How do I connect to my email account?


There are a couple of methods for doing this.
The easiest is to log into your control panel, click on "POP email accounts", and then click on the autoconfig link next to the account you want to set up in Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express (assuming you use one of these email programs). This will automatically set up the email for Outlook or Outlook Express.
If this doesn't work, you will need to use the following settings.

POP3 server = your-main-domain.com (replace with your domain)
SMTP server = your-main-domain.com (replace with your domain)

You may need to authenticate your username and password in order to send mail through our SMTP server. There is usually an option for this in the email client. You will then need to enter your username and password again.

The username has two possibilities. If you are using the default account with the username that you signed up with, you can just enter your username. If you set up an extra email account, you will need to use user@your-main-domain.com as the username. This prevents confusion if multiple people try using the same user name.
Connecting to email accounts using Netscape mail
There is an issue with Netscape regarding the use of the "@" symbol in the username. In order to log into your email account with a username with an embedded "@" using Netscape, you have to go into the user's profile directory for Netscape and edit the "prefs.js" file. Add the following line:

user_pref("mail.allow_at_sign_in_user_name",true);

That should fix the issue.
