Your hosting account with InterXstream entitles you to at least one e-mail account. Your email can be accessed using Outlook Express or any other e-mail client software.This guide contains steps for setting your e-mail account with Outlook Express.The examples in the guide assume the hosting account settings are:Domain name: yourdomain.com

The first step is to select a display name. This name will appear next to your messages when you send them out.

Your hosting account includes at least one, default email address. The logon information for this e-mail account matches your hosting account logon and password. Check your InterXstream welcome message for these if you have forgotten this information:
IF you are setting up e-mail account for your default e-mail address, specify only your hosting account username in the "Account name" field as shown below:
IF, however, you are setting up an account for e-mail accounts other than your default account, you must specify the entire e-mail address for the logon username. This is shown in the following example, which assumes you have set up an email account for "bob" on your domain.
