Creating an email address¶
Before proceeding, please assure that your domain name is using Gandi’s MX records:
@ 10800 IN MX 10 spool.mail.gandi.net. @ 10800 IN MX 50 fb.mail.gandi.net. @ 10800 IN TXT "v=spf1 include:_mailcust.gandi.net ?all"
If this is not the case, your GandiMail addresses will not work.
1. Choose the domain¶
You need to choose the domain that will be the basis of the email address. It is the part that will come after the @ sign in the address.
Once you are in the domain’s administration area, click “Email” in the navigation menu and “Create” if it is your first email address for the domain.
2. Create the address¶
On the email mailbox creation form, you need to start by choosing if it will be a Standard (3GB) or a Premium (50GB) mailbox.
Then, provide your:
- email address: specify the first part of the address, meaning, what you want to come before the @
- password: choose a complex password for your email address.
- Alias: this is an optional field for use in creating aliases
Finally, once you accept the contract and validate, your mailbox will be created.
You can then access your emails via webmail or by your email application.
