Mail Manager and Mail Lists

MAIL MANAGER:

You can access your Mail Manager by going to your Control Panel:

http://www.yourdomainname.com/cpanel

Inside this area you can setup all of your email items...like auto-responders, forwarded mail, and pop accounts.

Once you've accessed your Control Panel, click on Mail Manager and then click on the email account you wish to edit. This area is self-explanatory but we've included instructions below.

How to Add Email Accounts and Email Aliases
To receive email, your domain registration or transfer should be complete. You will know it's complete if you can access www.your-domain/cpanel

To add an email account:
(An email account gives you a unique email address. If you add an account called JOHN, then JOHN@yourdomain.com will have a unique mailbox.)

-Go to your Control Panel at www.yourdomain.com/cpanel
-Click on Mail Manager
-Select "New Address" on the bottom
-Enter the username, password and click "Add"
-That user has been added. To check email for that user, see Setting up a Mail Program

To Add an Email Alias
(If your primary account is JOHN@yourdomain.com but you also want to receive email at JOHNSMITH@yourdomain.com, then you add an alias for JOHNSMITH to forward to JOHN)

We assume you have already created a primary account such as JOHN
Next, follow the instructions in the section above for adding a new account
After adding the new second account such a JOHNSMITH, click on that account name on the left side of your screen
Check both boxes as shown below if you want to have 2 copies of the email, one in the original email box, and one forwarded to the primary account. If you don't need 2 copies, you don't need to check the first box.
Select the Primary user who should receive the email for this alias
Now anything sent to JOHNSMITH@yourdomain.com will be forwarded to JOHN@yourdomain.com
Other Forwarding Options

There are many options for forwarding mail. For example, you could setup forwarding as:

box1 ---> box1, box2 (both boxes get a copy)
or
box1 ---> box1, box2, box@aol.com
or
box1 --> box2, box3

Special restrictions:
If you setup box1 to forward to an outside address, such as box@aol.com and a box within your domain such as box2, you must include box1 also:

YES: box1 ---> box1, box2, box@aol.com
NO: box1 --> box2, box@aol.com (must include box1)

In addition, you can't have double forwarding:

NO: box1 -->box2 ---> box3
YES: box1 --> box2, box3

You can allow your users to change their own passwords without bothering you each time they would like to change them.
