Be sure to read the email introduction.


Kinds of email Accounts

There are 2 kinds of email addresses:

  • Forwarding -- This is an address where all the mail that arrives is forwarded immediately somewhere else. For example, info@mydomain.com could be forwarded to MaryJones@aol.com.  All processing, spam filtering, etc must be done in the receiving side. Email forwarding has the advantage of being very simple to set up and use. It has the disadvantage in that when you reply the replies are "from" the forwarded address.
  • True Mailbox -- This is an address where the email that arrives is stored on our servers until you read it either by the webmail interface or by an email client such as Thundirbird or Microsoft Outlook.   You have to remember to check for new emails or set your email client to do it for you, Email clients are notoriously hard to configure and many people get confused with them. HotDoodle can offer only minimal help here.   If, for example, Microsoft Outlook is confusing, you would have to get help from Microsoft. 

Initial Setup

First, the site must have a domain.   Only one of the domains may have email. See Managing Domains.

Once you have a domain, there will be a Config Emails link.


Getting to the Config Emails Screen

Site specific instructions for access to the control panel and for email configuration can be found in the config emails screen. 

If you are in the HotDoodle main site:

Go to the "My Stuff" page, find your site and
click Site Options.  

Once in the Site Options screen,
click   Config Emails  

   

If you are within your site:

From the "Administration" tab on the toolbar, chose Configure Site.
  then choose

Once in the Site Options screen,
click   Config Emails  

 


Initial Setup

This will show a questionnaire that you can submit to get your email set up.

Note: after your email is enabled, this screen will provide details on how to access the email.

Once you are informed by HotDoodle that your email accounts are ready, you should proceed with Post Setup.
