My email stopped working !

 

If you are having trouble receiving your emails, please check the following:

 

1. if you are receiving errors such as bad login, or bad username/password, check your incoming email settings in your email program (there are a number of tutorals covering setup or various email programs, simply search for the one you use). Mailbox passwords can be reset by logging into cpanel and clicking the mail accounts icon.

2. check your site is working normally. If it isn't, follow the suggestions in article Help my site is down.

3. If your site works normally, log into cpanel and check your overall disk space usage, shown in the left hand panel. If your account is over its limit you will need to either remove some unwanted files, or log into your client area at and request an upgrade to a larger account.

4. If overall disk space is normal, click on the email accounts icon and check no mailboxes are over quota. If any are over quota you can adjust the mailboxes to a larger limit.

5. If all disk space shows as normal, check any anti-spam or anti-virus programs. A simple reboot can sometimes help. In some instances it's necessary to disable the spam/virus checking parts of the antivirus program, then check your email program's settings are correct. Once the settings are working you can then re-enable to antispam/antivirus features.
