Email FAQ

What is the difference between email forwarding and an actual POP3 email account?
Basically, email forwarding just redirects an email written to your domain name (i.e. sales@mycompanyname.com) to a true email box/account (i.e. Johndoe@hotmail.com).
With a POP3 email account, the email sent to your domain name (i.e. sales@mycompanyname.com) will go into your domain name's in-box, allowing you to reply from the same email address.

How much is a POP email account on my domain name?
We sell POP3 email boxes by packages of 10 called Email Paks. Each Email Pak is per year per domain name (that means you get to use the entire Email Pak under one domain name at a time).

All I need is one POP email account, can I buy just one?
If you just need one, buy an Email Pak and use only one mailbox.

Can I split the mailboxes I get with one Email Pak into several for multiple domains?
Ex: 5 mailboxes for example.com and 5 mailboxes for example.net.
No, each Email Pak is purchased and managed from only one domain at a time.
