About the Internode Mailbox Manager
Mailbox Manager allows you to create or remove extra email addresses (mailboxes) for family or staff members. Each Extra Mailbox has a unique username and password, and stores email separately from other accounts.
Your Internode account entitles you to 5 free Mailboxes in total: 1 Primary Mailbox and 4 Extra Mailboxes. Additional mailboxes beyond this limit cannot be created through Mailbox Manager, and incur a charge - see our Email Product Features for full details.
You will be asked to choose a username and password when you create an Extra Mailbox. The username is used to create your email address, in the form firstname.lastname@example.org
You may change a mailbox password at any time, but the username (and derived email address) is fixed. If you need to change an email address you must create a new Extra Mailbox, then remove the unwanted original.
- Your Primary Mailbox is used for Internet access and cannot be altered using Mailbox Manager. If you need to change your Primary Mailbox, please contact our Support Team.
- If you own a personal domain and would like to configure domain aliases, or if you have a Biz Bundle service, please lodge a Support Request.

Configuring your Mail Client for your Extra Mailboxes
Once you have changed your mailboxes using Mailbox Manager, we recommend you adjust your mail client's settings to send and receive email from each of your Extra Mailboxes.
You will find detailed instructions for configuring a range of popular mail clients on the Internode Email Configuration Page.
