E-mail is short for electronic mail and is a method of transferring data or information via electronic communication systems through sending and receiving.

Bravenet e-mail services are only available to Pro members or by purchasing Email Hosting. Upgrading your hosting service today!

Through our e-mail services, you can set up any number of e-mail addresses, create a new email forwarder, and e-mail groups. These e-mail addresses can be accessed either through our webmail interface, or through most 3rd party e-mail clients, including Microsoft Outlook.

There's more information at our article about the Bravenet e-mail services.

Creating An E-Mail Account

First, if you are planning on registering a domain, do that first. You will not be able to create e-mail accounts of any type unless you have a domain registered with your account. You can either register a domain or transfer an existing domain to Bravenet or use an external domain (you will need to confirm your nameservers and/or MX records are pointing at us, and Enable Email on the domain though).

  1. Log in to your Bravenet account.
  2. Click the Email Accounts tab to access our e-mail manager.
  3. Click the New e-mail address link to create a new account.
  4. Enter your desired e-mail address and password into the appropriate boxes. Note that your email address should only include letters, numbers, dashes ( - ) and underscores ( _ ). You can have dots ( . ) in your address, as long as they are not the first or the last character, and there's never two or more dots in a row. Your password should be a minimum of four characters long, and should not be the same as your Bravenet account password.
  5. Select the domain you wish to create the account on out of the drop down menu, and click create e-mail address when you are ready to continue.

Once you have created your account, it will typically take 10-15 minutes for it to be fully accessible. You can then use our webmail or a 3rd party e-mail client to send and receive e-mails. If you ever need the details of your e-mail account (the servers, ports, etc.) then take a look at our article on E-Mail server information.
