About our domain mailbox services
Domain mailboxes can be purchased at time of registration when ordering your domain name. Or, you can purchase domain mailboxes from within the Domain Control Panel under Manage Mailboxes.
The domain mailbox service is for customers who register domain names and require a professional email service but do not require a web hosting service. The mailboxes only work on non-hosted domain names. If you use a UK-Cheapest web hosting account, you should use the mailboxes provided with that account instead.
You get an email address which you can use to send and receive email through our online webmail service. You also get a POP username that can be used with any POP/IMAP supporting application.
The usual way of processing your email is to logon to the online webmail service. From here you can send and receive emails with support for attachments, email forwarding and storage folders.
Each mailbox is a single email address. You can use email forwarding with your parked domain to forward other email addresses to your mailbox.
A mailbox is a location for the server to store incoming emails to your desired email address. You can access your mailbox using the online webmail service or via any other POP/IMAP application.
