Creating a gmail account for your mail

At The Online Marketer we allow you as many email accounts as you may like. However to get the most out of your email we suggest that you load the imap protocol.

A complete guide to setting your email is to be found on our website at https://www.theonlinemarketer.co/setting-up-your-email-hosted-by-the-online-marketer-2/

 But read on to get a better idea of why it is better to reroute your mail through gmail.

IMAP protocol suits our busy lifestyles. It will allow you to access your email on your laptop / desktop or your tablet / phone and when you open the email on one device it refelcts on the other device. To do this our servers need to hold a copy of all your mail.

Which eventually becomes problematic because space = money.

If you use the old fashioned “pop” protocols this isnt a problem at all, but you suffer by having less functionality as your email lands up on the device with which you open it.

Finally

If you had setup your email address directly onto your email client application such as Outlook you could delete that account.
