Control Panel : E-Mail Account Management
Login to the control panel with your login information provided with
your Welcome email.
Navigate to the Mailboxes section, which is located under
Hosting Features > E-mail on the navigation menu.
The Mailboxes section provides these controls:
- Create, edit, and delete mailboxes.
- Set a disk quota per mailbox and view current disk space usage.
- Define a single "Copy To" address for all incoming messages.
- Define a vacation auto-responder message.
To create a new mailbox, use the form at the top of the Mailboxes section.
Specify the name of the new mailbox. The control panel automatically
appends the domain name, so only enter the part of the email address before
the @ sign. For example, to create the email address
only type you into the E-mail Address field.
Enter a Password and then again in the
Confirm Password field. Always pick
a strong password, preferrably with letters, numbers, at least one symbol,
and at least 8 characters in length. Do not use a dictionary word or any
information that may be commonly known.
A Disk Space Quota is highly
recommended. If your hosting account has a global disk space quota, then it
is important to set mailbox limits so your account does not run out of space
due to individual users allowing their email to consume all of the account's
The Send Copy to field allows all email sent to
the account to also be copied to a single valid Internet email address.
A list of existing mailboxes is located below the form for adding a new mailbox.
This list shows an overview of your existing mailboxes and provides links to
Edit or Delete each mailbox.
The Edit link from the mailbox list loads the Edit Mailbox form for a specified mailbox.
The Edit Mailbox form provides all the properties of the Add Mailbox form
plus additional features that are only useful for existing accounts.
The Vacation Message is a response that is auto-replied to all incoming emails
so senders know that you are unable to respond to your messages at this time.
For example, a typical Vacation Message might read:
I am out of the office until _/_/_. If your issue is time sensitive,
please resend your message to email@example.com.
Note: Be sure the On Vacation
setting is set to Yes to use the Vacation
The Delete link from the mailbox list deletes a specified mailbox.
CAUTION: Mailbox deletion is permanent! All
messages stored in the mailbox will be deleted and the users of the mailbox
will no longer be able to send or receive email at that address.
