Setting up Your Workspace Email Using Plesk

You can set up email for a domain name hosted on a server using Plesk.

Configuring your server to use email for a domain name is a two-step process. First, make sure your server isn't configured to use its own email services for your domain name. Second, set the proper MX records for your domain name to use email. For more information, see Checking MX Records in the Workspace Control Center.

To Set up Your Email Using Plesk

  1. Log in to Plesk by entering admin as your user name.
  2. Click Domains.
  3. Locate the domain name, then click Open in Control Panel.
  4. Click Mail, and then click Change Settings.
