Setting up your email on a Net Impact Website
(This applies if your site
is hosted through us on Glastonbury Online servers. If you

These instructions assume
you are using Outlook Express version 5. If you have a different
version, your screen may look slightly different.
Click on Tools
in the Menu, then Accounts.
You may already
have some accounts set up. Either way, click the Add button,
then Mail, then type the name you want to appear in the Display
Name box. It may appear if you have existing accounts.
Ensure the "I already have an email address ..." button
is selected. If an existing email address appears, highlight
it with your mouse and press the delete key.
Now type into
the same space the email address we have already given you.
In the next screen ensure that the incoming mail server is set
to POP3 (select from the drop-down list if necessary. Next, type
into both incoming mail and outgoing mail server boxes your domain
name, without any http or www prefixes. So if it is fredbloggs.com
that is exactly what you type. Click next again.
In the account
name box, type the account name we have given you (which may
not be the same as the name in your email address). Type in the
password we gave you into the next box and ensure you don't tick
the Secure Password Authentication box.
then Finish. Close the box.
Now when you
click the New Mail button you should be able to select the email
address you're sending from, if you have more than one account.
(Click the down arrow at the end of the send box)
Now when you
click the send/receive button, both accounts should send and
receive mail normally.
of the way email usually works from a website, you may often
need to click send/receive more than once to send. This is because
(probably to avoid people sending lots of spam from other people's
addresses) you have to receive before you can send.
