email access for 'newbies'

I just signed up for Plusnet Connect this morning. I've checked all my Outlook Xp settings and it tells me my connections are ok but I'm not getting any testers back or any email from my contacts. The trouble shooter says if I have a new account I have to wait 24hours before my email kicks in. Is this rightHuh Seems a long time for the server to activate my account

RE: email access for 'newbies'

Good Morning,

Your mailbox is actually there on the server. The delay is in creating "MX" records that tell the worlds email servers where to send email directed to you.

This is an automated system that is updated once per day, early in the morning.

This is why it taes up to 24 hours for your email to start working correctly.

Kind Regards

Duncan
