1) Make sure you have a VodaHost web hosting account.

2) Watch the below email tutorials.

http://www.vodahost.com/tut_email.htm (http://www.vodahost.com/vodatalk/../../tut_email.htm)

If you say you have already watched them. Please watch them again!

3) Make sure you have created your email account in your control panel.
This is a very important step that most people forget. Click the below to
learn how to do this..

4) Remember your POP & SMTP setings are always mail.YourDomain.com

5) Your username is always the email address that you created in your control panel.... ie John@smithshoes.com

Lets assume your name is John smith and your domain name is smithshoes.com

For Outlook Express

1. Open up outlook express.
2. Tools > Accounts > Add > Mail.
3. Display Name: John Smith
4. Email Address: John@smithshoes.com
5. My Incoming server is: POP3
6. Incoming mail: mail.smithshoes.com
7. Outgoing mail: mail.smithshoes.com
8. Account Name: John@smithshoes.com
9. Password: The password you made when you created the account in the control panel.
