From: Telstra Business Provisioning
Subject: Welcome to your new hosting service.:
Your new email and/or website hosting account will be ready to set up in 4 hours time.
Thank you for choosing Telstra Business Broadband to host your online services.
This email contains the information you'll need to set up and manage your new services via our online management platform, called Mission Control.
Please note: If you already have an active domain (e.g.yourdomain.com.au) DO NOT finalise its redelegation to Telstra or change the DNS settings with your host until after you've set up your website and/or mailboxes in Mission Control.
1. Accessing Mission Control.
To enter Mission Control, simply open https://missioncontrol.pm.telstra.com in your web browser and login using your assigned username and password which can be found at the end of this notification.
2. Setting up your Business Mail mailboxes.
i) In Mission Control, click Business Mail in the left hand menu.
ii) Click Edit/Create Mailboxes in the sub menu.
iii) From the New Mailbox options, select Business Mail POP, Standard
iv) Click the Create Mailbox button
v) Enter the appropriate details.
vi) Click Save.
3. Setting up SMTP Mass Email (if ordered)
SMTP Mass Email lets Business Mail POP email customers send high volume email (such as bulk emails). There is no limit on the number of emails sent, however an individual message cannot be more than 20MB.
If you ordered an SMTP Mass Email service, please wait 48 hours before using this service. After this time you can start using it by simply changing the outbound mail server in your email client to smtp-au.server-mail.com
4. Setting up your Business Online website (if ordered).
Instructions for setting up your Business Online service are located in Mission Control, under Help Me > Documentation. There are also several tools to help you get up and running quickly, including a Quick Start Guide, the Business Online Website Builder User's Guide and a Business Online User's Guide
5. Managing your domain name.
* If your domain name will be hosted by Telstra
When you redelegate an existing domain name to Telstra Hosting, we'll email you a Redelegation Request form. This form must be completed and returned to us - but only after you have set up your website and mailboxes in Mission Control.
Once your new or redelegated domain name is launched on our Domain Name
Servers, it can take up to two days to be replicated on other servers so
internet and email users to access your services. (This delay can vary
with domain name types and the domain name authority involved.)
* If your domain name is being hosted elsewhere
If your existing domain name will be hosted by another service provider
or Telstra CustData, you'll need to give your host the following DNS
settings for Business Mail and/or Business Online. With Telstra
Custdata, you can update the DNS settings yourself, online.
Remember to co-ordinate Domain Name Renewals with your host, so that
your email and website services are not interrupted. (Telstra Hosting
manages renewals for its customers.)
Primary MX Record:
Host Name mx1.pm.telstra.com
Secondary MX Record:
Host Name mx2.pm.telstra.com
You'll find a range of comprehensive help in the Help Me > Documentation
section of Mission Control. If you need further assistance, please call
