How to configure an email account in FoxMail

This tutorial assumes you've already created your new email account in your web hosting account..... typically through your hosting control panel

Now let's learn how to setup that new email account in FoxMail, so you'll be able to send/receive emails to/from that new email account from here

1) Start by clicking the Account link here

2) Then click New...

The FoxMail Account Wizard opens

3) Click Next

4) Enter a User Name here; this can be anything you want, as it merely identifies this as a new account in FoxMail..... it is not the username required to login to email

5) Then click Next

6) Enter the Sender's Name as you would like it to appear in the From field of outgoing emails here

7) Then enter your new email address here

8) Click Next

Now you have to enter your Incoming (POP3) and Outgoing (SMTP) server names

These server names will have been provided to you in your welcome email, and often times are simply mail.yourdomain.com

9) Enter your Incoming POP3 Server setting here

10) Now enter the Account Username as provided to you by your hosting provider..... this may be the entire email address (john@demo1234.com), or just the username prefix (john)..... you should check with your provider to be sure

11) Then enter your Password here

12) Enter your Outgoing SMTP Server setting here

Depending on your ISP (Internet Service Provider), you may not be able to use the SMTP server setting provided by your hosting provider; you may have to use the SMTP server setting supplied by your ISP

If you are unable to send emails from your new account after it's setup, try changing this SMTP setting to that provided by your ISP, and try again

13) Click Next

14) Click Finish

That's it! We've successfully setup an email account, and can now start sending and receiving emails to and from that account, from FoxMail
