How do I create a mailbox?

To create a mailbox, you first need to log into your 123-reg control panel, then follow the instructions below:


Scroll down the page until you reach the Email section.


Click on the Manage email link.


Click on the Create your email addresses option.


Click on the mail box option.


Enter the email address prefix in the box provided, and then select the domain from the drop down box provided. You can specify the type and package you require the mailbox to be. You will need to enter you password, and you will be shown how secure your password is.

Please note: Passwords must satisfy the following criteria to ensure they are as secure as possible:

  • Mixed case: Use a combination of uppercase and lowercase characters
  • Numbers: Use a mixture of numbers and letters
  • Special characters: Use at least one of the following special characters : "!£$%^&*()-_=+}{#@':;.>,
  • Length: Your password must be at least 8 characters long
  • Unique Characters: Your password must contain at least 4 unique characters


There are then some simple admin settings to configure, and then click either the Save and Exit or the Save and Add Another button.

Your new mailbox will now be created.
