This guide has been created in order to help you get started using email with your hosting account.

First you need to create a MAIL BOX on the mail server.

Next, you need to add an EMAIL ACCOUNT to the device you are using to connect to the server.

The type of EMAIL ACCOUNT you create will depend on which EMAIL PROTOCOL you want to use:

  • IMAP Protocol - which means your incoming and outgoing mail is stored on the server, regardless of which device you use to connect to the mail server;
  • POP Protocol - which means incoming and outgoing mail is stored on the device you are using to connect to the mail server.

Most users opt for IMAP simply because they use a wide range of devices to connect to the mail server at any one time.
