Setting up your free email box is simple. Once you have logged in to your WPX Dashboard (1), go to the E-mail Boxes tab (2) on the left;
Then you will see the Add E-Mail Box option;
When you select it, a pop-up menu will appear. Fill in the necessary fields seen below;
In this menu, you need to fill in:
1. The name of the new e-mail address,
2. The real name of the user,
3. Any aliases of the email address. An alias would be an existing or non-existing email address, you can have multiple aliases,
4. Data quota of the email account. You can have unlimited quota or you can limit it.
Important: Storage space taken by your emails must not exceed the total Disk Space of your account. If you set the email quota to 'unlimited', your hosting account will fill up very quickly.
5. Set up any forwarders that you might need. You can select multiple forwarders, as you can with aliases.
6. Fill in an existing e-mail address where the settings and the password will be sent.
Once you're done, click on Submit and check the e-mail inbox where the settings should have just been sent.
