Before you can configure email software to send and receive emails from our servers, you must

  1. Purchase a cPanel or Cloud hosting subscription service.
  2. Create an email account on our cPanel or Cloud hosting servers.
  3. Ensure you have your incoming, outgoing, username and password details ready to go

Once you have done this, you may configure your email software to connect to the email account you created on our servers.

Note: As a courtesy to our customers, we provide online tutorials on how to configure various email software. Our staff however are not able to provide support on how to use your iPhone or iPad. For further assistance in using Mail on your iPhone or iPad, see Apple's Mail support pages.

    Note:
    You may be given a warning that your device cannot connect via SSL or that it cannot be verified
     
         

    The reason this warning comes up is because your device may be attempting to  connect to our shared mail server via an SSL connection using your domain name rather than the name which the SSL certificate belongs to.

    If this warning comes up, you may simply press continue.

    For more information about this warning, read our SSL certificate on shared email service article.
