Configuring your email account is simply a matter
of selecting various items and entering the right values.
This describes who you are seen to be when
others receive email from you. You could claim to be Tony Blair and
have an email address firstname.lastname@example.org, but that wouldn't
be true. That's called forging your email headers. If you do
this, it's probable that people won't be able to reply to any email
your full name and the email address you'd like to receive email at. With Graith Internet,
you can receive emails at any.address@
yourdomain.co.uk so it's your choice
This section tells NN where to collect your email
and where to send it from. You need to enter your website domain name
in your incoming mail server
. I use mail.graith.co.uk wherever it asks for my incoming mail server. If it asks POP3/IMAP, enter POP3. You'll also be asked for your username.
(You should have been informed of your username and password when your service was set up.)
Your outgoing mail server should be the one your
ISP (like Freeserve) gives you, so ask them. It could be smtp.freeserve.net
or maybe smtp.btconnect.com.
Copies and Folders
It's useful to keep a copy of every email you send
as sometimes people reply without including the body of your message
and the context of their message may be unclear. Just select that
you should be BCC'd with a copy of the email. You can then use Message
Filters to put the email in the same folder as others to that customer.
You don't really need to bother filling in any other
sections, but when you get a bit more knowledge you may find other
settings useful to you.
