First, the good news: as we already announced, if you’re a UK2 web hosting customer, you’re now entitled to create up to 5 extra POP3 mailboxes, free of charge. (That’s in addition to the one free POP mailbox available to all UK2 domain customers).
But now, the bad news: as some of you may have noticed, customers on our popular Small web hosting package were not being offered the 5 extra free POP3 mailboxes. This was incorrect, and has now been fixed – now all of our web hosting customers (regardless of which of our web hosting packages you’ve chosen) are entitled to 5 extra POP3 boxes.
To those of you with our Small hosting package who have already tried to create extra mailboxes: our apologies for this mistake.
How do I create mailboxes for my domain?
Just follow these steps:
- Log in to your UK2 account
- Click your domain name
- Click the “E-mail Forwarding and POP Accounts” link
- Click the “Add a POP mailbox…” link, and choose a a username + password
How do I access my new mailboxes?
Your POP email accounts can be accessed via POP3 using your preferred mail client, or using the UK2 webmail interface. You can also use our SMTP servers to send mail, using the same hostname, username and password as your mail account. For brief instructions on configuring your mail client please see Nicola’s announcement post. If you require further help, contact our support team for help.
