Mail to your hosted domain should be delivered to your default mailbox (domain.plus.net)

Any email client can be set up to retrieve email from a number of domains, wherever they are hosted. If email to your domain is not directed to your default mailbox you just need to set up a new account and enter the login details. There is a guide here for Outlook.
Once you have set up a second account it will be visible as a separate set of folders in the left hand pane.

Re: setting up .co.uk e-mail outlook 2007

I have three domain names, user.free-online.co.uk,  user.idps.co.uk  and user.me.uk  all supplied by PN,  they are all delivered to my free-online address by default, no need for an entry in OE.  But you can sort and reject on the full name if you want.  But if you want to send by a particular extension, you have to set up a mailbox

Re:setting up .co.uk e-mail outlook 2007

Any emails sent to your @domainname.co.uk address will be received by the same @username.plus.com mailbox.
You don't need a specific password for your domain, you collect mail in the same way as you do for your @username.plus.com addresses.
Example:
I have a username of chris and a domain name of parr.co.uk
Any email sent to mail@chris.plus.com will also be received to mail@parr.co.uk
All you need to do in your mail client is set up the 'from' address to show as your domain email address.

Re: setting up .co.uk e-mail outlook 2007

as far as sending is concerned, for the post box that you have forgotten your pass word, copy all the received mail to another box, then go into manage mail, delete that box and set up another one with the same name and a new pass word, think that should  work, you can then copy the moved mail back
