There are several ways of accessing your email account. You can either access email by using the SmarterMail web interface, or you can use an email client such as Microsoft Outlook, or Thunderbird. If you choose to use an email client, you will need to configure it so that it knows what SMTP servers to use for sending messages and what POP servers to use for receiving them. This guide will show you how to set up the web interface email, email client, and the option of using an alias address.
Web Interface Setup
The welcome email you received when you first opened your account contains your login credentials for accessing your email. Once you retrieve this:
An email user is an email address @yourdomain. Email user accounts typically require a user [email protected] followed by a password for login. For all intents and purposes, an email user is its own mailbox account on your domain.
To create an Email User address:
Upon saving the email account, you will be taken to its settings page where you can further configure the user acocunt. For example, you can make the user account an administrator account and change the mailbox size as needed.
An email alias is an email address that forwards messages to a list of email addresses. For example, let's say you setup [email protected] as an alias. You can make it so that any email message that gets sent to [email protected], gets forwarded to a list of other email addresses, such as your personal email address and personal email addresses of anybody that is on your sales team. To create an Alias email address:
Your Email Alias is set up. Add as many as you'd like.
Email Client Setup
