  • Forward Account: Does not save any messages, and forwards any email received to one or more email address. (See Add an Email Forward)

  • New Mailbox: Functions as a normal email account. You will be able to login and check messages for this account. If you do not know which one you need, most likely this is it.

  • Address: What you want to have before [Address]@Domain.com, for example our support team is [hostbaby]@hostbaby.com so we would put hostbaby in for our address.

  • Password: The password you want to use to login to your new email account. This should unique and not be the same as your HostBaby password.

  • Display Name: What nickname do you want to label the account with? Customers will see this to the side of your email, when they enter it into a message. (Example: <test@hostbaby.com>"John Smith", )

When you get everything entered, click the button that says "Create a New Mailbox", as shown below:

When you are done, it will bring you back to the email administration menu, where you can add additional accounts, and show your newly created mail account.

That's it! you created a new email account - Now you can login to check & send mail!

You can access your webmail from, YourDomain.com/webmail2

 

Common Problems:

  • Can't add a new address?

    You will NOT be able to add an email address if you have already set it up as a Alias or Forward. You will need to go to "Manage Email Forwards / Aliases" and delete the address and re-create it as a regular email address.You can add as many email addresses in your account as you like!
