Creating a POP email account so that you may send and receive emails at you@yoursite.com

Basic Instructions

Note: All hosting plans come with a default POP email account already set up for you. The email address is your_username@yourdomain.com where your_username is the username assigned to you in your Welcome Email.
  1. Login to your CPanel account at http://www.yourdomain.com/cpanel
  2. Click on the Mail icon.
  3. Click on the Add/Remove Accounts link.
  4. You will see all your existing email accounts listed.
  5. Click on the Add Account link at the bottom.
  6. In the Email input box enter the name for the new email account.
  7. Make sure the correct domain name is selected in the drop down box.
  8. In the Password input box enter a password for the email account.
  9. You can optionally specify how much disk quota (disk space) to allocate to the email account. The default is 10 megabytes.
  10. Click the Create button.
  11. Upon successful account creation you will be presented with a new page listing the details of your new account. You should make a note of the details for later use.
  12. Click the Go Back link at the bottom.
  13. You will now be back to the Add/Remove Accounts page where you should see your new account listed. This page will allow you to delete the account, read your email via the web, change the disk quota, change the password, and also see the current disk space usage.
You can now use the email account with your favourite email program. See the knowledge base for instructions on setting up an account with Outlook Express.
