Setting up POP3 Webmail
If you have upgraded your account and added professional webmail these instructions will show you how to set it up.
Upgrading to Professional POP3 Email Service
For those businesses who require more control over their email then upgrading to POP3 webmail is the solution.
A POP3 webmail is used in place of free provider such as BT, Yahoo or Hotmail. You are given access to a powerful control panel that allows you to set up and manage your own email accounts.
Each address can be set up with its own username and pasword. Emails are retreived either via a secure internet login or by connecting to an email client such as Microsoft Outlook.
Setting Up for the first time
When you first upgrade to POP3 webmail you will be sent an email which contains the login information you require to set up your emails.
This email is important and your webmail cannot be set up without it. If you have not received your email within 30 minutes check your spam filter to ensure it has not been mistaken for Spam. if you still haven't received it then you will need to contact us to retreive a copy.
To manage your emails we need to give you full access to your server. This service is intended for confident computer users. Although the operations are not complex it will require you to spend some time configuring your email and learning about the configuration settings.
You will see that a dummy email account has already been set up for you. This account can be used to see how the email should be set up. You may wish todelete it once you are confident you can set the emails up.
