Hosting Email Services

Previous Next

Hosting services should include proper Email Accounts and Email Services.


Email Accounts

Hosting solutions should include email accounts for each person in your company.

Email addresses should appear something like this:

john@mycompany.com

john.doe@mycompany.com

jdoe@mycompany.com


POP Email

POP stands for Post Office Protocol. POP is a standard client/server protocol for sending and receiving email.

The emails are received and held on your internet server until you pick it up with a client email program, like Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird.


IMAP Email

IMAP stands for Internet Message Access Protocol. IMAP is another standard protocol for sending and receiving email.

The emails are received and held on your internet server until you pick it up with a client email program, like Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird.

IMAP represents an improvement over POP because email stored on an IMAP server can be manipulated from several computers (a computer at home, a workstation at the office, etc.) without having to transfer messages back and forth between computers. POP was designed to support email access on a single computer.


Web-based Email

Web-based email services enable you to access email via a web browser. You log into your email account via the Web to send and retrieve email. Being able to access your email from any browser anywhere in the world is a very attractive option.

Examples of web-based email services are Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, and Hotmail.


Email Forwarding

Email forwarding allows you to have multiple email personalities.

With email forwarding, you can setup aliases for other email accounts like

postmaster@mycompany.com should be forwarded to peter@mycompany.com

sales@mycompany.com should be forwarded to mary@mycompany.com


Mailing Lists

Some service providers offer mailing list capabilities. This is a valuable plus if you plan sending out email to a large number of users.
