New helpful email video tutorials on how to create email accounts and how to check your SMTP server

Checking our email with a cup of morning coffee in hand is what marks the real start of the day for almost all of us. With email communication in action our daily routine has become much quicker, dynamic and information-intensive than just a few years ago when we had to wait days for the post guy to deliver a much awaited notice at our doorstep. Luckily, now we have lightning fast email services at our disposal, ensuring almost real-time information transfer to the opposite part of the world.

Jumping into e-communication is made easy by today’s ever-improving email services and applications. The widely popular free email services are gradually replaced by email hosting solutions, offering greater flexibility and prestige online. All that variety of email options available on the Internet may look confusing to beginners who are yet to get into the basics of email setup and management. If you are one of those users, needing some simple step-by-step guidance on how to start emailing as quickly as possible – then you may find our new short email video tutorials pretty useful.

How To Create Email Accounts – Video

The first most important email action is creating your own unique email addresses, also known as POP3/IMAP email accounts (e.g. kelly@my-best-domain.com) Once you have your new mailbox ready you will have the option to choose how to access it – via an email client installed on your PC (such as Outlook, Thunderbird, Eudora, etc.) or by webmail, i.e. using your browser. The create-email-accounts video will walk you through the basic steps of setting up your own email addresses through the Email Manager tool offered by your hosting provider.

How To Check Your SMTP Server – Video

If you choose to access your new POP3/IMAP account with an email client on your computer, you will need to be familiar with its mail server settings – POP3/IMAP server (responsible for incoming email) and SMTP server (handling outgoing email). Those settings are required by each email client to put a newly created email account into action. While the POP3/IMAP server remains unchanged for the time you stay with your current email hosting provider, the default SMTP server can be changed if necessary at any time (for instance, if you choose to use the SMTP of your ISP). This SMTP video tutorial will illustrate how to check your outgoing server with your hosting provider at any time.
