How to create an email address

This guide will explain how to create an email address for domains hosted on LCN web hosting, WordPress hosting, Email hosting packages or a free mailbox.

If you don’t have a hosting plan in place for your domain – you can create one free IMAP email address limited to 25MB disk space. You can also create up to 10 email forwarders on your domain – but cannot create a forwarder and free mailbox for the same address.

For a guide on adding Email forwarders for domains registered at LCN click here.

If you would like to upgrade your free mailbox to a hosted mailbox we have a guide for this here.

Let’s get started…

  1. Log in to your LCN account.
  2. Click the Email Addresses icon from the My Account page of your account.
  3. Click add an Email Address under the Email Addresses heading.
  4. Enter the first part of the address (before the ‘@’ symbol) into the Email Address field and select the appropriate domain name from the drop-down menu to the right.
  5. Enter a password for the Email address.
  6. Please Note: To make sure your chosen password is secure you will need to make sure that it is at least 10 characters long. The system will also check to make sure the provided password is considered strong enough. Simple passwords such as a name or city will likely be to easy to guess and considered not secure.

  7. Select the Add Email Address button to create your address.
  8. You can now log in to your new Email address via the LCN Webmail system:

Please Note: To login enter the full Email address as the username and enter the password set for the address.

Removing an email address

If you no longer require an email address and wish to remove it you can do this by following these steps:

  1. Log in to your your LCN account.
  2. Click the Email Addresses icon from the My Account page of your account.
  3. Tick the box for the email addresses you wish to remove.
  5. Confirm the deletion by ticking the box for I understand that my emails will be deleted. Then click DELETE EMAIL ADDRESSES.

Please Note: Removing an email address will delete all emails within the mailbox from the server. Make sure you have backed up your emails if you do not wish to lose them before deleting.

That’s it! You’ve now setup your LCN Email address.

Please Note: If you need help setting up your email address on your favourite email application, mobile or tablet device, we’ve got loads of easy-to-follow guides here.
