View Full Version : Getting a domain name.

Hello I am currently working on a web site at http://www24.brinkster.com/athlon1400/

I wish to get a pop3 email account that I can access through outlook with my own www.mysite.co.nz.

My question is, Is there a way I can have the address michael@mysite.co.nz for email and check it through outlook and have the url www.mysite.co.nz redirecting to my site at http://www24.brinkster.com/athlon1400/ ?
Thanks!

You can use an url redirection service. There are probably heaps of them out there, one is http://url4life.com for an example. Your email address can be yourname@yoursite.com

Michael, I've emailed a guy I know who should know. I'm sure he does this with his. Hopefully he should post an answer soon.

Talk to the ISP who is hosting your pop account, as they often have different deals for email only etc. As you'd own the domain, they might be willing to bounce everything off to your other site

As others have said, a redirection service will give you what you want. cjb.net will allow up to 100 aliases for your email redirection so everyone in the family can have their own email address, which will all be redirected back to the one account.
