We've been hosting clients' web sites and email on our server for the last few years - and one of the most common areas of confusion, questions, and support has been with the configuration and usage of the email system.  Since the email system frequently yields responses such as "I didn't know it could do that," I figured that I would put together this video tutorial that addresses uses, tips for setting up an email client (Outlook), and common issues.

Video Contents:

  • Configuring using Outlook 2007 (or any other Email client such as Outlook Express, Eudora, Thunderbird, etc…)

  • Accessing email via webmail, changing your password, forwarders, and auto-responders
