Select unsecured connection sending mail
Label incoming messages - Check the box if you’d like to easily see which emails in your inbox came from this account.
Archive incoming messages - Don’t check. Only check if you don’t want to see new messages from the other account in your inbox.
Click Add Account. If you get an error message while getting set up, click the Show error details link to find out more about what’s not working.
Once your account has been added successfully, you'll be asked if you want to be able to send mail as this address. This lets you compose messages in Gmail, but have them appear to be sent from your other email account.
