When it comes to building a website, our policy here at Jimdo is to make it as easy as possible. This means offering as many options as we can and staying flexible so we cater to the variety of people who use our websites, from small businesses to travel bloggers.
That’s why today we’re happy to announce more email options. Now you can use your domain with your own professional G Suite or Microsoft Office 365 Account, following the quick steps below. That way you can integrate tools you already use, streamline your accounts, and get access to a whole set of productivity apps.
If you don’t have G Suite or Microsoft Office 365 yet, just follow the steps below and you’ll have a chance to create a new account.
What are G Suite and Microsoft Office 365?
G Suite and Microsoft Office 365 are business versions of the normal Gmail or Microsoft email accounts. If you’re looking for more control over your email and more options than what’s included in our regular Jimdo email, these services are a great choice.
They both allow you to create customized group email addresses for your business, so everyone has their own professional email account e.g “email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org” etc. You’ll also get more control over the email accounts and files. In addition to email, these accounts give you access to other productivity tools and apps for your business like Google Docs and Excel.
For pricing details and more information, here’s a side-by-side comparison of the two services to see which one might be right for you.
How can I add my G Suite or Microsoft Office 365 email to my account?
It’s super easy to create or connect your chosen account, just follow these 3 steps:
Log in to your Jimdo website, open your menu and select Settings > Domains & Email > Domains.
Click on the domain that you want to add your G Suite or Microsoft Office 365 email to. Then choose your preferred email option (G Suite, Microsoft Office 365 or Jimdo Mail).
Choose your email provider and click on “Login to Office 365” (for example). This will then open a window where you can log in to your existing Microsoft Office 365 or G Suite account, which will automatically be connected to your website. You also have the option of creating a new G Suite or Microsoft Office 365 account and adding it to your domain.
Can I switch from Jimdo Mail to G Suite or Microsoft Office 365?
Of course you have the option to switch! Just make sure that you create your G Suite or Microsoft Office 365 email account first. Then all you have to do is manually export all your Jimdo Mail emails and import them to your new G Suite or Microsoft Office 365 account.
Your Jimdo mail won’t be deleted, you’ll still be able to access it. However, sending and receiving emails won’t work anymore. Once your domain email address is registered with G Suite or Microsoft Office 365 then we recommend deleting your Jimdo Mail account.
