Which email "account" should I use or set up?

InMotionFans 4 years ago in Email / Email Client Setup 0
I have a paid-for subscription private email account (2 mailboxes) through my domain registrar (Namecheap.com) that accompanies the domain I purchased through them (e.g. admin@mydomain.com and Dave@mydomain.com). I also just purchased hosting for my website through InMotion. My webiste is currently on my localhost so neither it nor the email addresses are "live." In reviewing the materials for getting started with InMotion, I came across the Email set up in cPanel. My question is, how do I handle this? Do I set up a new email account through cPanel...do I incorporate my existing email addresses from Namecheap...if so, how...what should I do to set up my email accounts? What is the difference between what I set up through InMotion and what is part of the package I purchased through Namecheap? I'm confused.

Thanks for your help,
Dave
Hello Dave, Thank you for contacting us about using your InMotion Hosting services with existing Namecheap products. You have many different options for managing these services, and you can pick whichever works best for you. If I were in your position I would prefer to have all the services in one location. This would mean setting up the email accounts and uploading the website here at InMotion and pointing your domain here. However, if you would like use both services then I recommend our full guide regarding how to use third party email services with your InMotion Hosting account. Best, Christopher M.
