Creating email ids for your domain

Hi All,

I have recently purchased a domain name and hosted a simple site for one of my friend. She now wants to have an email ID at her domain, like contact@domainname.com.
I have no idea how to do it. If any of you have done this please guide as to how to do it.

P.S : I did not know under which forum would this post be appropriate so posted it here.

Regards,
Naresh

Whether that's possible depends on the kind of plan you purchased from the hosting company. Often those will allow you to set up email addresses for the domain they host for you, but some plans (especially cheap/inexpensive ones) don't.

Let's move this to the "General Computing" forum, since it isn't specific to Java or any particular product.

Okay. I remember the person saying that he would provide me a few email ID's. Do I need to contact him or can i do it myself?

That depends on how the company operates. In all likelihood, you'd set that up yourself. Check the documentation on their web site, or contact "the person", whoever that is.

You could also sign up for Google Apps (Standard Edition is free) that would give you email id with @yourdomain. You could check out google apps at http://www.google.com/a

Its should be easy to set it up after reading the help files that they have provided.

The google apps Team edition costs you $50 per e-mail ID and the standard edition I tried does not have the email feature.
Please let me know if I am missing something.

Standard edition definitely has email features (in fact I think it has all the features) - I am using it myself !

Thanks Sam!! It works like a charm
 
I'm thinking about a new battle cry. Maybe "Not in the face! Not in the face!" Any thoughts tiny ad?
