What is an email account?

An email account is an account that allows you to send and receive electronic messages.

Each email account has a specific login (e.g. user@yourdomain.com) and password.

Each account also has a quota which limits how much disk space the account can use. Setting a quota is a good idea as all email takes up space and email messages with attachments can take up a lot of space. This space is part of your overall disk space quota.

Note: Be sure to enable SMTP Authentication in your E-mail client or you may not be able to send mail. If your email client has trouble using a @ sign in the login, you can use +, :, or % sign instead.

Email can then be accessed through a desktop mail application (such as Outlook Express or Thunderbird) or through your web browser.
