POP3 email Account
The technical name for a standard email mailbox is called a POP3 Account. With POP3 email accounts, you can retrieve all emails addressed to your domain on our server. With multiple POP3 email boxes, you can have multiple addresses, such as firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. You may also set up addresses for members of your family, staff, or divisions within your company, such as firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Incoming Email arrives for you at Pentagon and is stored in your POP mailbox until you access it and delete it from the server.
You can have an actual mailbox, like at a post office, we can set up a forwarding mechanism to forward you incoming domain name address email to an existing mailbox (such as AOL or one that comes with your connectivity account).
The IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) is an Internet protocol that allows an email client to access email on a remote mail server. POP3 is another internet standard protocols for email retrieval.
The email forwarding feature enables you to forward emails sent from various addresses to one specific email box. This feature is available in all of our hosting plans. You can consolidate multiple email addresses, business and personal, to your personal mailbox at your local Internet Service Provider so that you can retrieve them all from one location.
Mailing lists area feature which provide users with an effective and efficient method of communicating with a number of people in an email environment. Whenever an email is sent to a mailing list address, it is immediately forwarded to all members of that list. The member list is maintained by the moderator of the list. A mailing list is a great way for turning email into a public forum or business tool.
Email Alias, "Default" Address
Email aliasing is a general forwarding technique- when no email user for your domain name matches a valid account or other forwarding address that you've set up, the email is transferred to use your "default" email alias address. Thus, if you have mailboxes a,b, and c, and someone sent an email to d or e then it would be transferred to your default address.
All email addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org will be delivered to your email box. You can use this feature to provide your customers with a variety of addresses to send their emails to, which in turn could help you sort out your incoming messages. You could have email@example.com for general questions, firstname.lastname@example.org for orders and more.
Another convenient usage of this feature is that you can set up a default transfer address, and then give out as many specific email addresses as you want without having to set up specific mailboxes. For example if you want to "track" how someone got your email address, you can for instance give out email@example.com when registering at amazon.com, then if you receive email addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org (which would go to your default mailbox address), then you know that the email came from or was linked (address lists sold) by Amazon.
Like Microsoft™ Outlook's "Out of Office Attendant," an Auto-responder is a feature that allows you to generate automatic customized responses whenever a specific email address receives an email. Typically, this feature is used by people when they are away, notifying the sender of an email that the recipient is away and will be back on a specified date. Alternatively, it can be used as a business tool to send specific responses with information, such as pricing information if a customer sends an email to a specific address, i.e. email@example.com.
When you set up an Auto-responder, you do not have to delete a similarly named POP username or forwarder. This allows you to temporarily set up an out-of-office message response.
