Hi Lingwilly,

Making email part of SynthaSite is definitely on the roadmap, but it is not scheduled yet. But as a user you have a strong vote in how we make our plans - thank you for asking and if others have the same request please respond and let us know.

We are very interested to know what kind of email service you are after - would you just want a single account with a web interface, or are your needs for something more than that?

Hi Kershnee,

By Web-interface you mean like we can access the e-mail online? If you are i don't think it's that necessary. If you could make it that we just enter the PO3P and STMP in our default e-mail like Windows Mail or Mac Mail (w/e it's called i forgot) That's all we wud need. I'm just speaking on my behalf if others don't want it i guess we could use the web-interface.

Hi all
If you have control over your domain dns setting then you follow this link to live.com http://domains.live.com (you may have to cut and paste into your address bar) you can set up an email account to match your domain name. Such as domain name www.Jim.com then your email then can be Jim@Jim.com

you can also have up to 500 email accounts there also ALL FREE

To papa. How do you have contol over your domain setting? For the free one in synthasite, can it be used too? I am pretty new to this area, thus i don't really understand all the DNS and stuff.

To Kerhsnee. Ya. Because i have created a web-based business on the internet, like jimmys-place.synthasite.com, i would like to have a portion of that name as my email address. like jimmy@jimmysplace.com.. I understand that certain websites like AOL do allow you to do that, but I am unable to change the DNS configuration. In that sense, do I need to purchase the domain for $14.95 in order to modify the configuration? Oh. and thanks for replying so fast.

I would almost think that Sythasite can set you up with a .com or .net name then they could do that DNS for you. If they can't you might want to check with some other domain registrar.
Before signing up with anyone check to see if the name for your domain is available. If it isn't you can then have some other back up names ready. Also on domain registrar, out side of Sythasite, see if they have a 800 phone number and 24/7 service. One domain register that I have is out of canada and they only work from 8 to 4 or 5. another domain register is out of Austria, have a phone number but rather that chance a big bill so I have to e-mail them. Others that I have are in U.S. and 24/7 service.
If your not really sure of your domain name or dns settings try registering with a place with free domain names. co.cc will supply you with a sub-domain name (they call it free domain name), you get 2 free for life. They look like Jim.co.cc. Once you get the name you can get into the dns setting there and see first hand how they work. co.cc can be rather slow at answering their mail when it all go threw their system. On weekend I THINK they are closed so if you pick out a domain Jim.co.cc name it may not work on your site to Monday. I've waited 48 hours to as little as 10 minutes. Do it during the week if possible.
Pointing your domain site to Synthasite is fairly easy and the pointing your co.cc name for mail to a live site, mx setting go in the same area as the dns settings.
Give co.cc a try and if you really, really mess up you won't be our a penny. If you do get confuse there are a large number of people ready to help.
Good Luck.
