Setting up you at yourdomain.com

You can now use you@yourdomain.com email. Here’s how to set that up.

Depending on your email program, these instructions will vary, but here’s the general gist of it:

1.) In your email program (e.g. Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, etc.), find where you add a new email account. In Outlook, it’s Tools –> Email Accounts.

2.) Add a new email account. If given the option, this will be a “POP” or “POP3″ account.

3.) Fill in your name, email address (you@yourdomain.com). Here’s the rest of the info you’ll need in various fields:

Incoming/POP server: mail.yourdomain.com
Outgoing/SMTP server: mail.yourdomain.com [However, this depends on your ISP. E.g. for Earthlink, it’s something like smtp.earthlink.net. Check with your ISP or check the other email address you probably use, e.g. you@earthlink.net. Also, some ISPs (SBC for example) require authentication.]
Account/user name: you@yourdomain.com
Password: [whatever that is]

4.) If there’s a “Test Settings” button, give it a try. If not, you’re probably done. Try “Send and Receive” from your email program and see if it works.

5.) If it doesn’t work, make sure: you’re online, your info is all spelled correctly, your pop/smtp server info is correct.

6.) If you’re going to be using you@yourdomain.com as your main email address, there’s usually a spot to make it the “default” address. This means that a new email you send would then go out using you@yourdomain.com instead of your old you@earthlink.net. Depending on how old your email program is, you can use both email addresses (or more) in your email program.

That’s about it.
