Managing email addresses

To manage the functions of an email address other than the default:

  1. Click the address you wish to modify

  2. The page that displays states the type of account (POP or IMAP), and gives you several options for configuring the email address.

You may change the password for the email address, by clicking on change password for (the email address). This will open a page allowing you to change the password. Type in the new password, re-enter it, and click on Change. A confirmation page will display.

You may also delete an email address by clicking on delete (the email address). You will be asked to confirm whether you want to delete the address or not. Once you have clicked on Delete, you will receive a confirmation that the email address was deleted.

You may also forward emails to users in your domain automatically by typing their email addresses in the forward emails to box. It is also possible to forward emails to users outside your domain by placing their email address in the appropriate box.

You can set an Autoresponse for the address by selecting the check-box and placing the response in the text-box. This response will be sent out every time an email is received by the address you are modifying.

To manage the default email address:

All mail not forwarded to a specific email account will be delivered to the default account. To manage this address, click on default.

This page will allow you to manage the following settings for your default email setting:

  • Bounce (reject) all emails not addressed to a specific address.

  2. Enter a password.
