    Default Where do emails end up?

    I know, I'm sorry, this is a really basic question. If it's been covered elsewhere, forgive me, I did try to search.

    Ok, I have a domain with Xara and am currently going through tutorials as it's about time I did something with it. With my old one (Serif) if someone emailed, say, admin@numpty .net, I would pick up those emails from the Serif secure site. Where would I find the equivalent with Xara? I have looked, obviously, in the Control Center, but that's really just the basics about the domain and space usage.
    What am I missing (apart from commonsense)? Where have all the emails gone? (cue music ...)

    Many thanks.

    Long time asking. (You should be ashamed of yourself)

    I am not sure if there is an email server with a Xara domain name account. Does anybody know?

    You're not wrong. I can't believe I've had my 'new' Xara web design software for [whispers] the best part of three years and done nowt with it yet. Lucky I pay for the annual upgrades.
    If it's not possible, obviously, knowing how others get around it would help.

    You can link to a gmail account for email.

    gmail sends me quite doolally tbh. If no-one really knows, I'll email Xara direct and see what's what. It's quite a basic thing to be able to easily send and receive emails using your domain name. For the organisation I want to set up it's actually more important than the website. If I need to consider a different hosting service then that's what I'll have to do.

    Domains provided by Xara do not come with an email account. Log into your Xara online account. You have the M-Hosting package which comes with the purchase of Xara (or an upgrade or a 1 year renewal). There is no webmail account.

    I also have a Magix Online package which does have a webmail account associated with my domain name. This is a legacy thing, only with Magix online, not with Xara online.

    Thanks for that John.

    Personally, I would go with a full service web host. An account is not that expensive and should come with a lot more features, including email support.

    Hi Gary,

    I agree, a full service web host is definitely better and usually comes with email support and database capabilities.

    Since a domain name comes "free" with Xara DPX and we get a coupon that can be used for the renewal each year, I am using the one provided by Xara. It's for my wife and she doesn't need or want email support.

    I also use the one provided by Magix for my web site as it serves my purpose and it comes with the Magix on-line album.

    Thank you all for taking the time to respond, it's appreciated. Because I'd already had email service included when I was with Serif, I hadn't appreciated this wasn't standard. I'll have a look into 'a full service web host'.
