How to create email address in Plesk?

Email address. Type the left part of the email address before the @ sign, and, if you have several domain names on your account, select the domain name under which the email address will be created.

Password. Set the password for accessing the mailbox. If you keep the option “Can be used to log in to Plesk “  selected, the user will use the mailbox password also for logging in to Plesk.
