e-mail setup

Evening all, my kids are now of an age where I think I can let them have their own e-mail accounts, after setting them up on the individual accounts, I find all e-mails coming into my account and none going into theirs, any one help me on this one please?
Cheers
Alan

Re: e-mail setup

You need to set up each account separately in your email client
Each email address will be in the form
child1@username.plus.com
child2@username.plus.com
you@username.plus.com
with each account set up as follows in Outlook Express or whichever client you use
username+child1
username+child2
username+you
These are the basic help pages

In the last one the bit which is missing is that the where it says that the Account Name is username this isn't correct.
It should be username+mailbox name where you have multiple mailboxes
This is covered in Section 5 here http://www.plus.net/support/email/common_questions.shtml#loginDetails
