How do I set up my email on Outlook 2010?

 

Before you can configure email software to send and receive emails from our servers, you must:
  1. Purchase a cPanel or Cloud hosting subscription service
  2. Create an email account on our cPanel or Cloud hosting servers
  3. Ensure you have your incoming, outgoing, username and password details ready to go
Once you have done this, you may configure your email software to connect to the email account you created on our servers.
