Setting Up Email Accounts
For instructions on creating and deleting email accounts
, or you may visit
and select the "Mail" tab on the left
menu. Next click on the "Adding email accounts" link for detailed
instructions. A tip is to clear the quota field, which defaults at 10 megs.
Clearing this will allow users to email without a monthly limit per account.
You can set up your email using Outlook Express or any other mail client
using these settings:
POP Server: mail.yourdomain.com
SMTP Server: mail.yourdomain.com or the SMTP server of your ISP.
(we recommend using the SMTP of your ISP for trouble free sending)
Note that your username will be your full email address (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Under the "Advanced" tab on your email account properties in Outlook
Express, be sure to change the Server Port Number for the Outgoing mail
(SMTP) from "25" to "26". Our mail ports are set to 26 because many ISPs
block port 25 to protect their users from spammers.
