So you’ve purchased 123-mail and now you want to set up your first mailbox.
Well, start by logging into your 123-reg control panel.
Click on ‘Manage email’ in the ‘Email’ section.
Now hover over the ‘Create’ button shown here and then select ‘Mailbox’.
Use the dropdown menu to select the domain name you wish to create the mailbox for.
You can now enter the email prefix you wish to use.
Choose ‘mailbox’ as the type and select the package you have purchased quota for.
Now choose and enter a password for your mailbox, then confirm this by retyping it.
Remember when you are creating your new password to ensure it fits the password criteria.
It must be at least 8 characters long with a combination of upper and lowercase letters, as well as numbers.
It must also include at least one special character.
You can now select to make the mailbox a ‘catch all account’, meaning any emails sent to ‘@yourdomain’ will be sent into that one mailbox.
If you are planning to sync your emails, contacts or calendar to your mobile device, you will need to check the ‘Mobility add-on’.
Once you have finished click on ‘Save & Exit’.
If you need to change your password at any time, have a look at our video on changing your mailbox password.
That’s it, your mailbox is set up.
You can now visit ‘webmail.123-reg.co.uk’ and log in to ‘123-webmail’ with your email address and mailbox password to begin sending and receiving emails from this account.
