Accessing Mailboxes with multiple devices

The mailboxes we provide with our web based hosting are basic POP3 email accounts with a fixed mailbox size. These accounts are not designed to be used solely as webmail or IMAP accounts. These accounts do not provide full mailbox syncing.

Setting up multiple device access

  1. First set up a primary device for managing the mail account. This should be a desktop or laptop using a POP3 email client such as MS Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, or Opera Mail and the mail account should be set as POP3 not IMAP.
  2. On this primary device, configure the settings to leave a copy of the mail on the server for 7 days. This will leave a copy of mail in the inbox in email account. Any email older than 7 days will then be deleted and the copy of the email on the primary device will then be the only copy.
  3. Now set up any secondary devices to access the mail account. These devices will see any mail from the past 7 days that is still on the server.

Please Note
Only email from the past 7 days will be available on the secondary devices. Any sent mail will not be synced across devices.

Best solution for synced mailboxes

If you want to have full mailbox syncing across all devices then you need to be be looking at a dedicated Cloud mail hosting solution. These offer full inbox, sent mail, calendar and contact syncing between multiple devices with all the mail being stored in the Cloud service and not locally on the computer, tablet or mobile phone.

Such hosted Cloud mail solutions include

Please Note
If you choose to use one of these Cloud Email Solutions, all email accounts associated with your domain name need to go through the service.
