6. Select the Remove from server after and type in a value of however many days you’s like. The example shows 7 days. This will tell the Mail Server to download all Email messages to your computer but only leave a copy of the messages on the server for a certain number of days. This allows people who want to read their messages at work but also download them for permanent storage on their home computer. We recommend that you choose the smallest number of days that suits your needs. The longer you leave messages on your Mail Server, the greater the risk of filling-up your Mail Server and exceeding your mailbox size quota.

How to use Webmail

From time to time, you may have a need to use your Webmail facility.

This may because you need to access your email whilst using someone else’s computer, or you may be having an issue with your email service and you want to test it to see if it’s working.

Using Webmail is very easy. Simply visit www.yourdomain.com.au/webmail (where “yourdomain.com.au” is substituted with your actual Domain Name).

This will present a screen where you are required to enter your Username and Password.

Webmail Login

Enter your email address as the Username, and whatever Password you chose when you setup your email address, and then click “Log in”.

Once you have done this, you will be presented with the following screen.

Webmail Roundcube

You have three options to choose from. They all do the same thing, but just look different. I personally prefer “RoundCube”, so that’s what we’ll run with.

After clicking on RoundCube, you will see the Webmail interface and the Inbox, with any emails that are waiting.

Webmail Roundcube Inbox

From here, it is pretty much like using any email program, so I won’t go into the nitty gritty’s.

Suffice to say that you can perform all of the same functions as you can with any email program.

How to setup an email address in cPanel

The first step is to log into your Web Hosting account, the interface is known as cPanel.

To log-in, enter http://www.yourdomain.com.au/cpanel into your Internet Browser’s navigation bar (where “yourdomain.com.au” is substituted with your actual Domain Name).

This will present a screen where you are required to enter your Username and Password.

cPanel Log-in

This information was sent to you via Email when you signed up for Web Hosting.

Should you need this information to be sent again, please email us at [email protected]

Once inside the cPanel system, click on the ‘Email Accounts’ icon, located near the top of the cPanel page, in the section named “Mail”. This will take you to the Email account screen where you can add/delete/modify email accounts.

cPanel Email

To create a new email account simply fill in the necessary form fields as described below:

Email: Enter the prefix for your email. For example “info” or “admin” etc.

Password: Enter the password that you wish to use for this account. You will need to enter it twice to indicate that you haven’t mistyped it. You can also use the “Password Generator” button next to the Strength Indicator, which will automatically create a password for you. Just remember that the password is randomly generated and although very secure, it can be difficult to remember!

Mailbox Quota: Enter the total amount of megabytes that you want the mail account to have. If you ignore this field, the default value of 250MB will be used. Or you can choose “Unlimited”.

Click “Create Account” to immediately activate the account.

The email account will be active immediately and you can start sending and receiving email with it.

You can do that via webmail by visiting www.yourdomain.com.au/webmail, or by setting up an email client to use the email address.

Using Webmail and setting up an email clients is a different topic of conversation.
