    Hey Istiak,

    I see this article is kinda old. What about google domains? I own my domain, however it looks google pushes you to pay for an additional monthly gsuite subscription in order to do this. Any help would be appreciated.

    Nice guide Istiak :)

    By the way, it is also possible to access your custom emails from your Gmail account using POP (without using forwarders). You can also reply to those emails from Gmail itself.

    Hi Istiak,

    thanks for this useful tutorial. I got my own blog email some time ago and it really helps with credibility. If somebody asks you or you apply for any service an email adress coming from your own blog rather than free gmail account looks just more serious.

    I spend a lot of time building my blog, so if somebody checks it out because of my email adress I’m sure they will find it valueable.
