Account: Create a Domain Email Address

Account: Create a Domain Email Address

When choosing to create an email address, you have two options.

  • G Suite
  • Webmail

You can read more about purchasing G Suite here

The following are instructions to create a regular Webmail email address.


Important: Before you can set up any email accounts, you must already have a domain associated with your website account. Domains must be fully registered, pointed, or transferred in order to set up an email with that domain.


    1. Click Email on the left.



    2. If needed, choose which domain you would like to add an email address for:



    3. Click "+ New Mailbox" at the top of the page



    4. This is where you can choose "Standard Email" or "G Suite".
      For a regular Webmail email address, choose "Standard Email", then "Create New Mailbox"


    5. In the Email address field, enter a name for your new email account.

      *Important:
      Just enter a name, don't include the @ sign or anything extra. A lot of people use generic names here like admin, info, or sales, for example.

    6. Create a password and verify password
      Tip: The password you create should follow our password recommendations. Don't make it easy for others to guess your password and access your account. We recommend using a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers, and symbols.

    7. Click Save.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Adding second email help.

I currently have an email account through homestead. I am using the homestead open-Xchange server directly . I hired an employee and want him to have email. I went in and upgraded my account to add one additional email. However, when I try to open the xchange server and go to configuration and try to "add email" I am getting an error message. I'm not sure I'm entering the proper information in the server setting snd outgoing server settings. When I try to just copy the same information that is listed as it pertains to my email I get error message. Can someone please help me set this up? I tried to get help via the chat service but he couldn't help me.

You do not set that up. Follow the instructions at the top of this page to create the new address. It can take a couple of hours to complete set up.

prout8999, email addresses are not included in the basic package. They are $1/month each. If you would like 1 or more added, please let me know.

jbmcdermith6597, The starter package does not include email service. Email addresses can be added for $1/month each. I can add however many you need for you, or you can do so from the Add on services on the left. Click on customize my website, then Add extras at the top.

Hello,
I want to cancel my current email address because of the number of spam and junk emails I receive - somehow this email address has been compromised.  Then I want to add back on my one email for $1/month with a different address.  Please advise how to do this.

You can go to manage my email account on the email tab in your account and delete the existing one and then create the new one.

It doesn't appear that you have changed the nameservers to ours. You will need to do this in your domain hosting account. Remove the existing ones and add
ns1.mdnsservice.com
ns2.mdnsservice.com
ns3.mdnsservice.com

Once that propagates, you should be able to create the email

You will need to add email to your package to have this option. Click Account > Account Summary > Get More Addons > Hmail Boxes.
