  • Under the ‘Storage Space’ section, you can enter a custom disk storage size or select ‘Unlimited’ if you do not want to limit the amount of space for the account. The default is 1024MB.
  • In the Automatically Create Folders for Plus Addressing section, selecting ‘Automatically Create Folders’ means that when you receive an email that uses plus addressing, the system will create a new folder. The server moves a message that uses plus addressing to a designated folder if the folder exists. For example, the system would place a message to in the reuben folder. Selecting ‘Do Not Automatically Create Folders’ means that when you receive an email that uses plus addressing, the system will not create a new folder. Instead, it delivers the message to the inbox folder. The default selection is ‘Automatically Create Folders’ which is okay.
  • Select the ‘Send welcome email with instructions to set up a mail client’ checkbox to send set up instructions to the email address. You can then click ‘Create’
