Outgoing Email from Gmail Application


I’ve setup my gmail integration with ERPNext. If the right contact is added to my supplier, I can send outgoing email from ERPNext and it will get captured in the supplier name. However, I’ve noticed I can’t use my actual Gmail to send email since it won’t be synced with ERPNext. Is there a workaround / how are people typically using email in ERPNext. I’ve found email/communication to be incredibly useless since it will get captured under very very few circumstances.

Thank you for the advice and help.
