Choose Internet E-mail from the E-mail Service type list


Fill in your details in the Internet E-mail Settings dialog

Use the Incoming and Outgoing mail servers specified on the email we sent you when your account was created. For most customers this will be mail1.ace-hosting.com.au.

Your email address is whatever your set up using the Virtualmin control panel (eg neill@ingenious.com.au)

If you only have one email account, or this is the primary email account then your User Name will be your admin username (ie the first part of your domain eg ingenious if your domain is ingenious.com.au).

If this is a secondary email account then your User Name will be the first part of your email address (the part before the @ symbol) and the first part of your domain name (the part before the first dot). For example if your email address is neill@ingenious.com.au then your User Name will be neill.ingenious.

When Outlook collects mail for the first time you will see an Internet Security Warning dialog. This is because the name the mail server announces itself as will ot exactly match the name of your mail server. Because many customers share the same server it is not possible to avoid this. Despite the warning it is safe to use the server.
