I’ve got a client which has the following setup:
He rents a domain and the domain includes for free to create email addresses, but he doesn’t have a email box with the host. The only thing it let’s you do, is putting a forward rule there so all the emails sent to that address will be forwarded to your gmail for example.
That works perfectly fine, however in order to send out emails from that address he needs a smtp server as he doesn’t have one with the host that hosts his domain. Until now he’s used gmail as a smtp (which I haven’t setup, so I don’t know how he did it)
Another intersting fact is that when you put this email address into the gmail web client it takes you to another gmail which also belongs to that client of mine. Basically he added an alternative email address to login to the (second) gmail account… (I don’t really think it matters for now…)
So my question is:
How can I send out an email from this email@example.com email address through a gmail smtp server? Like which password would I use to authenticate to that smtp?
If that isn’t possible what alternative is there to send out an email from this email address mentioned above?
Answers are greatly appreciated!
