Fetch cPanel Email Using Gmail

Share This Article [TheChamp-Sharing]

Hostwinds suggest to Fetch your email in Gmail as opposed to setting up an email forwarder or alias to prevent your domain from being rate limited, blocked or very slow when checking email. This can happen if you receive SPAM and forward this to another email service provider as forwarding SPAM counts as sending SPAM
