    45 When creating an email address your first task is to fill in the email address by entering the "user" portion (the part that comes before the @ sign) and then choosing from the available list of "domain names" (the part that comes after the @ sign). If you leave the "user" portion blank, then you can create a catchall email address, in other words, any email sent to address that doesn't exist will go to this account. The catchall email address is not recommended, since it will most likely fill out with lots of spam.

    49 You can choose a recipient from the drop down list of existing user accounts. This choice is the most common way to set up an email address. Note - only already created User accounts show up in the drop down menu. To create an email address with this option, you must first create the user account and then create the email address. After you have created the email address, the user can login to their email by going to https://secure.mayfirst.org. They can use the login and password that was created when you setup the user account.

    51 On the other hand, you can also specify an external or internal email address or a list of email addresses and user accounts. For example, if you wanted all email sent to the address jose@yourdomain.org to be forwarded to Jose's Gmail account, you would specify "jose@gmail.com in the recipient field. You can also put a combination of email addresses and user accounts. If the user account jose already exists, you can enter jose,jose@gmail.com,anotherperson@gmail.com in the recipient field.
