All three of these servers need to be listed in your Domain Name Registration record. This is done automatically if you register the domain name through us. If the domain name is not registered through us, you must have these servers put into your record.
We have a virtual mail system that allows users to control their own e-mail. Once their domain is created it is accessed via http://mailadmin.domainname.com/. The administrator needs to login with the following information:
Password: Their account password
Domain: Their domain name (domainname.com) (no www)
Individual users can also logon with their username and password to control their own account.
When setting up a mail account their are a couple of options to choose
Catchall Bounced -- All mail that is not addressed to a valid account will be bounced
Catchall Deleted -- All mail that is not addressed to a valid account will be silently deleted
Remote Catchall -- All mail that is not addressed to a valid account will be forwarded to a remote e-mail box (please tell us where)
Default -- All mail that is not addressed to a valid account goes to the postmaster mailbox
If they don't have their mail forwarded to another account, users need to setup their pop accounts with the following information
Incoming Mail server -- pop.domainname.com
Outgoing Mail Server -- mail.dommainname.com
Username -- user%domainname.com (or postmaster%domianname.com if they chose option default)(note user@domainname will also work for all clients except Eudora)
Password -- Their Password
Our Vmail servers also support Webmail available at http://webmail.domainname.com/. Since this is a new feature it is enabled on a go forward basis.
If you have an existing account that you would like enabled, please let us know and we will be happy to set it up for you
