When you build a site with HDM, you get access to one of the most sophisticated content management systems currently available. Getting an ideal email arrangement couldn't be easier, as we're about to show you.

First, simply log in to the backend of your website by going to www.yourdomain.com/admin, and entering your log in information.

Once inside, refer to the menu on the left of the screen. Click Site Settings > E-Mail Accounts.

From here, you'll see an overview of the current email arrangement associated with your website. To create a new email user, click

New Email Account.

On this screen, enter the new email address exactly how you want it, followed by the first and last name associated with it, as well as your default email. Once you click 'Save,' you'll get an activation email sent to your default address that will allow you to finish the process, and create a password for your new address.

If your current inbox is set up for you@yourdomain.com, it's possible for you to simultaneously view emails coming in for info@yourdomain.com, sales@yourdomain.com, contact@yourdomain.com, etc.

Simply click Add Email Alias, and enter the address(es) you would like to receive emails for.
