Bluehost Webmail Getting Started Guide

Bluehost Webmail

Bluehost webmail allows bloggers and online business owners to use Bluehost to host their email.

With Bluehost webmail, you’ll be able to create and use a professional email address for your business.

What You Will Learn:

In this getting started guide, I’ll show you how to setup Bluehost webmail for your business.

By the end of this guide, you’ll have learned how to configure your Bluehost webmail so you can send and receive emails through Bluehost.

We’ll do this by setting up a new email address (from scratch) that you will be able to use for your business.

I’ll then show you how to use the Bluehost webmail login page, so that you can access your new email address and manage your email whenever you want.

Bluehost Webmail

In order to use Bluehost webmail, you need to have a Bluehost hosting account.

If you don’t already have an account, the blog post below will show you how to get one at a discounted price:

Going forward, we’ll assume you have an account and you’re here to learn how to setup your Bluehost webmail so that you can send and receive email with a business address on your own domain.

Step by Step Guide

What follows below is a step by step guide for getting started with Bluehost Webmail.

You’ll also get plenty of screen shots of each important step along the way.

Let’s get started…

Step 1 – Login to Bluehost and Access Bluehost Email Accounts

To get started you’ll login to Bluehost via their home page.

They change their home page often, but you can always find the login near the top:

Bluehost Homepage

After you click on login, you’ll then reach a screen to enter your login credentials.

Important:  When doing so, be sure “hosting login” is selected and not “webmail login.”  We’ll cover webmail login at the end of this post.

That will take you to your main Bluehost account page.  However, from there you’ll then click on the Advanced tab on the left (see #1 below).

And then you’ll navigate down to the Email section (see #2 below), which puts you here:

Bluehost Webmail Advanced Tab

You’ll then click on Email Accounts, which takes us to the next step…

Step 2 – Create Your New Email Address

The first thing you’ll do is click on the Create button.

Bluehost Webmail Create Email Address

That will take you to the screen where you will Create an Email Account.

There, you’ll create your new email address’s Username and a Password to go with it (see below).

Once you’ve done that, click on the Create button (see above) to go to the next screen.

No need to change any of the other options on the above screen.

After clicking on Create, you’ll see your new email address listed similarly to mine in the screen below.

I’ve redacted my Bluehost userid from the image below, but you should see your own as the first item in the list.

You’ll then click on Check Email, which takes us to the next step…

Step 3 – Choose a Webmail App and Use Email

After clicking on Check Email above, you’ll be taken to a screen similar to the one below.

Here you’ll have three different choices of Webmail Applications you can use to manage your email (see below).

Bluehost Webmail Choose Email App

I find horde simple to use, so let’s choose that one.  All you have to do is click on it.

If you want to set horde to your default, you can do that too.  But, I’d suggest trying all three to see which one you like best.  You can always change to a different one later.

OK, we’re just about done!

After clicking on horde, you’ll be taken to your webmail application to manage your email (see below).

Inside Horde Webmail

From here you can read new email, compose emails, send and receive, organize your email into folders and much more.

While a little bit clunky, this email interface should be similar to others you’ve used and I’m sure you can take it from here!

Bluehost Webmail Login

As promised, I also want to show you how to use the Bluehost webmail login page, so that you can access your new email address whenever you want.

The quickest way to get there is to go here:  Bluehost Webmail Login

That will take you to a similar Bluehost webmail login screen as shown below, where you can enter in your new email address and password.

Bluehost Webmail Login Page

After you do that and click on the login button, you’ll be taken to your webmail application as is explained in the steps above.

That’s it…  Pretty simple really.

Bluehost Webmail Customer Service

If you get stuck, you can contact Bluehost Customer Service via Chat Support from their home page. Or you can call them at 888-401-4678 for phone support.
