Before you start:
Make sure you know the correct email settings for your account. You can find these here.
If you don't have your email password, you can find it here
Ensure your SPF record is up to date. An ideal SPF record would look similar to this: "v=spf1 a mx include:spf.mailcluster.com.au include:_spf.google.com -all"
If your Nameservers are with us, you can update your SPF here
. Otherwise, speak with your domain registrar to make this change.
