Create a New Email Address

This tutorial will show you how to setup a New Email Address.


In this example, we are creating an email address named john@johndoe.com

 

Step 1: Click on the Accounts icon

 

 

 

 

Step 2: Click on the Create Mail Account button

 

 

 

 

Step 3: Fill out the Mail Account Properties page:

1) E-mail Address: type the first part of the email address you want to create (the part that comes before the @ symbol)
2) Select your domain name from the drop down menu
3) Password: type a secure password
4) Confirm Password: Type the same password again

Secure Password Requirements:  Must contain at least 8 characters, 1 uppercase letter, 1 lowercase letter, 1 number and 1 special character or symbol.  Must not contain any part of your email address, name, domain, business name.  Instead of using words that can be found in a dictionary, we recommend replacing some letters with symbols or numbers, for example:  P@s$w0rd vs. Password.  Complex passwords provide a higher level of security.  We also recommend changing your password at least once per year, or more frequently for added protection.

 

 

 

 

Step 4: (Optional) Enter your first and last name. 

This will be the displayed on all outgoing messages (what recipients see).

 

 

 

 

Step 5: If these fields are left blank, only your email address will be shown on outgoing messages.

 

 

 

 

Step 6: If you would like to include a title or credentials, type it into the Last Name box.

 

 

 

 

Step 7: If the email address is a general office address, type the business name or anything else that you want to associate with the address into the First Name box.

 

 

 

 

Step 8: Other Optional Settings:

 

 

 

 


Step 9: Click Save at the bottom of the page.
 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 10: You will see your new email address as a blue link on the Mail Accounts page.

  • To change the password, edit display name or delete the account, simply click on the blue address link to access its settings.
  • Do not click the check-box to select the address - just click the address itself.
