Mail/Image Hosting

Do we each have a mail address?

If so, how would we access that address?

I remember when I first came here I was able to call up some big menu with all these different functions (none of which I comprehended), and now I can't find that again.

Is there a place we can upload images so that I'm not always leeching bandwidth off other blogs for my cowbell gifs?

You just save images to your computer then upload them using the MT console. It is the third button down on the editing menu on the left side of the console.

The other thing is called cPanel. It is tricky. I have it bookmarked and keep my access info in a file, just in case the computer cookie loses it.

We also have the ability to set up e-mail through the MuNu account. You'll need to access that through CPanel.

Open cPanel, click on Mail then Add/Remove accounts. Add your account ( or whatever you want) and then you're done.

In your mail program, your servers would be (for both the SMTP and POP server).

If I can help in any other way, you know where I am.

Thanks, but...

...okay, I see how to upload a picture. But once uploaded, what is its URL? I mean, okay, I can upload something, but where is it stored so that I can use that URL instead of the URL I'm using now?

Where is this "cPanel" thingee?

Your CPanel thingy is at

And your mail server will be just, not (The latter will actually work at the moment, because everything munu is on the same server, but might not work in the future.)

When you upload something using the MT upload thingy, it will land in your archives directory by default, or you can select the base directory or a subdirectory.

In the default case, it will then be - or you can just refer to it as /archives/image.jpg if you like.
