================================================

In Detail :-

 

 

If you wish to send and receive e-mail on your WebFusion virtual server, you will need to configure your e-mail software to do this. We have used Microsoft Outlook Express for the purposes of this example.

 

When you take out one of our virtual servers you are given at least one POP (Post Office Protocol) account, this is where all e-mail sent to you is located.

 

To set up your pop account you must follow the procedure below

Once you have entered your Full Name and Email address, you will be presented with a screen for setting up Outlook Express with your e-mail server.

 

Make sure your incoming e-mail server is a POP3 server or it will not work correctly.

 

Next you need to tell Outlook Express about the e-mail servers for sending and receiving e-mails. Simply enter in the Incoming e-mail server field the following:

mail.pbsbac.co.uk

 

Now enter your outgoing mail server name (please note there are additional steps required below to make your outgoing mail server work):

mail.pbsbac.co.uk

Now click on Next to take you to the Mail Logon Screen from here you will be asked for your username and password that we supplied to you - ( note username included the "@pbsbac.co.uk" part ). This is to authenticate your identity, so that you can send and receive your e-mails.

 

Make sure you type both your username and password correctly (including the case of the letters) as you will not be able to retrieve your e-mail otherwise. Now click Finish.

Keith / Rob ( and anyone else who wants a PBSBAC e-mail account ).

 

Let me know the account name you would like and ( for club members only ) I will provide you with the username / password. ( provided someone hasnt already asked for the account name ( eg. myboat@pbsbac.co.uk )
