Alongside the email service provided with hosting accounts, HostPapa offers two dedicated email services, HostPapa Basic Email and HostPapa Advanced Email. You can check the email services available on your account via the HostPapa Dashboard.
Log in to the dashboard, then select My Services.
You’ll be presented with a list of available services. Use the + (plus) button next to Email to expand the panel.
Use the Details buttons to view settings for each service. If there are no entries in the Email panel, you may still be able to use the email service provided with your HostPapa shared hosting account.
