Sending and Receiving Mail
Sending and receiving mail is not executed in the Control Panel. The mail manager tools and utilities available in the Control Panel are merely ways of setting up mail accounts and lists on the server on which your account resides. To send or receive mail, use your normal mail client configured to retrieve mail from, and send mail through, your domain mail account.
Two popular e-mail programs are Eudora and Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express. The procedures that follow briefly describe how to
configure these programs to work with your e-mail account. Once configured, you will be able to use these programs to send and receive mail.
In the mail programs being discussed, there are many different configuration options and settings you can change in order to
customize the mail client for personal use. These additional features are not covered in the procedures below. For more information on these features, consult your mail
program's documentation or help menus.
If your email program is not listed here...
It should be fairly simple to setup your email account regardless of which program you are using. Just make sure you have
all this information correct:
Mail host: yourdomain.com or mail.yourdomain.com
*Note Email username on these servers is email@example.com
Password: Your password
POP Server: yourdomain.com
SMTP server: Your ISP's SMTP server
SMTP Server Note:
If you can't use your isp's smtp server, you will be able to use yourdomain.com, provided you read about the
restrictions on using the smtp server.
