Goal:  

   Please click the [ Mark Complete ] button at the bottom of this page when you’ve completed these goals:

  • Access your domain-specific mailbox and send / receive test emails.

 

To test your Email:

1. Access your mailbox in either of these ways:

  • Online via roundcube, or
  • On your computer via Mozilla Thunderbird
    • NOTE: we prefer Thunderbird to Roundcube – it is a good tool that can cope with @yourdomain.com type emails, as well as Gmail accounts – all in one place

2. Send test emails to confirm operation.
