Email Setup

Neto does not manage email on behalf of its clients. Instead clients must utilise a 3rd party email service provider, such as Google Apps.

Why Does Neto Recommend Google Apps For Your Business?

Google Apps offers simple, powerful communication and collaboration tools for any size business – all hosted by Google to streamline setup, minimise maintenance, and reduce IT costs. As with other business email services, your email addresses will be linked to your domain (eg: ryan@mydomain.com) when using Google Apps.

How to Create Your Google Apps Account

To get started, simply go to: https://apps.google.com/

Sign up for the Google Apps service and setup your account. Once you have done so, you will need to verify your domain. To verify ownership of your Google Apps domain, you’ll need to sign in to your domain host, which is most likely the service you used to buy your domain name and add a TXT record.

Using Google Apps for Email

Once you have completed the above steps go to the below link for step by step setup instructions. This link covers everything from email account setup to the migration of data from your old email systems.

Getting Started with Google Apps

Accessing Google Apps Admin

Once you have setup your Google Apps account you will be able to access the admin panel here: http://www.google.com/a/yourdomain.com/

Replace “yourdomain.com” with your actual domain name.

Accessing Your Email via Google

Once you have setup your Google Apps account and created users (email accounts) you will be able to access these mail accounts by going to: http://mail.google.com/a/ yourdomainname.com.au

Replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain name.

Configuring POP and IMAP Access

You can access your email accounts using the Google Apps Web Mail feature or you can access it using any other email management program such as Microsoft Outlook using POP and IMAP.
