Please note: Before you can configure any mail client to send/receive your email, you must have first actually created an email mailbox in your Daily Control Panel. If you have not done so already, please see the following article Creating Email Boxes


Cannot get your email to work? Don't worry, we are here to help you, follow the steps and you will be up and running in no time!

The first thing you will need to do, is to actually add an email account on your Web-Mania Account. You can do this, by login into the control panel on the left side of this page. Once you're logged in, go to: 
  Manage Hosting > Manage Email > POP3 Accounts > Add New POP Account

1. To begin with, you need to have an email client such as Microsoft Outlook Express installed on your PC - This comes free with any Windows platform, or you can download it from Microsoft.com. Once you have the program installed, run it and follow to next step.

2. Once you opened Outlook Express, you should see a screen like this one:

A) This box represents your email folders, you can go into inbox, to read messages, or check the sent messages on "Sent Items".

B) This section represents all of the emails, so on Inbox, it should display all the emails you received, and on "Sent Items" it should display all emails sent.

C) This shows a preview of the email before you open it, incase its something you dont want to read, you can just preview it, and then delete it.

3. Now since you got the feel of the program, lets go and create a new email account. Click on top tab: Tools ยป Accounts You should be prompted with a new window, like this one:
