Disk StorageTop

Disk storage measures the amount of data that is stored on our servers based on the email messages and files that are in your folders & storage.

Disk space is a factor in how we price our email accounts. We offer both shared and fixed disk space plans. With our personal (one mailbox or email address) email plans, the maximum allowable disk space for the account is fixed. You can view our personal email plans by clicking the link Personal Email Plans.

Our business (more than one mailbox or email address) email plans allow you to choose between a shared disk space plan or a fixed disk space plan. You may view our business email plans by clicking the link Business Email Plans. There are tabs on this page that will enable you to switch back and forth between shared and fixed disk space plans.

To view your current disk space usage for your email account, login to your account and click on the 'Today' link and then click on the 'Application Status' icon at the lower left hand side of the screen. Check the option 'Disk Space' if it is not checked and then click anywhere in the disk space meter area to bring up a detailed view of your disk space usage.

If you have a business email plan and you want to view the disk space for all of your email accounts, you may login to your main admin account and then click on 'Settings' and then on 'Email Account Management'. You will see a 'Disk Space' column there that displays the disk space usage for each individual email account.

If your disk space is low for any account, you will receive an automated email message alert. You can then delete email to restore disk space or you can request an account upgrade by sending an email to support@emailhosting.com.

# of MailboxesTop

The number of mailboxes refers to the actual number of email accounts that you have available in your plan. Each mailbox has its own separate login. The email address that you supply upon sign-up is your admin mailbox from which you can administer all of your other mailboxes.

All personal email plans come with only one mailbox or email address. All business email plans allow for more than one email account. You may view our business plans by clicking the link Business Email Plans. You will see the number of mailboxes that are available for each plan. Pricing is based on the number of mailboxes that you select.

After you choose a plan, you may upgrade at anytime as your needs grow. Also, if your needs exceed the plans listed on our site, simply send an email to support@emailhosting.com and tell us how many mailboxes you need and we will customize a solution for you. We can accomodate any number of mailboxes on our system.

Consolidator AccountsTop

Consolidator accounts are accounts such as your hotmail, gmail, yahoo, earthlink, mindspring, etc. in addition to your IMAP or POP3 email accounts from which our system can periodically pull messages from into your email hosting account with us so that you do not have to login to multiple accounts daily to see all of your email. You can even reply back to messages for these consolidator accounts from your email hosting account as if you were responding from the consolidator account.

To setup consolidator accounts, login to your account and then click on 'Settings', 'Mail Aliases and Consolidation', 'Consolidator Accounts' and then on the 'Consolidate a new account' button.

WebmailTop

There are many ways to check your email using our system including webmail, third-party email client (Outlook, etc) and mobile phone. You can access webmail from any computer anywhere as long as you have an internet connection. All of the features listed here on this page apply to your webmail.

To access webmail, you may visit EmailHosting.com and then click on the 'My Account' link at the top of the page. Then, you will enter your username and password and select 'Email Hosting' from the drop-down menu if it is not already selected as the default. Next, you will click on 'Login'. Alternatively, you may access your webmail using http://webmail.yourdomain.com. For example, if you own the domain name xyz.com, you could access your webmail using http://webmail.xyz.com. To set this up, you would add a CNAME record to your DNS. Basically, if you have a website on your domain name, you would contact your web hosting company and request that they add the CNAME record webmail.yourdomain.com in CNAME www.mailanyone.net. If you do not have a website on your domain name, you would simply contact your domain name registration company where you purchased your domain name and request that they add this CNAME record for you.

We pride ourselves in providing the richest webmail experience for our users; and so, we always welcome comments and take them into consideration when implementing newer versions of our webmail. Your opinions are the foundation for our webmail product. To view a demo of our webmail, please click here.

IMAP/POP3Top

If you want to use a third party email client such as Outlook with our email service, you will have a choice of setting it up using IMAP or POP3. We provide step-by-step tutorials for setting up your email client using IMAP or POP3 on our Tutorials page.

IMAP and POP3 are two different email protocols. You should select POP3 if you plan on accessing your email from one computer only since email is typically downloaded locally with this protocol. If you need access to your email from anywhere, then you should use IMAP since the protocol keeps email on the server until you delete it.

SMTPTop

SMTP is a protocol that we use to send email over the Internet. IMAP and POP3 are protocols that are used to receive email. When setting up an email client such as Outlook with our service, you will need to enter SMTP settings. You will see those settings on our Tutorials page.

Spam FilteringTop

All mailboxes are protected from spam using a spam filtering setup that uses Bayesian filtering and smart rules. We stop spam at the gateway; and so, it rarely ever reaches your inbox. Aside from spam not entering your inbox, we do ensure that all legitimate email is delivered to your inbox through our spam scoring technology.

We do our best to ensure spam free mailboxes so that you can focus only on messages that deserve your attention. You will be able to whitelist email addresses, IP addresses or domains so that messages that match the ones noted will always land in your inbox. Alternatively, you will also be able to add email addresses, IP addresses or domains to your blacklist so that these messages coming from these sources are treated as spam.

To modify your spam settings, login to your account and then click on 'Settings', 'Anti-spam' and 'Anti-spam Settings'. Spam reports are also available for your review.

Virus FilteringTop

We provide the most comprehensive email virus protection for all mailboxes. Our system stops viruses at the gateway; and so, they never reach your company network. Both incoming and outgoing messages are scanned for viruses. Our system also automatically updates with new virus definitions every minute. As such, you can feel safe opening any attachments that you have received in your inbox. If a virus is detected in an attachment, the attachment is stripped and only the message is delivered without the attachment.

To modify your virus settings, login to your account and then click on 'Settings', 'Anti-spam' and 'Anti-spam Settings'. You will see anti-virus scanning options through this interface.

Mail RulesTop

Mail rules allow you to manage your incoming and outgoing email messages. With our mail rules system, you have tons of flexibility. You may setup multiple conditions as well as multiple actions. Additionally, you may even apply new mail rules to existing messages. We believe that managing the messages that you send/receive is very important. As such, we provide you with the tools to keep your mailbox organized based on your preferences.

To setup mail rules, login to your account and click on 'Settings', 'Mail Rules' and then on the 'Add a Rule' button.

99.99% UptimeTop

Our email system operates on a network that ranks amongst the best in the industry in terms of network performance and service availability. In the unlikely rare case that our email servers become unavailable, our system automatically spools and queues your email so that you do not receive any bounced messages. Then, when the system is back up, your messages are automatically delivered to your inbox. No one wins when email is down and we have taken all of the necessary steps to ensure that our system is always up and running.

Mailing ListsTop

Our email system does NOT allow sending bulk email; however, you are welcome to create distribution or mailing lists to send one message to a list of recipients.

To view your online storage area, login to your account and click on the main menu item 'Storage'. You may then upload files, delete files and add new folders.

Large(50MB) AttachmentsTop

All mailboxes are allowed a generous 50MB for each outgoing message. Therefore, your email message including your attachment may be up to 50MB in size. If you need to send larger attachments, we highly recommend using a service such as Send and Share Files On the Go which will allow you to send a link to your recipient which contains the large attachment.

WhitelistsTop

You may add email addresses and domain names to your whitelist. There are rare cases when legitimate email messages end up in your spam folder. If you are certain that the message should be delivered to your inbox, you may add the email address to your whitelist to ensure that it always ends up in your inbox. Adding an email address to your whitelist tells our spam system not to check for spam from any email coming from the whitelisted email address.

To setup archiving for your mailbox, login to your account and click on 'Settings' and then on 'Backup & Archiving'.

Data SecurityTop

Your mailbox data is hosted on a primary and secondary server; and so, if one of the server should happen to fail, the other one automatically takes over. Also, your data is housed in world-class datacenters manned 24/7/365. We go above and beyond to ensure that your data is safe and secure.

Email SignaturesTop

If you are using POP3 and downloading your messages to your local desktop and deleting the messages from the server, please note that we will not have any backups of your email. It is critical that you maintain your own backups in this case.

To restore email messages, login to your account and click on 'Settings', 'Backup & Archiving' and then on the 'Restore' menu item. Alternatively, you may send a message to support@emailhosting.com.

ImageFilterTop

In order to allow you a choice as to whether you want to view images within your email messages, you will have the option to click on links that display the image from within the message.

AliasesTop

You may add unlimited aliases onto any of our email plans. You may also use the wildcard * character to include all aliases for a domain name. Each email account that you create must have a corresponding alias in order to receive email.
