QUICK START INFORMATION

This section will explain how to take full advantage of your new Mail Services Account.

Quick Start Instructions

We recommend a careful review of the Mail Services User Manual, because it will help you to get the most out of your new Mail Services. There are several features that require the more detailed explanations found in this manual.

However, if you wish to get started immediately, you can do the following:

Create the mailboxes.
The Mailbox / Domain Administrator can be found at this location:

http://mail.ablehost.com/domainadmin

Using the username and password provided to you, you can begin adding new mailboxes through the Mailbox / Domain Administrator. (More info.)

Modify Domain Name MX Record.
Ask your ISP or web hosting company to change your domain's MX record to:

mail.ablehost.com

After this has been changed, all email going to your domain name will be routed to the mailboxes you created on our mail server. (More info.)

Configure POP3 Email Software.
Configure your POP3 email software so that it will download your email from our server. Use these settings when configuring popular desktop email clients.

Incoming (POP3) Server: mail.ablehost.com
Outgoing (SMTP) Server: mail.ablehost.com
Username: user@domain.com (user's FULL email address!)

IMPORTANT: Set the option "Outgoing Mail Server Requires Authentication". This is usually presented as a check box in email client configuration and is necessary for your outgoing mail to function. (More info.)

Cleanup.
If you maintained an extra set of mailbox accounts in your email software program during the DNS transition, you can delete them. The reason for this dual account strategy is to make sure that during the 2-3 days that the Internet takes to totally update all of its domain name and email routing information, that you will be able to get your email, regardless of where it is delivered.

For those of you who wish to see more information about our mail server and how easy it is to use, you are welcome to review a copy of our User's Guide (v 2.1). It is in PDF format. If you do not have the free Adobe PDF Reader program, you can download it here.
