Gmail go to “Settings” then click on “Accounts and Import” tab. Click on “Add POP3 mail account you own” if you want to just check your Horde mail within your Gmail account.
Follow some prompts by entering your full email address ie. firstname.lastname@example.org. Enter your Horde username. You may need to use your full email address ie. email@example.com as your username, including @ symbol and domain.
Enter your Horde password. Select a check next to “Leave a copy of retrieved message on the server” if you don’t want to download your Horde email into your Gmail account. Enter your correct “POP Server” mail server ie. mail.domain.com.
Select a correct port number for mail server ie. 110. Default port 110 should work, but try any of some other ports in a drop down list if you know all other email settings are correct. Click “Add Account”.
Also, you can send email as your Horde email account via Gmail. Select “Yes, I want to be able to send mail as” radio button for this option or select “No (you can change this later)”. Click on “Next Step”.
Enter information about your other email address such as “Name” and reply to “Email address:”. Click on “Next Step”. Select “Send mail through your SMTP server?” settings.
You can choose to send email through Gmail or through your domain SMTP servers. You will need to enter your “SMTP Server” ie. smtp.domain.com, username, password, and port number, if you choose to send email through your domain SMTP server. Click on “Next Step”.
You will be asked to verify your email address if you wish to send your firstname.lastname@example.org email through Gmail. Click on “Send Verification” to have the Gmail system send you instructions via email for a verification process. You are now setup to receive and send your Horde email via your Gmail account.
These instructions were created for use with accessing your Horde email account within Gmail, but can certainly be used as a basis for other types of webmail accounts.
