Do you have tried the forward feature from HOVER mail???
Looking for directions on how to use a business Gmail account I purchased. I'm not thrilled to find out too late that Hover charges extra for email addresses, so I decided to buy a Gmail address. I do not want to read my email from Hover using Gmail. I want to read my Gmail business address using the same domain name as the address I registered with Hover in Gmail.
Anyway, searches for how to make this Gmail address work are not turning up instructions on how to point to Gmail's server. Any email to my address bounced back with an error.
I'm sure this is not the first time this has happened (trying to use a business Gmail account instead of buying email addresses from Hover). Hover is configured to only use Hover for email. Where can I find the instructions? I have checked the FAQs in Hover and Gmail. Need instructions in laymen's terms, please.
Thanks in advance.
We actually wrote up a help document on this very topic. Check it out at: https://help.hover.com/entries/21226772-How-to-Google-Apps-domain-v...
I've gotten through nearly all the steps after some trial and error, but for some reason, I'm not getting the verification email from gmail. Do you know what might be wrong?
Hi Daina, can you check your spam folder to see if it arrived there please?
Nothing there either. I feel like the problem is with my hover account as it's not recieving any mail I send it from my outside accounts...
Daina, I just sent you an email so I can investigate. I look forward to hearing from you.
I am having a problem right in the beginning "Server denied POP3 access for the given username and password."
Hey there Christine, I've sent you an email to help you get started!
I am having the same issue as Christine, "server denied POP3...". Please help!
Hi Shauna, I see you've been working with Rodger to get your e-mail set up. Please let us know if you need additional help.
Does this process work with the $5 per year Forward Only email plan? Are you able to confirm your "email@example.com" email address to gmail if you don't have an actual email box?
Hi Miguel, using Hover email from Gmail requires an actual physical inbox, so the Forward-only plan will not work. Thanks for asking.
Yep. Me, too. Getting the same issue as others, "server denied POP3..."
I changed my password on the Email settings in my Hover.com account per a help ticket reply. Is there a certain amount of time before the server resets itself with my new password in order for Gmail to verify?
Hi Kevin, sorry to hear that you're having trouble with your Hover mail. I'm sending you an e-mail so we can work on getting this fixed for you.
Im Having problems with Gmail configuration I get till #5 and then an error I tried everything, the password is my hover password, or gmail password...I tried both and have no idea what Im doing wrong I type evything as shown and not working can you help me
Im attaching where I get stuck....thanks for the help :)
The password would be your webmail password which is usually different from the one you use for your Hover login page. I would suggest verifying your email password in your Hover account first and then setting it up with Gmail once more.
You can update the password by logging into your Hover account at www.hover.com and selecting the Emails tab. Place your cursor over your email address and the "password" option will appear. Let me know if you run into any trouble from there.
(Edit : Removed code for easier reading - Henry)
Sorry about all that code. Din't realise Word would send it along as well
Hi Fiona, if you're having trouble with Gmail receiving e-mail, you can add an e-mail address as a Safe Sender with Google's filter settings. You can Create a new filter, using your Hover e-mail address, and make sure that "Never send it to Spam" is selected for your filter options.
Hi HenryThe problem is Gmail isn’t receiving my Hover email at all. It is not in Spam or anywhere else in Gmail. When I attempt to add my Hover email to Gmail as per this page I get an error when I enter my Hover email address, password and POP server info. I am confused as to which password is to be used. When I go to my email page at Hover I am unable to get ‘password’ to appear when I put my cursor over my email address so I use my Hover password. When I enter the Hover password and other info Gmail gives me the error Server denied POP3 access for the given username and password.
Hi Fiona, if you've purchased a forward only e-mail, this won't work since it's not a POP e-mail address. There is no password for forward e-mail since there is no mailbox to log into.
This isn't fair...
On the https://www.hover.com/email page, under the "Forward Only" section, continuing down to "HOW DO I USE THIS?" it says "Forward your new email address to your gmail, hotmail, or any other email account you own."
which is the reason I purchased this feature, to forward to gmail, since I did not "need an email inbox with storage"
Hi Ryan, you can forward email on a forward only address to a Gmail address, but you won't be able to have this e-mail synced via POP to your Gmail account since the forward only mailbox doesn't have a password.
Hi, not all of my email is being forwarded to my gmail account. I'm able to get some of it, but not everything. Can you please set it not to filter out spam, I believe that is what's happening. Thanks, Aaron
Hi Aaron, I've sent you an e-mail to help troubleshoot your account. Please keep an eye on your inbox for the e-mail.
Hi I am not receiving the verification email from gmail to my hover email account that I checked through https://mail.hover.com. Have asked gmail to resend the mail but still not received it. How do I move forward?
Gmail just sent me this message :
Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently: firstname.lastname@example.orgTechnical details of permanent failure:Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the server for the recipient domain lankavillas.com by smtp.secureserver.net. [184.108.40.206].The error that the other server returned was:550 #5.1.0 Address rejected.----- Message suppressed -----
I had a look at your domain lankavillas.com and can see the name servers are not pointing to Hover. If you're no longer using the GoDaddy name servers for hosting or email services, you should change those over to ns1.hover.com and ns2.hover.com. This will enable you to use our DNS for this domain. Your email should begin working in about 24-48 hours after the name server changes as it can take that long for the changes to propagate.
If you are using those GoDaddy name servers for website hosting still, then you'll need to edit the MX record over there on their servers to point to our MX record, which is:Priority: 10
I'm having a similar issue that was mentioned a few posts above. I have set up a mailbox for one of my domains (www.davidodwyer.net) and am trying to now access it via Gmail. I have gotten through to the final stage where I am meant to either click a link or input a code that I will have received in the hover webmail, but nothing's showing up. I'm also sending other emails to the domain email address from different email accounts to see if anything is coming through and not a single email is coming through to my Hover webmail Inbox or Spam. Please advise me what to do. The mail type is Plus, not forward, and it says "active" in the status...
Thanks for the help!
Hi Louis, I've sent you an email with instructions to help solve the issue. Just respond to my email if you need assistance.
