How to create a POP email account in Direct Admin



How to create a POP email account in Direct Admin

This demo assumes you've already logged in to Direct Admin

Now let's create a new POP email account

Scroll down...

Click the E-Mail Accounts link

There is already a POP email account listed... it is the main POP account that every hosting account comes with (username@domainname.com)

But we're not going to use that account.... we're going to create a new POP email account

Click the Create mail account link here

Here's where you create a new POP email account

Enter the new email address you want to create here

Give the new account a password

Re-enter your password

If you want to put a size (or storage space) limit on this email account, enter it here

When finished, click the Create button

That's it! The new POP email account has been created

Scroll down...

Click here when finished

Details of the new account are listed here. Be sure to pass this information on to whoever will be using this email account, so they can properly setup their email program to access it

Click the Home icon here

This screen shows all the POP email accounts in your hosting account, including the account we just created

From this screen you can create additional POP email accounts, delete existing ones, or change their passwords

This is the end of the tutorial. Don't forget to setup your new POP email account in your favorite email program (i.e. Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, etc.)
