Rackspace Email Setup Tool

Image for Rackspace Email Setup Tool

Have an email account hosted by Rackspace that you need to set up? Or do you host your clients sites and email accounts at Rackspace and need to send them email account set up info?

Check out this tool: a way more friendly way than an FAQ on setting up your email account on all major operating systems, apps and devices.
You only need to know your username (email address) and password.

It walks you through the rest of your email client set up – and even auto-detects some things, like your operating system.

Very nifty, and surely beats typing up instructions for clients about setting up email.

Owner and principal of Q Digital Studio

Susan Snipes's avatar

Susan Snipes is the owner and principal of Q Digital Studio. Friends of Susan used to call her Susie Q, Miss Q, or just Q.  The nicknames may not have stuck, but that infamous letter Q became the namesake for Susan’s dream: her own business.  Now Miss Q is making a name for herself as a community-minded web entrepreneur and ExpressionEngine expert.

As a college student at Case Western Reserve University, Susan became interested in web design, and self-taught her way into a number of freelance gigs.  She left Cleveland with a degree in Art History and Architecture, but found her true calling in web design and development. Susan worked in New Orleans before migrating west to Denver, a place she happily calls home with her husband Corey and dog, Marla Muttlesworth.

Susan quickly achieved distinction in the Denver design community as a forward-thinking web developer whose work is both creative and consistent.  Q Digital Studio is founded on principals of sustainability and integrity, values that are near and dear to Susan’s heart.

When Susan’s not planning design conferences or fearlessly leading the Q Digital Studio team, she enjoys cooking and watching movies.
