- Click Add Account » (or Add Account if you have previously set up the address for sending in Gmail; in this case, you're done).

- Make sure Yes, I want to be able to send mail as is selected.

- This allows you to send mail from Gmail using the POP account's address in the From:line. Typically, it won't hurt to turn this on.

If you primarily use Gmail to send / receive both your domain and Gmail emails, you can leave the Leave a copy of retrieved messages on the server unchecked (**Recommanded**). You can check Leave a copy of retrieved messages on the server to allow you use another mobile device or email client (Outlook, Thunderbird etc.) to collect those emails again. ** Keep in mind, emails leaved on the server without removing could be over-sized eventually.
