Final Note

To pull email from your custom account, Gmail uses the something called POP3 protocol; which means that emails sent to this account will take a bit more to show up compared to the original client you were using for this address. Additionally, any action you take for this account via the Gmail client won’t be synced to the original client you were using – sent messages, deleted messages, read messages etc.
