Setting Up Mozilla 1.7
  1. From the Edit Menu, select Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings...

  2. Click on Outgoing Server on the left side. Fill in the Server Name. This is mail.yourdomain.com where yourdomain.com represents your actual domain name.

  3. Be sure the default Email account is selected and click Next.

  4. Fill in your name and the email address you wish to use. Usually this is something like your_name@yourdomain.com where your_name is the email ID you wish to use, and yourdomain.com represents your actual domain name. Remember your User ID because you will have to fill it in again a bit later.

  5. Be sure the default POP is chosen. Fill in the Incoming Server which is mail.yourdomain.com where yourdomain.com represents your actual domain name. Note that this is also the same as your outgoing server name.

  6. Fill in your Incoming User Name. This is the name you used for your_name in step 4.

  7. Type in a name to remember your account by. This will show up in the left pane in Mozilla to identify this particular email account.

 

How to Receive Email

Click on the Get Msgs icon and select your email account.



How to Send Email

Click on the Compose icon and choose your email account from the from drop down box. Then fill in the To box with the email address you wish to send to. You can send to more than one person by filling in an address in each box. You can also click next to the arrow to the right of the To label and change it to CC (Carbon Copy) or BCC (Blind Carbon Copy - where the recipients won't see who you sent the email to).


NOTES:

Normally it's best to let Mozilla use one STMP server to send all your mail. If you wish to change the server, user ID and password for the SMTP server, go to the Edit Menu and select Properties. Select the Outgoing Server (SMTP) and make your chages there. If you would like to add another outgoing mail server account, click on the Advanced... button to add a new account. When sending email you will have to specify to use the new SMTP server or the default one will be used.

When you first check for new mail on your new account, Mozilla will ask you for your incoming mail server password. Click on the checkbox in the password window to have Mozilla remember your password.

Having Trouble Sending Email?

If you are having troubles sending Email, it may be due to your ISP locking the SMTP port to use only their server. You can try using Active Web Hosting's alternate SMTP port 587. If that doesn't work, you will have to use your ISP's SMTP server and log in with your ISP username and password for SMTP or sending mail only. You will need to contact your ISP for further instructions on setting up your email client to use their SMTP port.

To set up Mozilla to use a different SMTP port for your Active Web Hosting account, follow these steps:

  1. From the Edit Menu, select Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings...

  2. On the left side, click on Outgoing Server (SMTP)

  3. On the right side, type in 587 for the Port setting.

Now you should be able to send your Email via your domain's mail server. If this does not work, contact your ISP to learn how to set your Email client up to send from their SMTP server instead.
