Add an email address

To add a new email address, perform the following steps:
  1. Enter the email address that you wish to create in the Email text box.
    • If you manage more than one domain, make sure to select the appropriate domain from the menu.
  2. Enter and confirm the new password in the appropriate text boxes.Notes:

    • The system grades the password that you enter on a scale of 100 points. 0 indicates a weak password, while 100 indicates a very secure password.
    • Some web hosts require a minimum password strength. A green password Strength meter indicates that the password is equal to or greater than the required password strength.
    • Click Password Generator to generate a strong password. For more information, read ourPassword Generator documentation.
  3. Enter the quota in the Mailbox Quota text box.
    • The quota defines how much hard drive space the account may use to store email.Important:

      Due to mail server constraints, you cannot assign quotas greater than 2048 MB (2 GB) on 32-bit operating systems and 4096000 MB (4096 GB or 4 TB) on 64-bit operating systems. You must assign the unlimited value for quotas that exceed these amounts.
  4. Click Create Account.
