Congratulations, you have now created your email address on the server, it will start accepting any emails sent to it with in moments. You can now either create additional mail boxes if you spare accounts, or move onto reading your email. Articles for this can be found here.

Spam Filtering - We provide basic spam and virus filtering with all accounts, you only need to apply personal settings via the spam filter tab if you want tougher criteria applied to inbound mail or to block a specific address. For more details on configuring your personal spam filter settings, see the article here.

Redirects - You can also configure redirects to forward a copy of your email onto a separate email address via the forwarding tab. If you do this but don't want to keep a copy of the original on our servers, be sure to untick the mail box option for this account.

Auto-reply - you can also configure your account to automatically reply when someone sends you an email. For example, to send them an out of office notification or an acknowledgement that you have received their email and will attend to it in a certain amount of time.

Click save and it's all done. You have now created your new mail box on the server. See notes below for reading your email.

Note: Extra mail boxes can be added to your account at any time. Just click on product upgrade from the product details page.
