If you would like to send and receive emails from and to your TimeMaker you need to associate TimeMaker with your email account (like @gmail, @yahoo or others) and then forward emails from your current account or email client to TimeMaker.

If you administrate your own server you would generally need to go to your settings and set up the forwarding. Each server can differ.

Below is a simple example on how to set up forwarding emails to your TimeMaker from Google account (Gmail).

1. Before you get started to find out what your default TimeMaker email is. The simplest way is to open your TimeMaker and click on the “Email button” in the main menu.
