How can I receive my email orders securely?
Email email@example.com to set up your secure email
service. This service is usually done free of charge.
What does POP3 / SMTP mail servers stand for?
Post Office 3 Protocol and Simple Mail Transfer Protocol. One is used for holding email and the other is for sending out email. Make sure that your incoming POP3 server is set to mail.finalhost.com and NOT mail.yourdomain.com.
You can use a traditional email client such as Microsoft® Outlook®, Eudora®
or Netscape® Communicator as your email client.
What is E-Mail forwarding/aliasing?
Email forwarding is a way for you to have email messages that are sent to one address automatically forwarded to a different address. For example, your customers may send all of their requests for information to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org. You could set up your email so that all of the messages sent to that address are automatically forwarded to your personal email account at
An email alias is a “virtual” email account. It enables you to use an email address that doesn’t really exist and have all the messages sent to that address routed to a real email account.
For example, you may want to provide a link on your Web site that enables visitors to send email to the Web Master, who is really you. You can use the email alias email@example.com but have the email routed to your real email account.
What is an email redirect?
It is the same
as email alias/forwarding.
What is the "catch-all" function?
The catch-all function enables you to accept emails whose intended recipient does not exist in your domain. For example, let's assume you created two POP email accounts (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) and one email alias (firstname.lastname@example.org that redirects to email@example.com) in Members Control Panel. If someone sends an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, an account that currently does not exist, then the email will still be received.
However, a substantial disadvantage to the catch-all function is that it catches far more spam than legitimate emails.
What is an email autoresponder?
An email autoresponder sends an automated email response to each incoming message that is sent to a specific address. For example, a potential customer may send an email to email@example.com asking for more information about some of your products. You can have the autoresponder send a prewritten message back to the customer thanking them for their interest and letting them know that a sales representative will be contacting them shortly. This feature helps you to improve your company’s image, as your customers will know right away that you have received their email and that you are responsive to their needs.
