1) Log into Gmail and click on the Gear icon, then select Settings. Go to the Account tab on the Settings page. 

2) Next to the "Check mail from other accounts (using POP3)" option, click on "Add a POP3 mail account you own". 

3) Enter the mailbox's email address. and click Next to get to the settings page. The settings should be: 

Username: the entire email address 
Password: the mailbox password 
POP Server: mail.example.com (where example.com is your domain name) 
Port: 110 

If you want to use other mail clients to access the mailbox then you should tick the box for "Leave a copy of retrieved message on the server". Otherwise the box should remain unticked or your mailbox would fill up with email

4) Click on Save. Gmail will now start downloading the emails from your mailbox

5) Next to the "Send mail as" option, click on "Add another email address you own".

If you select the latter option you will need to enter some extra settings: 

SMTP Server: mail.example.com (where example.com is your domain name) 
Port: 587 
Username: the entire email address 
Password: Your mailbox password
