Setting up e-mail once my site has gone live on a BluDomain server


EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN SETTING UP YOUR NEW E-MAILS.

** Remember to set up your e-mail first (this is very important or you will not receive any e-mails)
** Your Hosting Information e-mail will be sent at the same time you receive this print it out or save it for future reference
** On your hosting information sheet it explains how to access your control panel.  Once logged into your control panel about 4-5 rows down there is an icon that says Web Stats this is where you can check your statistics for your website.

 
HOW DO I SET UP MY E-MAIL?

1. Locate the e-mail that was sent to you with your Cpanel information titled "Hosting Information"
2. You can access your Cpanel by going to your website address and then typing /cpanel at the end of it. For example:   www.yoursiteaddress.com/cpanel .   
3. From here a password entry box will pop up where you will be required to input the username and password provided to you on your Hosting Information sheet.  
4. The first icon entitled "mail" is the one you will go to, to set-up e-mail accounts- click on the mail Icon, then select manage/add/remove accounts and click on it.
5. At the bottom of the screen you will see that thereis an add account button- once you click on it you will be able to create your new e-mail account
6. Once you enter the e-mail account you will see that you can edit the password and the quota- set your password to whatever you like and change the quota from 10 MB to 100 MB.  We recommend that you give each account 50 MB
7.  Your e-mail accounts are now set up! Congratulations. (hehe)

WEB MAIL ACCESS

1. You can access your web mail from anywhere by entering your website address with /web mail and the end of it (for example: http://www.yoursiteaddress.com/webmail < http://www.yoursiteaddress.com/webmail > )  You will be prompted to enter a username. IMPORTANT: the username is your full e-mail address.  The e-mail address is the one that you are checking and the corresponding password for that e-mail account- once you have filled this information in click on the log in button. Once you enter the web mail interface you will have a choice of 2 web mail programs (Horde or Squirrel mail) - simply choose one, they all have similar functionality with different interface styles.  From here you will be able to check e-mails and attachments.    It is important that you do not let the web mail get too full because storing e-mails will take up a lot of web space.
