Some users may wish to connect their business email account with their personal Gmail account. This enables the user to gain some of the rich features of Gmail without investing in a premium Gmail for Business account. 

N.B. This configuration results in an unavoidable delay with receiving emails. Gmail’s servers will only automatically check for new messages on your business account on a periodic basis. This is a limitation imposed by Gmail and can only be avoided by upgrading to a premium Google Business account. Please contact us if you would like more information.
