Q: Do I need a separate application to manage my Spam messages?

A: Spam Management/Settings are integrated in the Webmail platform. There is no need for a separate application as Spam messages can be managed within your mailbox settings.

 

Q: What are the supported port numbers for hosted emails?

A: Hosted email servers listen on all standard SMTP, POP3 and IMAP ports. They are as follows:

SMTP:  25, 587, 1025

SMTPs (ssl): 465

POP3:  110

POP3s (ssl): 995

IMAP: 143

IMAPs (ssl): 993

 

Q: When selecting TLS or SSL based connection, I get a certificate notice asking me to accept the certificate.  Why is this?

A:  The reason this happens is because you are likely using mail(yourdomain).com to connect to the mail server. When the mail client verifies the certificate against the domain there is a mismatch event so a warning pops up.  Intelligently designed email clients will allow the subscriber to accept the certificate and it will never ask again.  Other email clients (like Outlook) will pop-up this warning every time they open Outlook.

To avoid this notice all-together in Outlook or other email clients, instead of using mail.yourdomain.com for email, use securemail7.megamailservers.com as your incoming and outgoing mail server.

 

Q: Do we offer services for managing subscribers’ domain?

A: No. We do not offer such services.
