In this post, we’ll focus on how to set up an e-mail account via Plesk.

1. Login to your Plesk admin panel

2. Click Mail, the second tab on left vertical bar

3. Next, click Create E-mail Address, and set up an e-mail account, contact@example.com

4. If there’s more than one domain, choose from drop-down list

5. Check the “Access to the Customer Panel” box if you want to allow customers to be able to change mailbox settings on Plesk

6. Enter password, confirm it by entering password a second time*
*(Remember to use a complicated password using upper & lower case letters, symbols & numbers by using the generate button below the password box. We recommend that you use a free, open source Password Manager like KeePassX or KeePass).
