Testing the Connection

To ensure everything is set up correctly, send an email to your Hostinger address and check if it appears in your Gmail inbox. If there’s a delay, remember that Gmail initially checks for new emails at longer intervals to prevent server strain. This interval will decrease as Gmail detects more frequent email activity.

Troubleshooting Common Issues

If your Hostinger emails aren’t appearing in your Gmail inbox immediately, don’t worry. Gmail’s initial delay in fetching new emails is designed to prevent unnecessary strain on your Hostinger server. As Gmail detects more frequent email activity, it will start checking for new messages more often.

You can encourage Gmail to fetch emails more frequently by subscribing to newsletters or services that send daily emails. This increased activity will prompt Gmail to check for new messages more frequently.

By following these steps, you can successfully forward your Hostinger email to Gmail, making it easier to manage all your emails in one place.
