Use Gmail to Filter a Different Email Address

Want to use your own domain email address and still have the great spam protection Gmail provides, free? If you already have a Gmail account, you're in luck. Shawn Hogan from DigitalPoint actually started filtering his various corporate email accounts through the gmail mail server. Shawn used many types of spam detection and filtering systems to block unwanted email but for some reason, he still receives 2000+ spam emails daily. This simply was not working. Shawn thought of the idea of using gmail to filter his email address. It works.

How does it work?
Forward all email to gmail, access the gmail email via POP in his client side email program, and send email from his corporate email addresses like he normally would. He doesn?t touch gmail.
