If you use Cloudflare, then you might have noticed the Emails tab on your Cloudflare Dashboard. It actually gives you free business email like [email protected] , and receive mail on your own email like gmail, yahoo etc. But you could not send mails using the business mail created using Cloudflare.
Today in this article I’ll show you how to integrate Cloudflare SMTP on gmail, so that you can send mails from that email address. So, let’s start
Go to Cloudflare and click on the email tab.
Now create your custom email address and choose the destination email address(In this case, your gmail address), where you want to receive mails.
After that, you’ll have to verify that gmail address by clicking on the verification mail sent to your gmail address.
This was the part to create your custom email using Cloudflare. You can now receive the mails sent to the custom email address in your gmail inbox.
Now we’ll see how to integrate it with gmail so that we can send emails using cloudflare custom email address.
At first go to your gmail and click on the gear icon and select see all settings.
Then click on Accounts and Import . In the Send mail as option, click on Add another email address.
A new popup will be opened. Here enter the name which you want to show when you send an email from that custom mail address and the custom email address and click on Next Step>>.
Now, fill the rest of the details like this-
SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com
Username: Your Gmail Username ( in case of [email protected], user is the username).
Password: Your gmail password.
Note: If you have two factor authentication turned on, then you can turn it off (just while the SMTP verification) or you can generate App Password from your Google Account >> Security tab and use that password instead.
And port to 465.
Now a verification code will be sent to your custom email address, which you know you’ll find on your gmail inbox. You will find a verification code which you need to enter in the the next step and verify.
After verification you can choose between your original gmail address and the custom cloudflare email address while sending an email. Or you can make it default by going to the Accounts and Import tab again and clicking on make default. That’s it. you’ve gotten what you wanted. 😉
