  2. Click on the Exchange Email tab after selecting subscription from the drop down menu
  3. Click on the Distribution Lists tab

  7. Once the distribution list is created you can add users to the list


NOTE: If you have the mail forwarded and then reply to the e-mail from the forwarded account, it will reflect in the reply to address from the forwarded account.

Setting up your Email Client

You can connect to your myhosting email accounts through the OWA (Outlook Web Access) or by configuring a desktop email program.

OWA (Outlook Web Access)

You can login to your OWA as soon as your account is ready by visiting https://ex.myhosting.com/owa/ in your browser. All you need to do is enter your email address and password to login. If this is your first login you'll need to select your Language and Time Zone.

Customized Outlook Web Access (OWA) Login Page

If you wish to use your own customizable OWA login page at https://ex.your-domain.com, you will need to enable it through your control panel under Hosting > Exchange > Mail & Sync Settings > OWA Customized Login Page.
