Access your Email in Gmail OR Connect webmail with gmail

Many users get irritated by accessing business emails through Webmail. They ask like “Why to use such worst mailing interface..? Is not there any better system..?”. But how much can you expect with basic applications. Webmail is kind of free service comes with hosting. Business mails need to be accessed through webmail unless owner use any other service.

One perfect solution is available for such situation. You can use professional service provider like Gmail, Zoho to access business email address with company name. Gmail cost you around $29/User/Year. It is expensive and so it is not recommended.

So, we have midway to overcome the problem without any expenses. All you need to do is connect your Webmail to gmail. You can refer it as diverting your emails from your business account to your personal gmail account. Here is how can you do it..
