For the rest of your who are ready to move from your aol or gmail account to a real email that uses your domain, here we go:
Step 1) Login to your cpanel using the following link in your browser: yourdomainhere.com/cpanel
Step 2) You are now in the Cpanel. This is the backend of your website. You have access to everything from files and databases to email. Scroll down and click ‘Email Accounts’.
Step 3) Fill in the name of the Email Account you wish to add (for example: email@example.com). Once you have that filled in choose a secure password and write it down somewhere. If you have the option, choose ‘Unlimited’ for the amount of storage. Then click ‘Create Account’.
Step 4) Congrats. Your email account has been setup. If you wish to just use the email through a browser, then you’re all done. You can access your email online by typing in: yourdomainhere.com/webmail/
If you would like to use your new email in a mail client, like Mac Mail, then we have a few more steps. Click Configure Email Client to continue with the installation process.
Step 5) Click the Application that applies to your setup. I’m using MacOSX Mail.app, so you can see which one I’m selecting. If you’re on Windows, you will probably use Outlook.
If you don’t see you’re mail client as an option, you may have to set it up manually. You’ll notice a few more options below that table that contain the Incoming and Outgoing Server settings. This may look intimidating, but do not be fooled. All you need to do is copy and paste these items into your mail client and you’ll be all set.
Step 6) After the file has downloaded, click the zip to unzip it. Then, click the file to launch the installation process. It will ask you if you want to Quit or Run. You will want to click Run.
Step 7) It will walk to you through a couple popup prompts. You will want to click OK for each.
Step 8) After you click through everything, you’ll need to wait a few minutes. You mail client is now trying to connect to your hosting account, where your email resides. After a bit, there will be one more popup window that asks for your password. This will be the same password that you used to setup the account in Step 3. Enter the password and everything will be connected. All of the email will now come into the mail client where you can read, send and delete messages as you please.
