Using Google Calendar with your email

I’ve now been using for my emails for the past few months and I have to say that I haven’t really missed Gmail.

However, what I have missed is being able to use Google calendar a good calendar integration.

When people would send me invites to my email I would have to go into Gmail and add the events to my Google calendar.

I came across a few solutions that involved creating a new Google account with your email address, however I wanted to keep my existing Google account and calendar and not create a separate one for my email.

This guide will help you setup your email as an alias for your existing Google account, so anyone can send you a calendar invite to your email and it will automatically show up on your Google calendar.

You can add your hey email as an alternative email to your gmail account and any google calendar invites sent to your email will appear as if your gmail was invited. 


Step 1. Go to your Google Account Settings at

Step 2. Click on Personal Info on the left and click on Email in the Contact Info section.

Step 3. You should see a section called Alternative emails. Add your email to this.

Step 4. Now navigate to Google Calendar and click on Settings in the top right.

Step 5. Click on your name under Settings for my calendars in the left nav.

Step 6. Scroll down to Other notifications, and check the box that says Allow responding to invitations forwarded through alternative email addresses.

That’s it. Now people can send you calendar invites to your email address and it’ll show up on your existing Google calendar.
