    Hi David, I have hosting with siteground and have created a custom email using their site tools/Cpanel. Can I forward emails to Gmail and use Gmail to reply (similar to what you showcased in your video). Also, why did you buy an email from Namecheap when you can create a free custom email address using your hosting provider?

    Does anyone know if I can use Yahoo mail instead of Gmail for this? I created a domain email in my namecheap account with my Yahoo email but it is not working. I did not get any email people try to send me at the Domain email address. I hate Gmail so I don’t want to be forwarding my mail to a Gmail address

    If you use this method does it mean your email will still work without the need to keep buying Namecheap’s email hosting?

    Hi David, Thank you for a great video! I just purchased my first domain name last night. Had a lot of technical issues trying to sent it up. I finally got it to receive emails in Gmail. NOw my issue is trying to fix the "Authorization failed" error. I did everything suggested by you as well as the Google help form. I even set up 2 part verification on my iphone. Did it all and still stuck on the merry go round. Any suggestions? I’d like to skip using Hosting if I can.

    Thank you so much it’s working just fine

    Great info David. Thank you so much. Another troubleshooting tip for anyone that still has issues with Gmail alias, is to basically change or remake your Gmail password. I had to do that since I have not changed mine in more than 10 years. After changing my password, plus turning on the Less Secure Apps security, everything basically worked.

    This is how you use a domain name registrar for a pro email. It’s a bit more techy and error prone than setting up an email with a hosting account but it can be done. Anyways, hit that like button and thanks for watching! ALSO check the trouble shooting section at the 5 minute mark if you’re running into problems.
