What is a Mail Account?
A Mail Account, or more commonly known as email account, is a virtual mailbox with which you can send and receive electronic mails (emails) over a computer network like the internet. Aside from sending and receiving emails, you can also store and manage messages in a Mail Account.
If you have a web or email hosting and a registered domain, you can create your own personalised Mail Account. With the regular web hosting and email hosting, you can do this in your cPanel. But, if you have Windows hosting, you can do this in your Plesk panel.

How to create a Mail Account
Before you can create a Mail Account in Plesk, make sure that your registered domain is connected to your Windows hosting.
If your domain and Windows hosting are with Aust Domains, then you are ready to create your personalised Mail Account, since your domain is automatically connected to your hosting.
However, if your domain is registered with another provider, you will need to first connect it with your Windows hosting that is registered with us. To do that, you need to log in to your domain’s management console and update the Name Servers to the following records:
Important Note: After setting the Name Servers, it can take up to 24 hours for the changes or updates to successfully take effect.
If your domain name is registered with us and you would like to know how to connect it to your Windows Hosting that is with another provider, click here.
