Emails on multiple domains

Hi,

We have several domains hosted with plusnet, and I need to set up the email for each domain individually.

Example.
Domain names jon.com fred.com george.com

What I require is 3 mailboxes on jon.com
mail redirects on fred.com
and 2 mailboxes on george.com and 1 redirect.

Resulting in the following.

a@jon.com
b@jon.com
c@jon.com

d@fred.com -> d@yahoo.com
e@fred.com -> e@yahoo.com
f@fred.com -> f@yahoo.com

g@george.com
h@george.com
i@george.com -> i@george.com

How do I set this up please?

Emails on multiple domains

Do any of the domains have conflicting bits before the @ for instance do you have d@jon.com going to a mailbox and d@fred.com going to a yahoo account?

Yes, there will be some, and they will need to be directed to different places

In which case, what you are after is not possible by default.

Any domains associated with your account, will be delivered to the equiviland mailbox, redirect or mailing list associated with your @username.plus.com address.

Thus

a@john.com
a@fred.com
a@george.com

Will all do the same as what you set a@username.plus.com to do.

However, there is the option to turn on SMTP for the domain, and maintain your own server with corresponding customised rules.

So what you are saying is that Plusnet do not allow you to manage email on a per domain basis. I.e. to get my options to work, I would need to set up seperate usernames (multiple plusnet accounts) per domain and pay for each one individually?

If I can find a way of avoiding duplicate names, then how would it be setup.

E.g.

a@jon.com

b@fred.com (redirected to) jon@yahoo.com

c@george.com

Yes if there is no duplicates it will work fine as default, any domains hosted on the account will all work the same in terms of email addresses, simply goto the email settings area on the portal and assign mailboxes / redirects as required.

As per Chris's reply, it will work provided there are no duplicates.

So if you have

a@fred.com redirected to a@yahoo.com
and
b@john.com collected by POP3

Then simply have to put up with the fact that a@fred.com & a@joh,com will be redirected to a@yahoo.com, and that b@john.com & b@fred.com are both collected from one POP3 account.
