Getting Started with the SmarterMail email system

SmarterMail is a feature-rich system and there are many options beyond what is covered in this tutorial. Here we will focus on the basic steps required to set up an email account. Once you are comfortable with the basics, detailed information is available in SmarterMail's help documents. Look for the "Help" link in the upper right corner of any page in SmarterMail.

Once your domain is pointing to our servers you can reach SmarterMail directly at http://mail.[YourHostedDomainName.com], but the first time you log in, you should do so through the Email Management link in Control Panel.

 
NOTE: If your domain is not yet using our nameservers, you can still create email accounts in the Email Management section of the Control Panel. Click the "SmarterMail Management Login as Primary Admin" link and you will be automatically logged in as the Primary Domain Administrator (more information on the Primary Domain Administrator). This will allow you to log in using the email server name and create email accounts prior to updating your name servers. Step-by-step instructions for creating a new email user.
