Many of our clients take advantage of Googles email service. It is a stellar email system that allows you to use your own domain name, but with all the great features of GMAIL. Below are the email settings you will need for your devices.

Note: Some devices make setup easy by asking you which type of account you are setting up (windows mail, google, yahoo, etc.), following the directions presented in these cases should also work.

2 Setup Options Available
