How do I set up email address for my site?

Last Updated: Sep 10, 2013 12:45PM CDT

Bombplates leverages 3rd parties to provide email accounts. 

UPDATE: GOOGLE APPS NO LONGER FREE

Unfortunately, Google is no longer offering Google Apps as a free service. As a replacement we have succesfully tested Zoho mail as a nice alternative. 

Here are instructions for setup:

  1. Go to https://www.zoho.com/mail/zohomail-pricing.html
  2. Click "Sign Up" under the plan you want (probably LITE)
  3. Follow their wizards to choose and verify your domain and create your admin account.
  4. At this point, you will be logged into their admin console. Set up other accounts, etc. as needed.
  5. Sign into your DNS registrar.
  6. Create the following two MX records
  • Hostname: @
  • Mailserver: mx.zohomail.com.
  • Type: MX
  • Preference/priority: 10
  • TTL: 60
  • Hostname: @
  • Mailserver: mx2.zohomail.com.
  • Type: MX
  • Preference/priority: 20
  • TTL: 60
You will use the URL mail.zoho.com to access your inbox.
