Hi Gene,

Could you give me more information about what you mean by email feature? Do you want people to be able to email you, or do you want to be able to collect the email addresses of your readers?

Please let me know what you are looking for so that we can help you.

Ruth ,I guess what I meant was I want website viewers to be able to email me @ the domain name address and collecting their address would be automatic, right? Thanks Gene

Hi Gene,

If you have a SynthaSite subdomain (eg yoursitename.synthasite.com) you won't be able to have a related email address (eg you@yoursitename.synthasite.com) - this is not a feature that's available at the moment.

If you have your own domain (eg yoursitename.com), you can set up your email address with the company you bought the domain name from.

The alternative is to add a form to your site using one of the Form Assembly or Wufoo form widgets we have on SynthaSite. That way, visitors to your site can submit their info.

I hope that helps!

Hi Gene

SynthaSite doesn't currently offer email (we're looking into it).

I can highly recommend Google's Email service which is available free for your domain name at ( www.google.com/apps/ ) and you can set it up very easily.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Regards
