Before you begin

You will need to have your Email Account, Password, Incoming Mail Server and Outgoing Mail Server information. To find this, log into your account via hostControl:
https://secure.hostcontrol.com.au (If you are unsure of your login details, select the 'Forgotten Password' button).

Once in hostControl, browse to the "Email Accounts" section, find the email account you wish to setup and select the 'Connect Info' link to the right. This will show your email's username, password, incoming mail server, outgoing mail server and port number. Keep this information handy and proceed to Step 1.

Next choose your account type. You can select either the "POP" or "IMAP" option.  If you are unsure which to choose, see the following Knowledge Base article link on Should I choose POP3 or IMAP?. If you want to check this email account across multiple devices or computers (such as on your phone, home computer, office etc), then we recommend choosing IMAP.
