Your Email Account
We recommend you use Microsoft Outlook Express,
of if you have MS Office, use Outlook. Netscape Messenger is another
good option. Outlook Express comes free with Internet Explorer
(preferred browser) and Messenger comes free with Netscape. If you use
AOL, we can have your domain name mail forwarded to your AOL account,
though it is recommended you use your AOL account on your site.
Setup for Outlook2000 (Other versions and Messenger
is somewhat similar)
Step 1: Go to the "Tools" menu, and
choose "Accounts". Select "Add" and then
Step 2: Enter a name you want others to see when
they get your email. This name appears when you send email to other
people who read mail in any POP email application. Click
Step 3: Enter your email address. You can choose
any email address you want @yourdomain.com. All email addresses
at your domain are sent to your email box, thus you can post many
different addresses on your site such as firstname.lastname@example.org,
email@example.com, etc. Click "Next".
Step 4: The mail server is a POP3 server. The
incoming and outgoing mail servers are "yourdomain.com".
Step 5: Enter the username and password you were
given upon registration. If people (who you do not want to read the
email) do not have access to your computer, you can keep "Remember
Password" checked. If you uncheck this box, Outlook will prompt
you for your password every time you check mail. Click
Step 6: If you dial up to the Internet, and then
check your mail, select "Connect using the LAN". This
is the usual option for most people. If you want to dial up each time
you check mail, select connect through the phone line.
