Email Facilities

Dependable email solutions for your business

POP3 Mailboxes
POP3 Mailboxes

If you need an email address you would typically create a POP3 mailbox to collect the email. It is then the job of your mail client (eg Outlook) to download the mail to your computer, or you can view it via our webmail. If you need the email address of sales@yourdomain.com then you would call your mailbox 'sales'.

IMAP Mailboxes
IMAP Mailboxes

IMAP mailboxes are an alternative to POP3, whereby the mail remains stored at all times on our servers. You can then connect multiple devices (eg your computer, your phone and your work laptop) to read and reply to your emails. Delete an email from your phone, and all devices reflect this deletion. 100MB mailboxes are available included in your package, but larger 1GB, 2GB and 5GB options are available.


Mail Forwards
Mail Forwards

If you need multiple email addresses, but don't necessary need separate POP3 or IMAP mailboxes, mail forwarders can help achieve this. You can set the forwarded address to direct to a mailbox, or externally to another address (eg your personal Gmail email).

Auto-Responders
Auto-Responders

Sometimes referred to as an out of office response, you can set our system to instantly reply to someone who has emailed you. This could be used to confirm that you are unable to reply, or to simply confirm receipt.


Group Addresses
Group Addresses

These are best implemented where multiple staff members need to receive a copy of the same email. For example, you may have a sales@ email address which you send copies to all of your sales staff to ensure that they act as quick as they can.

Catch-all
Catch-all

Catch-all email addresses ensure that you receive email no matter what address it has been sent to. This ensures you receive emails regardless of spelling. The downside being is that spammers can make great use of this sending to anything@yourdomain.com and you will receive it.


Spam & Virus Filtering
Spam & Virus Filtering (Option)

As an optional extra we can supply spam and virus filtering on your hosting account. This can help rid your mailbox of unwanted and potentially harmful mail. You have full control over the settings to alter sensitivity, and statistics show you just how powerful this can be.

Webmail
Webmail
