Email

Full set of email features for your hosting including aliases, spam settings, webmail, and more.

FEATURES
DESCRIPTION
Secure Email Accounts

You can create unlimited no. of email accounts @yourdomain with our web hosting plans. You can read and send email with encryption protection available using popular free email clients such as Windows Live Mail (formerly Windows Mail and Outlook Express), Apple Mail, Thunderbird and many other clients. Customize your email address (you@yourdomain) to enhance your professional image.

Customize your email address (you@yourdomain) to enhance your professional image.

iPhone™ / BlackBerry™ / Palm™ / Mobile Device Compatible
All of our packages are fully compatible with most mobile email devices such as iPhone™, BlackBerry™, Palm™ and more. That means you can access your email on the go from anywhere!
Web Mail
Webmail allows you to check your email from a web browser as opposed to a desktop mail application such as Outlook Express or Thunderbird. This means that you can check your email from any web browser. We include Horde, SquirrelMail and RoundCube with all our hosting packages.
Email Alias

The email alias is not a real email address, but can in some cases act as such. It is capable of receiving emails, but instead of storing them, it automatically forwards them to a real mailbox. This way, you can create various mailboxes for a complex website, but have them all pointing to a single email address.

With an email alias in action, all emails will be stored in the original mailbox, while the alias mailbox will always remain empty.

Auto Responders
Every plan comes with unlimited email auto responders. You have the option to turn on an automatic response email for every email address you host with us. If you have one turned on, every time somebody sends an email to that address they will immediately get a reply email with whatever message you choose.
Mailing Lists

Mailing lists can simplify sending messages to a large group of people. You can add a group of email addresses to a mailing list to avoid typing in those addresses each time a mailing is sent. This can be very useful when sending newsletters or other updates to large groups of people.

The mailing lists option in cPanel uses Mailman, a Python application that manages your lists. There are other options for creating mailing lists, including PHPlist which is installable from xInstaller.

Anti-Virus Scanning
All emails sent to any of your email addresses set up at your website address will be scanned for any and all known viruses. Our anti-virus software is updated frequently across our network and thus blocks most of the known viruses.
SpamAssassin

SpamAssassin is an automated mail filter that uses a wide range of heuristic algorithms on email headers and message bodies to identify "SPAM" (unsolicited email). SpamAssassin is designed to identify and mark emails that score beyond your threshold value.

An email's SpamAssassin score is the sum of values given to certain known spam characteristics. It is an useful tool for reducing the spam you get.

Customizable Spam Filters
Unique customizable spam filter allows users to fine-tune the junk mail filter settings by "training" the filter. You just indicate which emails are junk and which are not and the filters automatically adjust to be more accurate for the type of mail you receive.
Customizable Email Filters
Custom mail handling rules give you additional mail handing rules including block list and advanced custom mail handling rules.
Email Forwarding
Email forwarding is similar to the function of the email alias - all emails received in a mailbox with an active email forwarding option will be automatically sent to a different mailbox. However, with email forwarding on, the emails will be stored in the mailbox, which originally received them.
POP3
POP3 stands for a Post Office Protocol version 3. The POP3 protocol is designed to allow the users to retrieve email messages when they are connected to the email server (via Internet, Ethernet or VPN network connection). Once the email messages are downloaded from the server they can be modified, read and manipulated offline.
IMAP
We support the Internet Message Access Protocol. IMAP permits a "client" email program to access remote message stores as if they were local.
SMTP
Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) is an Internet standard for email transmission across Internet Protocol (IP) networks.
Modifiable MX Record
Our customers have the option to modify MX records by themselves, allowing incoming mail to be directed to another mail server.
