How to set up a new Mail Account

You can add a POP3 or IMAP email address for collection from the mail server using a program such as Outlook Express, or you can forward email to an existing address, such as a hotmail/gmail address, or the email address provided by your Dial-Up/ADSL provider, using the Mail Forwarding feature. Either way, the first thing you need to do is to add the new address.

Adding the new address to Metawerx Mail

To access the Mail Administration screen, first log in to SiteWinder using the Log In link on the main metawerx website.

Next, select Mail Administration for the domain you want to administer.

4 sections will appear as follows:

  • Mail Addresses
  • Mail Aliases
  • Mailing Lists
  • Mail Blocks

Underneath the Mail Addresses section, select the Add Mail Address button.

The Add Address screen will appear.

Enter the name of the mailbox in the Email Address field (for example: neale). The section will be added automatically.

Enter a password for the mailbox in the Password and Confirm Password fields. The password must be at least 6 characters long.You will need to enter the password twice. The password is only used for collection using POP3, but needs to be entered even if you are planning on using the Mail Forwarding feature.

Enter your Full Name in the Full Name field. This name will appear on the Mail Administration screen. The name will not be visible to anyone else.

If you want the email address to forward email to an external email address, enter the address in the Mail Forwarding field.

Ignore all the other fields, and scroll the page down to find the Proceed button.

Click Proceed. The confirmation screen will now appear.
