In such a situation, it may become irritating for you to log in every account separately or switch between accounts to check and send emails. So, email alias allows you to keep all your email accounts allied at a single Gmail account.

Now from multiple options, click on ‘Accounts and Import’.
Now, click on ‘Add an email address’ to add your new alias.
Once you click on “Add an email account”, a popup window will open asking for the new email address that you want to add into your Gmail account. Enter your email address and click on Next.
You will get 2 options. Select “Import emails from my other account (POP3)” and click next.
This part may seem a bit tricky as you have to enter the username, password, POP Server, and need to look after a bunch of other options. But don’t worry; just follow below steps to complete this part.
- Username – It’s your full email address, in most of the cases, or you may need to ask your email service provider.
- Password – The password of the other account you want to add.
- POP Server – It is the Post Office Protocol Server and usually is like mail.domain.com, but your email service provider may have a different POP Server, so you may need to confirm it.
- Leave a copy of retrieved message on the server – Select this check box so none of the emails get deleted from the original server. (Recommended)
- Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail – You can select or leave this check box according to your original server settings. Keeping this option checked is good mostly.
