Manage your personalized emails
At emyspot we have our own mail service that comes with the subscription to Domain Name Pro. You can create up to 10 email addresses linked to your domain name. For example firstname.lastname@example.org. Access to webmail is included in the Domain Name Pro subscription, but also allows for POP, IMAP and SMTP protocols (so that you can configure your email account manually with another service).
In this tutorial, we will see how to create an account in the manager, and use the webmail to send and receive emails.
In creating a domain name you have the option to create personalized email addresses. You can create up to 10 email accounts to better communicate. For example, to make an email address for visitors to contact you, you could create email@example.com. To do this, you will find all the settings necessary at Settings > Global Settings> Domain Names. Creating a personalized email is a great way to solidify your site's activity and create clear branding.
From here, you will click on add an account and will be guided through the process. If you need more help, we recommend that you read the tutorial : create an email.

- SMTP : is a communication protocol to send messages to a messenger service. To configure the SMTP, you will need to consult your message service and provide the following information, specifically at webmail.ems-app.com, with the port 465 ticking the option "Security SSL/TLS"
- POP and IMAP: these protocols let you receive messages to your message service. You will choose POP or IMAP. IMAP is similar to POP, which will allow you to access the messages on your preferred service or multiple message services. We recommend you choose the option IMAP, in which the server is : webmail.ems-app.com, the port 993 and once again tick the option "Security SSL/TLS"
