|How do I add a new email address?
||Category: Email Support
I need to know how to add more email addresses
(A new email address will be refered to as any of these terms "mailbox", "New User", "Account", "Email Address")
[These instructions are to setup a basic email address there are
advanced options such as multiple aliases, responders and forwarding.
Please see those FAQ's for those options]
To add email mailboxes you need to log into the email server using the
administrar address with the default email username supplied in your
(replace yourdomain.com with your domain name)
Log in using your "FULL" default email address located in your setup email.
(DO NOT CHANGE OR DELETE THE DEFAULT EMAIL ADDRESS IT IS YOUR ADMINITRATIVE USERNAME IN THE EMAIL SERVER)
Once your in the administrative site you can add mailboxes using the following procedure:
1. Click the "New User" link on the left side.
2. In the alias box put in the email address you wish. Example if you
wanted to make a sales email address put in the word sales (do not
include the @ and the domain name)
3. supply a username. this will become the login for this mailbox. I
suggest using the same name as the alias. in this case put in the word
(note: if your making multiple email accounts "DO NOT" use the same
username in all of them it must be a different username per account.)
4. supply a password for this account
5. confirm the password
6. keep the type as "POP3"
7. keep the State as "Enabled"
8. Click the OK button to save the new email address.
There are additional tabs "Mailbox", "Options" etc. these will be explained in seperate FAQ topics.
To have your emails forwarded to a different email address such as the
email address your ISP's gave you please carefully read the FAQ on "How
to Forward Your Email" NOT NOT jsut use the "Forward to" box in the add
user section it's more detailed than that.
