To set up an e-mail account for ANY domain follow these steps:

1) Log into your CPanel
2) Click on the mail icon
3) The first option is List/Add/Remove POP Email Accounts, select this option
4) At the bottom of this is ADD ACCOUNT, click here
5) this will bring you to a screen that askes for an e-mail name with a drop down list ie (somename@any_domain_you_chose.com)
6) select the domain you want the e-mail assoicated with
7) select a password for this account (This will be associated only with this account)
8) select the quota or leave at 10 meg default.
9) Click on create

After the e-mail account is created you can repeat steps 3 - 9

After you have all the accounts set up you can check them 1 of 2 ways:

1) Outlook / Outlook Express
a) Open Outlook express
b) Create an account under tool -> Accounts -> new -> Mail
c) Follow wizard
d) when asked for pop and SMTP they are mail.YOURDOMAN.com for both Incoming and Outgoing
*YOURDOMAIN* = whatever the MAIN domain is of the account
e) Username is the SAME as the e-mail address (i.e. name@domain.com) the whole thing not just the name
f) Click finish, if you get an SMTP error try using your ISP's SMTP server name

2) Webmail
a) Using a Web Browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Mozilla, etc) go to www.yourdomain.com/webmail (again the domain is your MAIN account not addon domains)
b) a log-in box will pop up, the username is the e-mail account you want to check with the password for THAT e-mail account
c) Chose 1 of 3 optoins for reading mail, they are all the same mail just a diffrent look and feel

*Note: If you still recieve errors, switch the outgoing SMTP port from 25 to 26.
