The following instructions apply only to our Corporate and Business Class Hosting Plans:
These instructions have been updated in 2008, for our new email systems.
Step 1: In your web browser, go to www.controlpanel.co.nz.
Step 2: Enter your Lounge Network Hosting Control Panel User Name and Password into the appropriate text fields, then click Logon.
Step 3: From the left side of the page, click Email under the Services tab. If Email is not visible, click the Services tab to expand it.
Step 4: Your domains are listed on the right side of the page. From the Show menu you can choose to view All Domains, Hosted Domains or Registry Domains. Registry Domains can be viewed grouped by To Renew, Cancelled, Registrant, Technical Contact or Billing Contact.
From this list, find the domain that you want to add a wildcard email address to, and click its envelope icon.
Step 5: A wildcard email address, is a special type of email alias; click the Add Email Alias... link in the Email Aliases section of the page.
Step 6: In the Add Email Aliases dialog, enter a destination email, but leave the Email prefix blank, this will set up a wildcard address.
Step 7 (optional): Spam settings for the email alias can be set as well, by clicking on the Spam tab. You can either choose to have the email forward use its Domain's spam settings (the default) or define settings for the email alias itself, by unchecking the Use domain spam settings checkbox. The threshold value is the spam score that must be exceeded before the Spam Action is performed; the more likely an email is to be spam, the higher its spam score. Setting the Threshold value higher means less email will be marked as spam.
Any email deemed to be spam, that is going to leave our network, will be deleted.
Step 8: After setting all the email alias options you require, you can add the email alias by clicking the Add button. If you want to continue adding email alias (either wildcard or normal), uncheck the Close dialog box after adding checkbox before clicking Add. You can then repeat steps 6 through 8 to add additional email aliases.
If you decide you do not want to add the email alias, click the Cancel button.
Please be aware that wildcard emails usually cause an increase in spam, because any address at your domain will receive email. It is not recommended that you set one up, instead you should only set up the addresses that you plan to use.
