Setting Up Your E-mail Application

Email Setup

When you have web hosting packages, you will receive a certain number of e-mail accounts or boxes. Even if you do not have a site of your own, you can still secure a domain name and use that name for your e-mail by having an e-mail account only with the host company.

Domain name-based e-mail addresses for your company and its employees provide a level of professionalism and marketing that is not found when using free e-mail accounts such as Yahoo or Gmail.

Once you have chosen your e-mail addresses and set them up with your domain’s hosting company, you will need to add them to an e-mail program such as Microsoft Outlook in order to check and organize your e-mail.

In short, after purchasing your hosting subscription service, you can immediately set up your company’s professional e-mail account.

There are many e-mail software setup tutorials on the Internet. Normally, the settings used to connect e-mail software to the servers are virtually the same. Should you have trouble with setting up your e-mail application, it is recommended that you seek help from a tech support company to help you to set up your e-mail applications or to accompany you through a given process.

The following are common e-mail applications that can be used without the need of having your own website:

  • Microsoft Outlook (2000, 2003, 2007, 2010, and 2013)
  • Microsoft Outlook Express 6
  • Apple Mail
  • iPhone and iPad
  • Microsoft Surface
  • Outlook 2011 for Mac
  • Blackberry
  • Thunderbird
  • Windows Live Mail
  • Entourage 2008

For starters, since the settings are almost the same for all e-mail applications, all you need to do is to launch the application, select “Tools” from the menu bar, then select “E-mail accounts” from the Tools menu, and an E-mail Accounts wizard or something similar will appear. Click “Add a new e-mail account” and then click “Next” to proceed with the setup.

Just follow all the instructions and you will be able to set up you e-mail application in no time.
