The 100 e-mail POP3 accounts included with
your virtual domain services with Techtrade are different from
normal e-mail addresses offered by Hotmail, MailExcite and others
because you can send, receive and manage your e-mail through
external mail programs. Your mail is collected on the Techtrade
server and is being retrieved directly by you. External mail
programs are the best and easiest way to keep track of your e-mail.
You also have the option to retrieve and manage your messages
through your Personal Control Panel.
This web-based solution is useful since you have access to your
account from wherever you are in the world if you have a connection
to the internet.
We recommend Eudora Light 3.06 as the external
program for sending and retrieving your e-mail. Eudora Light is a
freeware program made by Qualcomm Inc. and has many of the same
functions as other mail clients.
You may download Eudora Light from the Techtrade anonymous ftp
server at ftp://techtrade.com or from sites like http://www.download.com.
From any version of Eudora (Light or Pro), select Tools -->
Options, then set your Mail Server to mail.yoursite.com and SMTP
server to smtp.yoursite.com. Enter your email@example.com. Be sure
to use your actual domain name rather than "yoursite.com".
Now simply check your e-mail, you will be prompted for your
password. Some versions of Eudora allow you to save your password
and check your e-mail automatically every so often.
If you are unfamiliar with Eudora you will
be interested in a free tutorial on this program. Download and unzip
the eudora.zip file from the Techtrade
anonymous ftp server at ftp://techtrade.com
to view this e-mail tutorial.
