Accessing setup email accounts

Once an email account has been setup on Website Builder there are two ways to begin using it:

  1. Via webmail (e.g. webmail.yourdomain.com)

  2. Via a mail client (e.g. Microsoft Outlook or Mail for Mac)

Webmail is handy as you can login from any browser, anywhere in the world and access your email. However, to get immediate notifications when an email is received nothing beats using a mail client.
