As a blogger or owner of a website, you have a custom email address through which your clients or visitors can contact you easily. But we all know that we have to handle so many email accounts, so when the website’s custom email address is added to the list it increases the workload. It comes with its own rules and data. We have to remember its username and password.
Even though if we want to check the mails in custom email address we can’t access them from our regular email client like Gmail, Yahoo mail, etc. Think about that, there is a solution of our problems which can connect our custom email address to our regular and free email client. It becomes more convenient right?
