Description

Chances are you are going to want to set up some email addresses on your account. Whether you are setting up a POP or Managed Exchanged email, if you haven’t done this before you might not know where to start. There a few steps required to get set up, which I will go through below.

First off, you will need to head over to the Console. After logging into the console you'll be presented with the dashboard. On the left hand side in the navigational pane please select "Mission Control Service Panel"

Next click on the "Log In Now" button which will appear, when prompted for a username and password, please enter the login details displayed on this screen.

Now your into the correct area to manage your Mission Control mailboxes.

Choose the type of mailbox you would like to create using the drop down menu. For the purpose of this example, I will be choosing Managed Exchange 2010 – Basic Access. Click Create Mailbox once you have made your choice.

Complete the necessary details on the following page, as I have below. Ensure you have turned the Mailbox status to ON.

You will also notice some options for Quotas. You can set any value up to the maximum size of the mailbox level for each quota option. You will need to fill the required fields: Full Name, Main Email Address, and Password, as a minimum. Once you are satisfied, click Save.

Please note that changes made may take up to two hours before they take effect.

You will now see the newly created mailbox back on the Edit/Create Mailboxes page. It will show Pending Update for up to two hours while the system finalises the creation of the mailbox. After this time, the mailbox will be fully functional.
