Q: Do I need a separate application to manage my Spam messages?
A: Spam Management/Settings are integrated into the Webmail platform. There is no need for a separate application as Spam messages can be managed within your mailbox settings.
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 that 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 mail.userservices.net as your incoming and outgoing mail server.
Q: I accidentally deleted important emails in my mailbox, can I still restore them?
A: Our email servers can keep deleted emails to up to 14 days. After such period, deleted emails can no longer be recovered.
Q: How do I recover deleted messages?

A: No. Email backup is currently not offered.
Q: Can I change my email password directly from webmail?
A: No. You can change your email password by logging in to your Account Manager or contacting the Support Team to facilitate password change.
Q: How do I increase my disk space for my email?
A: First, be aware that a lot of SPAM email can build up in your Junk folder, this can sometimes account for limiting your disk space. To avoid this, it is best to empty your junk mail folder periodically. To empty your junk mail folder, select the folder and right click (an option to “Empty Folder” will appear) then select “Delete” to empty the folder contents.
You can also archive them in a local folder in an email client, and then they can be deleted from the account. This also frees up space.
