Q. How long does it take to get my domain working?

Email Settings:

Email settings for an Email Client (Outlook, Eudora, MAC mail etc.):
Incoming mail server: mail.yourdomain.com
Outgoing mail server: mail.yourdomain.com
Outgoing mail server does require authentication.
Incoming mail port: 110 for POP3, 143 for IMAP
Outgoing mail port: 25 (If 25 does not work, try 26, as some ISP's block port 25)
Username is the same one as you use for webmail (the full email address).
(If entering "username@yourdomainname" does not work, try "username+yourdomainname")
** No SSL boxes should be checked **

Mac Mail Setup

Open up Mail.app and press Command+Comma to invoke the Preferences window.
Switch to the "Accounts" pane and press the + button in the lower-left corner.
Under "Account Information", fill out the following information:
    Account Type: POP or IMAP (we recommend IMAP)
    Email Address: email-name@your-domain-name.com
    Incoming Mail Server: mail.your-domain-name.com
    Username: email-name@your-domain-name.com
    Password: your email password
    Note that POP uses port 110 and IMAP uses port 143
Select "Add Server..." from the Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) pop-up menu. Here are the details for it:
    Outgoing Mail Server: mail.your-domain-name.com
    Server port: 26
    Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL): NO
    Authentication: password
    User Name: email-name@your-domain-name.com
    Password: your email password
    Dismiss the window by pressing "OK."
Back in the "Accounts" pane, switch to the "Advanced" tab and do not check the box marked "Use SSL" towards the bottom.
The rest of the process is short and sweet, and merely involves changing your preferences to enable POP access.
