Frequently asked questions

What can I do with email from 123-reg?

Once you've set up your personal or business email address, you'll be able to send and receive messages anywhere with an internet connection. There's plenty of room to store messages, and you can also attach and send files to whoever you choose. Staying organised is easy, with folders available for sorting and archiving.

How long will it take to set up?

With no software to download and a super easy set up process, your business will be ready to start using email in a matter of minutes.

Can I contact 123-reg for help?

Absolutely. Helping you bring your business online is exactly what we're here for. For fast, knowledgeable help, log in to live chat and get the answers you need.

Do I need technical knowledge to use email?

Not at all. With a clean, simple layout, 123-mail and Office 365 are a doddle to use. Everything is where you'd expect to find it, with an interface designed to make every task feel familiar and intuitive.

How many email addresses can I have?

There's no limit to the number of addresses and you can host as many as you like. Every new one is sold separately, and you'll get a discount if you buy in bulk.

Do I have to own a domain name to buy an email package?

Yes. One of the best parts of email hosting is having an address that reflects your personality and identity, whether personally or in business.

In order to customise your new email with a unique domain name to the end of the address (the part that comes after the "@" symbol), you need to own that domain.

Don't have a domain? Don't worry. You can buy one at the same time as you get an email package.

Can I check my 123-mail with software like Microsoft Outlook?

Definitely. You can check your email with any software that allows you to connect to an IMAP or POP3 mail server.

Popular compatible email programs include:

  • Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express
  • Microsoft Windows Live Mail
  • Eudora
  • Lotus Notes
  • Apple Mail
  • Mozilla Mail
  • Thunderbird
  • Opera Mail
  • Pegasus Mail

With our Office 365 packages you can also use the EXCHANGE protocol to connect to your email accounts. We recommend using Outlook for Exchange however a number of other mail clients also support this Microsoft based protocol.

When you buy email services from 123-reg, we don't offer support for all these programs, but we'll give you all the settings you need to get started.

Can I check my 123-reg email on my phone or tablet?

Yes! As a total business email solution, it can be checked from any device with an internet connection from anywhere you may be.

Is spam protection included?

You're given spam filtering to keep your inbox from overloading with junk mail. You can even customise your spam settings and level of protection to ensure you're only getting the emails you really want to.

Our spam protection won't just stop pesky junk mail, it will also catch viruses, worms and other malicious online threats before they hit your inbox. That said, even with this extra line of defence, it's still a good idea to use email security software and a little common sense before opening an attachment.

What is POP3?

POP3 stands for Post Office Protocol. It's the name of the method used to download emails from a server to a computer. Sometimes a mailbox is called a 'popbox' - they're essentially the same thing.

While POP3 was the first email protocol and is suitable for single-device use, we highly recommend the more versatile and powerful IMAP for "on the go" access to your emails.

What is IMAP?

IMAP stands for Internet Message Access Protocol and is a more modern alternative to POP3 for accessing your emails.

We recommend the use of IMAP, as it allows multiple email clients (Like Outlook, webmail and those on tablets and mobile devices) to access your inbox at the same time. IMAP also leaves messages directly on the server so your phone, webmail and email clients will always be synced.

What is Exchange?

MS Exchange is a mail protocol created by Microsoft that runs on Windows based servers. It is an alternative to IMAP or POP3 and has many improvements and built in features that make it the first choice for many businesses.

Exchange features components such as OWA, a hugely popular webmail system, and ActiveSync, which keeps all your emails and data synchronised over multiple devices. It also supports push email so you receive alerts as soon as an email is received, not just when your device checks for new messages.
