Configuring Domain Email Systems:
Adding a Pop
The difference between private pop mail
accounts, and simply using the "Catch-All" method:
There are two kinds of email address's you can use,
with your email hosting starting with the "catch all" method:
With the catch all method, you don't have to worry
about setting up individual pop mail accounts.
Simply set your email client to your "default" email
address (displayed in C-Panel), and "all" email sent
email@example.com will land in this box,
or whatever you've set your default address to.
This is an easy way to catch all email sent to your
In your Email client,
feel free to configure multiple outgoing accounts at
firstname.lastname@example.org. It really
doesn't matter, as
email@example.com will land in the
default account. Therefore, you would configure all
of your email accounts with the "same" Username and
Password as your "Default domain Email Account."
EXAMPLE: Let's say you
want to receive mail from
firstname.lastname@example.org. If both of these addresses
are the ones you'll be using, then the only thing
that changes is the address - the Username and
Password is "always" the same.
The pop email account
In this case, you
configure a "private" pop email account for one or
many users who will be receiving and sending email
from your domain. Once an email address is
configured as a pop mail account, it operates
privately and independently from your main
standard/default mail system. Any mail sent to a
private pop mail account "can only be received" by
logging into that account with the separate username
and password you have assigned it.
Your default "catch
all" account will not intercept any mail being sent
to a pop mail account, which is what makes it
'private'. Pop 3 accounts are useful if there are a
number of people (for example employees) who would
each need a private email account.
This way, everyone at your company can utilize
private email. The default email address plays a
slightly different role in this case: If a sender
uses the 'wrong' Email name or syntax, then that
message would bounce to your "default catch all"
account, and at which time, you could probably
figure our who the sender was trying to contact.
They do however, have to at least send it to your
correct domain name, (i'e',
email@example.com). This would end up in your
Email Hosting How to configure a pop
1. Login to C-Panel
2. Select "Add/Remove
3. Select "Add Account"
4. Enter an email name
5. Select "Create"
Just enter a name, (the @yourdomain
part is added automatically)
That's it, done! Your
private pop 3 email account is now ready for use. If
you're a little lost on how to manually configure an
email account into your mail reader, please see the
detailed tutorials on how to configure Outlook and
Netscape mail readers.
If you've enabled
Sub-Domains, you'll observe a duplicate email
account appearing, which corresponds to each
sub-domain you've added. Please ignore these
duplicate addresses for the time being. This is a
new feature under development and will soon enable
the ability to configure email accounts for your
sub-domains. For example, if you configured
support.yourdomain.com, then you'll be able to use
For the time being,
please configure email address's that correspond to
your "regular" domain, and just
ignore the sub-domain duplicates. ALSO: Any
duplicate sub-domain email address's you see
appearing in your pop mail setup configuration "DO
NOT" count towards your allocated number of pop mail
boxes we've provided. In short, just ignore them
for now :-)
