E-mail Software Setup

Once you have clicked on the Mail Manger in your control panel and set up your e-mail accounts, you will need to configure your e-mail client to send and receive mail.

The settings for your outgoing and incoming POP3 server are both:
mail.yourdomain.com where yourdomain is your domain name.

You may access your e-mail at any time, from any computer, by typing in http://www.yourdomain.com/up (up = user panel)

Simply login with your e-mail username and password.

For your convenience, we have included directions for setting up an account using some of the more popular third-party e-mail programs.

Microsoft Outlook Express Email Settings:

1. After loading Outlook Express, choose Tools --> Accounts
2. Be sure the "Mail" tab is clicked on the top of the pop-up box, and choose Add --> Mail from the options at the right.
3. The Internet Connection Wizard should start and ask you to enter your display name. Enter the name you want people to see in the From column in their e-mail program, and click Next.
4. Enter your e-mail address in the appropriate box and click Next. (yourname@yourdomain.com)
5. The incoming mail server should have POP3 selected, and the Incoming and Outgoing servers are mail.yourdomain.com where yourdomain is your domain name. Click Next. 
6. Enter your account name and password. If your e-mail address is bob@bobsworld.com, then the account name is bob and the password is whatever you set it up to be in the Mail Manager of your Control Panel. Click Next, and then Finish.You will now be able to use your e-mail account. Follow these steps to set up additional accounts through your domain.

Microsoft Outlook Email Settings:

1. After loading Outlook, choose Tools --> Services

2. Click Add, and choose Internet E-Mail. Click OK.

3. In the General tab of the email Properties dialog box, fill in your
personal information.

4. Click on the Servers tab, and fill in the server information. The Incoming and Outgoing server settings should be mail.yourdomain.com where yourdomain is your domain name. Put in your mailbox username in the account name field, and the password below. Click OK.

5. Your new settings will not take effect until you choose Exit and Log off on the File menu, and then restart Microsoft Outlook.

Eudora Lite Email Settings:

Eudora is a mail program that runs under MS Windows and Macintosh OS. Eudora connects to the mail server over the Winsock or Macintosh TCP/IP. Mail may be composed and read off line, but make sure that Winsock or TCP/IP is running before attempting to send or receive email. Although your account exists on our server, you won't be able to receive email at yourname@yourdomain.com until your domain name becomes live on the WWW.

After Eudora has been installed, it must be configured to point to your server. To do this, start Eudora and select "Settings" from the menu bar. Most of the options are self explanatory. Here are the steps you need to perform to set up Eudora:

1. Install and start up the Eudora program

2. Select "Settings" from the "Special" menu

3. Select the "Getting Started" tab, then under Real Name, enter your Real Name.

4. Under "POP Account" put your email address.

5. Leave Return Address blank unless you want people to send return email to you at a different email account. 

6. If you use the Macintosh version, the radio button for TCP/IP connection should be highlighted.

7. Click the "Personal Information" tab (also only for the Macintosh) 

8. Under POP account put your email address again.

9. Fill out the "Real Name" and "Return Address" as you did before

10. Under "Dial up User Name" enter your username.

11. Click the "Hosts" tab then enter your domain information as described above (mail.yourdomain.com)

12. Go to the "Checking Mail" tab and make sure "Save Password" is checked. (Unless other people use your machine and you don't want them to be able to check your e-mail)

That's pretty much all the configuration Eudora needs. Many of the configuration areas will be filled in when you go to them, for instance it will usually fill in the POP account info where ever it needs it after you enter it the first time. Now, when you select "Check Mail" under the File menu, a window will pop up asking for your password. Enter in your password then click on the proceed button and Eudora will check to see if you have email. You can now send a test email message to yourself and then check to see if it gets returned to you. If you checked "Save Password" as in step 12, Eudora will not prompt you again for your password after the first time. If multiple users have access to your computer, and you don't want them to have access to your email account, make sure "Save Password" is unchecked.

Once you have completed the above steps, you can now send email from your email client. The next step would be to create multiple accounts using your email accounts that you have created with your domain.
