How to configure your email address

Opinion | Web

Once we set up your website on your unique domain you will most likely be wanting to use your new email addresses. There are two ways you can access your custom email addresses.

Option 1: Webmail

go to www.< yourdomain >.com.au/webmail
You will be prompted for your username and password
username is your FULL email address, for example info@yourdomain.com.au
password will be supplied to you once your addresses have been set up

Once logged in you will be asked to select which email client you would like to use. The options are Horde, Roundcube or SquirrelMail. Each is quite similar, feel free to use them all to decide which one you like best.

Option 2: Desktop Email Client running on your computer

You can set your email account to run in one of the many desktop email clients such as Windows Mail or Mozilla Thunderbird. These set up’s slightly differ from client to client and there are literally hundreds out there. In all cases you will only require the four pieces of information below….

Mail Server Username: < your full email address >
Password: < to be supplied once address is setup >
Incoming Mail Server: mail.yourdomain.com.au
Outgoing Mail Server: mail.yourdomain.com.au (server requires authentication) port 26

As there are so many different versions of Desktop Email Clients out there, we simply cannot know how to set up every one. Below is a few help guides to the most recent versions of the three most popular.
