Another Friday and this one is a national Holiday here in Denmark. So I am at home with the family, but still have a few minutes I can steal away for a quick blog post.
After writing my mail address in my last post I went to my hosting Company just to check up on the redirecting, but it wasn’t working. I tried a few of the aliases I had set up and changed the mails it redirected to, but still nothing. I wrote to the hosting Company who quickly replied that everything was OK on their end and even sent me some logs of successful redirects. So what to do? I did a quick Google and hey presto: Gmail was the problem, or at least had the solution to my problem. Apparently they do not always successfully accept redirections from other mail-hosts. So my solution was to make Gmail retrieve emails instead.
Find settings in your gmail settings:
Go to the accounts and import section:
Add the email that you want to retrieve from:
Addd details about login and POP server which you can find at your hosting company. After gmail has verified the settings you are ready to go:
Hope this helps others missing emails in their inbox…
