Setting up email
To get email going for your domain or subdomain, you need to set it up on our servers, as well as on your computer. Here's how:

  1. On our server: Once you have set up hosting for your domain, go to the Mail tab of the Account Control Panel to set up a mailbox for holding incoming mail, and aliases to direct the mail to the addresses where you want it to go.

  2. On your computer: Now you need to set up the email program on your computer (Outlook, Netscape, etc.), so you can download the mail from our servers, and read it on your computer.

  3. That's it! You're done! The changes won't take effect immediately. Changes usually take one or more hours yo become active. If it takes longer than 24 hours, please contact technical support. [how do I do that?]
