We do not have our own e-mail server, there is a simple reason that e-mail for domains in Yandex provides all you need for free. Using this service you get:
- Addresses type firstname.lastname@example.org
- Required quantity of mailboxes (by default 1000)
- Convenient interface to control e-mail accounts (mailbox blocking for fired employees and giving mailboxes to new ones, passwords change and etc.)
- The facility to install the logo of your organization on Mail web-interface.
- Unlimited capacity of mailboxes
- Secure defense system from spam ad viruses
- Access to the mail through web-interface (from any computer) and mail programs POP3/IMAP
- Access to your mail from mobile phones
- Calendar for working day administration, meeting timetable and business list management
- Convenient instruments to work with letters in web-interface (browsing of “office” documents, downloading of all files in one archive, filters and marks for convention correspondence sorting and etc.)
- Various additional facilities (address on default, domain aliases, mailboxes aliases)
As you know, any hosting will not be able to compete with such an impressive list
Then you need to move the MX and TXT records to the DNS settings so that all other mail servers know exactly how you are receiving the mail.
Now you can create new e-mail for your domain. Go to https://connect.yandex.ru/portal/admin/ and click "Add"
Then you have to login and accept terms:
