How to set up an email address
Once you've purchased your hosting, one of the first things you might want to do is set up an email address
You can set up 6000 mailboxes if you are on the M package and more if you have L or XL hosting (if you should ever need that many).
Having an email address @ your domain means that you and your colleagues can have a professional email address that matches your branding
You can set up our email to download to your PC / laptop / phone or you can check your email via our webmail system
