I just signed up here and I have a couple of questions about email:
When I added a new email account is generated a “login” that is a horrible string of random letters and numbers. Am I correct in understanding that this is the user name people will need to enter to access their email? I’m hoping I’m wrong because it seems so ridiculous… How on earth can people be expected to remember that? Every other host I’ve been with has simply used "firstname.lastname@example.org".
Is there some way for users to edit their own email password? I know I can change them from the control panel of course, but I certainly don’t want to give everyone my Web ID and password!
Is there any way to access email on DreamHost’s server before my domain has propagated?
Thanks for your help!
