If you have ordered this upgrade, there's nothing more you need to do - this will have been set up for you automatically and all email to your domain will be forwarded to the Destination Email Address you have chosen.

Unfortunately many ISP's don't allow their customers to send through outside mailservers such as ours. In this case, you should send through their SMTP (sending) Mailserver. Your ISP will be able to confirm the correct information for this setting. Emails will be received through our POP (receiving) Mailserver.
Yes. Our standard service gives you a "catch all" POP mailbox which delivers all domain emails (email@example.com) to your POP mailbox.
However you can also order any number of POP mailboxes you choose. We can provide an unlimited number of email addresses for each Mailbox and can stream multiple email addresses to 1 Mailbox. In other words, you can have 2 or more Mailboxes, each with 1, 5, 10 or more addresses being delivered to it, as you choose. You can add more email addresses to each Mailbox at any time, free of charge. Please contact us if you would like us to tailor a solution to meet your individual needs.
Our Automatic Renewal Service automatically renews your DomainsWeb account (including any upgrades) and charges the credit card on file for one additional year of service from the current expiry date. Auto-Renewal ensures that your email service enjoys continued uninterrupted operation without risk of cancellation. We will continue to bill your account on a yearly basis unless you cancel it beforehand.
One month prior to the Account Expiry Date, DomainsWeb will charge the credit card we hold on file for your account. If the credit card is charged successfully, you will receive an email Invoice confirming payment. If the credit card is declined, you will receive an email Renewal Notice requesting payment. We will try to process your card 3 times before your account is cancelled. If your account expires and payment is not received during our "grace" period, it will be deleted. You should click here if you need to update the card held on file for your account.
Please note that we can't renew your domain name. You will need to contact your Domain Registrar to renew your domain.
If your account is nearing its renewal date and you want our Automatic Renewal System to use a different credit card, you can click here to update the card we hold on file for your account.

account you should cancel it immediately. You can cancel your

Cancellation of Service requires 1 month prior written notice under the terms of our Service Agreement. Email and Upgrade Fees are non-refundable.
Please note we are unable to cancel Paypal Subscriptions so customers who have paid by this method will also need to cancel at Paypal.
Please note that your cancellation request must be received at least 1 month prior to your Account Expiry Date if you don't want to renew your account for another year. Once our Automatic Renewal Service renews your account, renewal fees are NOT REFUNDABLE because we will have already paid our upstream provider for your next year's service.
