How to add a mailbox and access the web-based email

Whether you decide to use the web-based email or an email client (or both), the first thing you have to do, if you want to have an email with your domain name in it, is to create an email account.

You can do that from the Email section of the Pixie control panel. Inside the Email section click on the button Add Mailbox and in the appropriate fields type the username that you want to use and the password for the email account. For a username you don't have to type the whole email address together with the domain, just the username (the part before @).

After you have typed the necessary information click on Add Mailbox. Once you do it you'll see the email account with several options that you can configure or enable. These include the quota for the mailbox, forwarding, autoresponder, spam filter, and others.

You can access your email through your browser using a webmail client. You can access the webmail either through the link in the Email section of the control panel, or by directly using the URL address. On the webmail login page you have to type the whole email address in the Username field and the password.

Of course, you can also use an email client (e.g. Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird) to access your email account. If you don't know how to set up an email client to use your email account visit the article or tutorial for the particular email client.
