Login into your hosting account.  Either:

 

https://youdomain.com:8443 (if your domain is active or https://67.215.161.119:8443 if not)

 

Creating Mailboxes

Ø To create a mailbox:

1 Go to Domains > domain name > Create Mail Account.

2 The domain name is shown to the right of @ sign, so you only need to specify the desired name for the mailbox.

 

This can be, for example, user‘s first name and last name separated by a dot, a department name, or any other text in Latin symbols. The name should be short enough to remember. It can comprise alphanumeric, dash dot and underscore symbols.

3 Specify a password that mailbox owner will use for accessing his or her mailbox.

4 Specify the settings related to the appearance of user's control panel, if desired: interface language, theme (skin), the limit on number of characters that can appear on custom buttons placed into the control panel by the mailbox owner.

5 Leave the Allow multiple sessions check box selected to allow the mailbox owner to have several simultaneous sessions in the control panel.

6 Leave the Prevent users from working with the control panel until interface screens are completely loaded check box selected.

 

This will forbid users from submitting data or performing operations until the control panel is ready to accept them.

 

7 Make sure that a check mark is present in the Mailbox check box. If required, limit the amount of disk space that this mailbox and it's autoresponder attachment files can use. To do this, under Mailbox quota select the Enter size option and type the desired value in kilobytes. Click OK.

8 To allow the mailbox owner to log in to control panel for managing his or her mail account, click Permissions, click the Select all shortcut and click OK.

Accessing Your Mail From a Web Browser

You can read your mail and compose new messages even if you are far from your home or office computer. To do this, you first need to allow access to the webmail interface that is integrated with your control panel. Then you can work with your mail from any computer with Internet connection and Web browser installed, or a WAP-enabled cellular phone or a handheld computer (PDA).

Ø To allow access to the Webmail interface:

1 Go to Domains > domain name > Mail group title menu > Mail Settings.

2 From the Webmail menu, select the webmail program that you want to use.

3 Click OK.

 

Note: Activation and deactivation of webmail for your domain involves modifications in DNS zone, therefore, there is actually a certain delay present when activating and deactivating webmail due to the speed of DNS registration mechanisms.

Ø To access your mailbox through webmail:

1 Open a Web browser (or a WAP browser, if you are using a handheld device), and type the URL: http://webmail.your-domain.com, where your-domain.com is the name of your domain. Press ENTER. The webmail login screen will open.

2 Type the user name and password that you specified during creation of your mailbox and click Log in.
