To get your external emails INTO gmail there are 2 options:

2) Forward is instant. — Recommended
You can either look up POP3 settings when you login to your hosting provider or just search for it on Google: e.g. POP3 settings for go daddy.
I’m going to show you how to set up forward in 1and1 and siteground.
Send emails USING your company domain:
Click on Add another email address you own
You can find the port and SMTP server settings through the admin cpanel. Or just search for it on Google.
Make sure you set reply from the same address the message was sent to.

I highly recommend you use ONE email account and don’t setup multiple as jumping from one inbox to another is a waste of time.
