Setting up Email account
Has anyone else had any problems setting up their email account?
I have a domain name which is attached to gmail. (does this make sense)
Anyway, going through the steps of the incoming and outgoing servers, I am unsure of the server name and port numbers etc.
Is anyone able to shed some light on this for me?
