The Mail Manager is located in the control panel of your account. This is where you can set up new mail accounts, forward your mail, change the password for your mail account, etc..
The first step is to log into your control panel and then select the mail manager icon.
In the following instructions we'll assume that your domain is called yourdomain.com .
If you have the basic hosting account with one email address, you are not stuck with the name of the default email account. You can delete the default email account and then create a new one to your liking. Or, if you would like to keep this account and change the password you can do that as well.
Adding a new account
Once in the mail manager you will see several links on the left side of the window. Select the one that says New Address . You will then be prompted for a username and password.
For the user name, enter only the name of the new email account. For example, if you want to add an email account for [email protected] you would simply enter sales for the user name. (The rest of the address will be added automatically.)
Next, enter the password that will allow you to access this email account. This will be the password you use no matter how you access your email (whether it is through Outlook, Eudora, our Web-based email, or any other email client).
Changing your password
You can change the password on any existing account. First, select the name of the email account with the password you want to change. (There will be a list of email accounts on the left.) Suppose you have chosen sales . This will bring up configuration page for the sales account. Choose the link that says Change password for [email protected] . This will prompt you for the new password and will ask you to confirm it.How will you check your email?
The next step in configuring your mail is to determine how you are going to check the mail for each mail account you have created. Are you going to check the mail in this account directly, or are you going to have it forwarded to an existing email address (aol, hotmail, etc.)? Once you know what you want to do, select the appropriate forwarding options.
Select the mail account you want to configure. This will take you to the mail configuration page for that mailbox. On this page you will see three "Forwarding" options. This is how they work. Again, let's suppose you are configuring the email account sales .
Note: this part of the configuration is best done once you have already added all the email accounts you are going to use in your domain.
Choose this option if you want an email sent to everyone who sends an email to the account you are configuring. For example, you might want every message to sales to automatically return a message that says "Thank you for your order". Check the box and then put your message in the response.
Every email client requires certain information in order function correctly. The following is general information that the typical email client will need. If your email client requires information not shown here, please contact [email protected] to request the specific information.
The second thing to specify is the name of the incoming mail server. You have two options here it can be your domain name:
Or it can be your IP address: 184.108.40.206
Should you find that your ISP will not provide you with this information or that they don't support SMTP servers, contact [email protected] for alternative solutions.
Here are the steps for configuring Eudora (version 5). For these instructions we'll assume that we are configuring Eudora for the email address [email protected] .
The Set Up Menu
Open your Eudora application. From the menu bar choose Tools . Scroll to the bottom of the tools menu and select Options . In the options window you will see a series of categories on the left side.
Choose the first category in the
Options window--it is called

will see several boxes in which you can input information for the
While you are still in the Options window, scroll down the categories from Getting Started to Incoming Mail . You can also select to have mail removed from the server when Eudora downloads the mail. You can check the relevant box to leave the mail on the server. Or you can configure Eudora to delete the mail on the server after a certain number of days.
The sample assumes a domain name of yourname.com
Full name = yourname
Included here are the basic steps for configuring Microsoft Outlook 2000 to send and receive email with your account.
In these instructions, let's suppose that you are configuring Outlook Express for the email account [email protected]
Open Outlook Express. Find the Tools menu at the top of the window and select it. In the pulldown menu select accounts .
In the set of options under accounts choose the option add and then choose mail . This will activate the Internet Connection Wizard.
