    Are you trying to set up web based e-mail for visitors, or mailbox services for yourself/friends/family?

    If it's web-based e-mail, you'll need to ask your web provider if it does not violate your terms of service with them.

    It it's mailbox services, the web provider should allocate a number of mailboxes and virtual (redirecting) mail services. Without knowing who you're going through, those numbers vary all over the scale.

    Good Luck!

    Thanks for the reply
    I have designed a site for mrkhealthcare.com
    I want to get web addresses like
    sales@mrkhealthcare.com
    xyz@mrkhealthcare.com

    I think this is called mailbox

    I am not thinking for a web based email for visitors

    The mailbox i want to impliment is for the company employees

    Thanks

    who ever is your IHP (intern hosting provider), the person where you have your site at, should give you e-mail capability in the form of POP e-mail boxes.

    Check with them first..

    Also, there are two types of mailboxes you can set up for the employees. Your web host may restrict how many boxes you have available, so this is important.

    Real mailboxes (xyz@domain.com, mail server is mail.domain.com for SMTP and POP3) - For these there are usually a limited number, and you have to set up the mail client to look to a different server.

    Virtual mailboxes (xyz@domain.com forwards to your normal e-mail) - Some servers restrict the number of accounts you can have. The big difference is on the client side. With a virtual e-mail you set up everything to look at your usual e-mail address.

    As jonese said, check with your provider. They have final say as to what you can and cannot do. For setting up the actual accounts, most providers have a site control panel that will have e-mail setups for it.

    No scripting required!
