How to setup GoDaddy domain to work with your *personal* Gmail

I once had a domain bought from GoDaddy and used it with my Gmail account. Specifically I was able to:

  1. Get emails sent to mail@mydomain.com in my Gmail (email forwarding)
  2. Sent emails from mail@mydomain.com via Gmail

All free of charge (except of domain itself). You can still do it now, but it’s not that straightforward.

Email forwarding

Anyway, follow instructions below:

  1. Login to GoDaddy and open “My Products” page: https://mya.godaddy.com
  2. Find “WORKSPACE EMAIL”, click expand button (+)
  3. Click “Set Up” button next to “Free email forwarding for YOURDOMAIN.COM Email Forwarding — 100 Pack”
  4. “Set Up” should change to “Manage” (you may need to refresh the page)
  5. Click “Manage” button next to “Free email forwarding for YOURDOMAIN.COM Email Forwarding — 100 Pack”
  6. “Create” → “Forwarding” → Follow instructions on your screen
  7. Wait for some time before forwarding email is setup. Done! You are awesome! 😀

GoDaddy explains this here (cache), however doesn’t explain where to start (well done godaddy, well done).

Send emails from MAIL@MYDOMAIN.COM

  1. Open this page (cache)
  2. Go to “Send email from your email alias” in the bottom of the page
  3. Follow instructions (you’ll need Google 2-Step Verification to be enabled)
