Email Account Setup

Introduction

One of the many benefits of owning a domain name and hosting account is that you can create custom, professionally branded email addresses. This article explains the steps to set up an email account on your domain.

Create an Email Account

First, follow the steps below to access your Email Manager:

  1. Log in to your hostmonster account.
  2. Click the Hosting menu at the top of the page.
  3. Click Email in the submenu.

Using the links to the left, you can create and manage your email accounts and other settings, such as email forwarders, autoresponders, spam filters, and more.

Next, follow the steps below to set up a new email account:

  1. The Email Accounts section should already be highlighted, but if it isn’t, click on it now.
  2. Click Create an Email Account.
  3. Enter the new email address prefix (before the @ symbol), and then select the domain you want to use from the drop-down menu. Email addresses can contain periods or dots as well. For example: john.smith@example.com.
  4. Create a password within the guidelines listed on the page, or click Generate Password and our system will generate one for you.
  5. Next, select your preferred default webmail client from the drop-down menu. If you’re not sure which one you want to use, select “I want to choose later.”
  6. Under Mailbox Storage, set the storage limit for this mailbox. If you aren't sure of the user's needs, you may want to select the default limit of 250 MB now and make any necessary adjustments later. Once a user reaches their quota, any incoming mail will bounce back to the sender, so it’s important to set a reasonable limit.
  7. Finally, click Create.

Hooray! You’ve successfully created an email account.

Next, learn how to access your webmail or set up an email client on your computer or mobile device.
