CONFIGURING YOUR EMAIL|
You will need to ensure that you have requested a pop account i.e. you want an actual separate email address of say email@example.com and this can be picked up from a separate computer. Please refer to our services section for costs. If you have requested email forwarding please ensure that you are already receiving email from your email program, such as outlook, via your current internet service provider and not using web based email ie if you having to go to a web site to pick up mail. Under these circumstances we can still forward mail to your web based account but all your outgoing mail will still have your current email address such as firstname.lastname@example.org. Please find here details of how to configure your microsoft outlook program to use with your new domains.

SEARCH ENGINE SUBMISSION
Submitting your web site to search engines is a very important part of your presence on the internet and there is too much to cover in this support note. However, the best search engines to submit to are the following:
Google, Yahoo, Altavista, MSN, AOL. Also The internet is making more use of the pay for clicks services where you bid for certain key words and the website listings are sold to third parties. Most search engines take these listings from providers such as overture.com, Espotting, Mirago, Looksmart. Electric Names offers consultancy on this. Please call 020 8875 0200 for further information.
