If we provide you with a hosting account that means that we are also responsible for the email account attached to the hosted domain.
Email can be set up as POP3 mail accounts or as forwarded (or a combination of both!).
A POP3 mail account is where you collect the email from our mail server using your email client programme (Outlook Express, Outlook, etc.).
Forwarding is where email to a particular address is forwarded automatically to another address that you give us.
