Setting up your Hostinger Email account on Gmail Web version

To set up Hostinger Email on the web version of Gmail, make sure that:

  1. You have created an email account with Hostinger Email
  2. Your domain is pointed to Hostinger
  3. The correct Hostinger Email MX records are added to your domain’s DNS zone

Then, proceed with the steps below 👇

Step 1 : Gather the Hostinger Email Account Details

Gather the configuration details of your email account from Spread Your Brand Team.

POP3 (incoming)SMTP (outgoing)
Encryption: SSL
Port number: 995
Encryption: SSL
Port number: 465

Step 2 : Link your address to Gmail

  1. On your computer, open Gmail from your primary gmail account.
  2. In the top right, click Settings Settings and then See all settings.
  3. Click the Accounts and Import or Accounts tab.
  4. In the “Check mail from other accounts” section, click Add a mail account.
  5. Type the email address you want to link and then click Next.
  6. Select POP3 Option : ‘Import emails from my other account (POP3)’.
  7. Head next to below step 3.

Step 3 : Set Up Hostinger Email on Gmail

Make sure to select the POP3 option instead of Gmailify in previous step.

With POP3, your emails will be stored only in Gmail and deleted from the Hostinger webmail (or other email clients you might have set up) unless you choose the option to leave a copy on the server 💡

The window with the incoming email (POP3) details inserted will look like this:

The parameters for outgoing email (SMTP) will look this way:

Finally, once you click on Add Account, your Hostinger Email account will appear in Gmail.

If the Gmail account you wish to connect Hostinger Email to is a Google Workspace account, you'll need admin access to Google Workspace in order to enable the option to send emails; follow this guide: Allow per-user outbound gateways 💡


Most errors are related to having entered incorrect parameters into Gmail. In those cases, it is highly recommended to reset your password and re-enter the parameters one more time, making sure that the POP3 and SMTP settings match with those from the table above.
