How about cons? In fact, the only one – in this version all the same you use a third-party mail server. That in which case the liability with lift themselves – for free time. Again, as mail would not be on your server, such as the site. (Although when you buy a shared hosting, but do not have a personal server, you are so and so do not keep their hands in everything – you rent it. You may want to visit Cowan Financial to increase your knowledge. And which case the hoster will get out with terrible force. Connect with other leaders such as Transcendent Investment Management here. ), But as an option, Google offers a paid package – $ 50 per year for each mailbox. In this case, they guarantee 99.9% uptime e-mail quota increase to 25 GB on an account, well, a number of bells and whistles just for corporate customers. Well, the very name of Google (even for the free version) speaks for itself – many trust him wholeheartedly.

So, whether it is necessary it? Then begin! First, go to the registration page. Select the option “Administrator: I am the owner of this domain or controlling it,” enter the domain name, and click on “Getting Started”. Open application form, which must be fill in (fields with asterisks). After completion you will be asked to create administrator account, for example. On this account, you can fully control the email: set up connection cozdavat / delete new mail boxes, etc. Well, as usual case it will also work. After you enter directly into the administrator account. Boxes you able to add, this is easy.

Secure Your Faxing the Easy way with Email to Fax software

Posted on : 20-12-2011 | By : admin | In : Uncategorized

Many organizations that send out confidential information, such as those in healthcare, rely on faxing and the ability to move fax to email using a software solution that is becoming a better alternative to traditional faxing.
Adding email to fax capabilities within healthcare practices is an inexpensive and easy way to solve many problems associated with transferring medical records from one location to another, whether that is a pharmacy, a referral, or an insurance carrier. Email to fax services are offered by fax server software, which can be installed on its own hardware or added to an existing email server. In either case, it offers easy ways for users to communicate via email to fax as simply as using their existing email package to pick another medical practice from their contact list and hit send. Fax server software also provides the ability to print to fax, making sending a fax as easy as printing, and entering the destination fax number. In either case, users are able to securely send faxes without the need for a dedicated machine, or the time it takes to print, fax, and file paper copies of the electronic information stored in your EMR/EHR system.

Email to fax also works for you in reverse, taking incoming faxes and delivering them to your inbox as a fax or PDF attachment. The fax server can send a specific fax to the correct user based on the number or extension dialed, or the CSID of the sending fax. The best fax server software packages offer optional optical character recognition, letting them “read” the fax cover sheet to deliver to the right person. The user gets an email in their inbox, and can view, file, or print the fax as they see fit. Fax server software can even route an incoming fax directly into your EMR/EHR system by delivering an incoming fax to a network folder monitored by your software.
The best thing about email to fax is how it helps with HIPAA compliance. The server running the fax server software is in a secured area with your other IT servers, there’s no fax machine with sent and received faxes laying around, and incoming faxes are securely delivered to the proper user without anyone needing to ‘stand guard’ at a fax machine. Auditing and logging are built right in, so you can be sure than anything a user might email to fax is logged along with the delivery confirmation report. And since that is all handled electronically, there’s no paper that needs to be filed away.
Adding email to fax capabilities is an easy way to add convenience, efficiency, security, and compliance to your healthcare practice’s faxing needs. Look for software that can do OCR, plug into your existing email software, and can work with network shares to get the most benefit from this great technology. The next time someone wants you to send them medical records, instead of shuffling paper back and forth, you can just email to fax!

Gmail Mail Server Is Blocked

Posted on : 20-12-2011 | By : admin | In : Uncategorized

Tags: , ,


If you connect to a network and find yourself unable to connect to Gmail, it may be because the service is blocked. Private networks including schools and businesses, as well as Internet Service Providers (ISP) may choose to block access to Gmail services. Depending on the type of block used, you may be able to circumvent the block to successfully access your Gmail account.

Colocation HostingSetup Hosting
Blockage Scenarios
Gmail is accessible via the website http://www.gmail.com/ and via protocols POP3 (pop.gmail.com, port 995), IMAP (imap.gmail.com port, ) and SMTP (smtp.gmail.com port 487 for TLS/STARTTLS authentication; or smtp.gmail.com port 465 for SSL authentication.) Network administrators may block any one, a combination or all Gmail services by adding these addresses and ports to the network firewall blacklist.

Alternate URLs
The Gmail web client can be accessed from more than one URL. Depending on how thorough the firewall’s blacklist is, you may be able to access Gmail through alternative URLs. For example, if you discover that http:///www.gmail.com/ is blocked, try accessing Gmail via the following URLs: http://mail.google.com/, http://www.googlemail.com/, or http://m.gmail.com/. This workaround will only work if the alternate URLs have not been entered into the network firewall blacklist.

A web proxy can allow you to bypass your local network security permissions to access a blocked Gmail websites. You can enter in the address of a proxy server in your browser or use a proxy website to access blocked websites. Proxy.org and Privax are directories of commonly used Web proxy servers and proxy websites.

Protocol Workarounds
Desktop clients can access Gmail by connecting to Gmail mail servers via the POP or IMAP mail protocols. If you encounter an error trying to set up your desktop client to access your Gmail account with either of these receive mail protocols, try the other one. For example, if you encounter an issue when trying to access your mailbox via POP, try configuring the client to use IMAP instead. If you can receive Gmail via your desktop client but cannot send mail via the Gmail SMTP server, use an alternate SMTP server.

Physical Workarounds
Administrators may choose to block all Web and protocol access to Gmail. The only workaround in this scenario is to bypass the network completely, either by using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) service or using an alternate means of connecting to the Internet, for example using a mobile wireless 3G or 4G connection on your smartphone.

Before attempting to find a workaround for a suspected Gmail server blockage, contact your network administrator or customer service desk for clarification on outside email policies. Attempting to workaround a Gmail blockage on a private network such as a company or school may violate network terms of service and can be subject to disciplinary action.

The Difference Between POP3, IMAP, and Exchange in Email

Posted on : 20-12-2011 | By : admin | In : Uncategorized

Tags: , ,


What is the difference between POP3, IMAP, and Exchange? Keep reading to find out more about the difference between the various ways to receive email. Today, we will be focusing on some answering some of the most common stumbling blocks when it comes to setting up new email accounts, and explaining the difference.

Difference between email clients and webmail
Before we explain the different protocols used to download emails, let’s understand the simpler stuff, the difference between email clients and webmail.

If you have ever started a Gmail, Hotmail, or other email account, chances are you have used webmail. If you work in an office and use a program like Microsoft Outlook, Windows Live Mail, or Mozilla Thunderbird to manage your emails, you are using an email client.

Both webmail and email clients are applications for sending and receiving email, and they use similar methods for doing this. Webmail is an application that is written to be operated over the internet through a browser, usually with no downloaded applications or additional software necessary. All of the work, so to speak, is done by remote computers (i.e. servers and machines you connect to through the internet).

Email clients are programs that are installed on local machines (i.e. your computer, or the computers in your office) to interact with remote email servers to download and send email to whomever you might care to. Some the back end work of sending email and all of the front end work of creating a user interface (what you look at to receive your email) is done on your computer with the installed application, rather than by your browser with instructions from the remote server. However, many webmail providers allow users to use email clients with their service.

We sign up for a new email address with Google’s Gmail and begin sending and receiving email through the webmail service. Google is providing two things for us—a web frontend, and a mail server backend for sending and receiving the emails. We communicate with the email server backend by using the webmail frontend. Through our pointing, clicking, and typing, we are telling the email server who we want to send email to, and what we want to say.

But, we might decide that we don’t like Google’s new look for Gmail, so we decide to switch to an email client, like the free program Thunderbird. Instead of using our web based client (Gmail’s web interface) to interact with Google’s Gmail servers (the mail server backend), we use a program installed on our computers (in this case, Thunderbird) to contact the mail server backend ourselves, and sidestep webmail altogether. Google (and other webmail providers) offer all of these products, including the web frontend and the mail server backend.

You can use both of them or only the mail server backend and still be using “Gmail.” And with that confusion dispelled, let’s take a look at the common email protocols you will run into using email clients or mobile phones.

POP3 or Post Office Protocol
POP, or Post Office Protocol, is a way of retrieving email information that dates back to a very different internet than we use today. Computers only had limited, low bandwidth access to remote computers, so engineers created POP in an effort to create a dead simple way to download copies of emails for offline reading, then remove those mails from the remote server. The first version of POP was created in 1984, with the POP2 revision created in early 1985.

POP3 is the current version of this particular style of email protocol, and still remains one of the most popular. Since POP3 creates local copies of emails and deletes the originals from the server, the emails are tied to that specific machine, and cannot be accessed via any webmail or any separate client on other computers. At least, not without doing a lot of email forwarding or porting around mailbox files.

While POP3 is based on an older model of offline email, there’s no reason to call it obsolete technology, as it does have its uses. POP4 has been proposed, and may be developed one day, although there’s not been much progress in several years.

Microsoft Exchange, MAPI, and Exchange ActiveSync
Microsoft began developing MAPI (sometimes called Messaging API) not long after IMAP and POP were first developed, although it has uses beyond simple email. Thoroughly comparing IMAP and POP to MAPI is pretty technical, and out of scope for many readers of this article.

Simply put, MAPI is a way for applications and email clients to communicate with Microsoft Exchange servers, and is capable of IMAP style syncing of emails, contacts, calendars, and other features, all tied into local email clients or applications. This function of syncing emails is branded by Microsoft as “Exchange ActiveSync.” Depending on what device, phone, or client you use, this same technology might be called any of the three Microsoft products (Microsoft Exchange, MAPI, or Exchange ActiveSync), but will offer the same cloud-based email syncing as IMAP.

Because Exchange and MAPI are Microsoft products, only companies that own their own Exchange mail servers or use Windows Live Hotmail will be able to use Exchange. Many clients, including the default Android mail client and iPhone, are Exchange ActiveSync capable, giving Hotmail users IMAP style cloud-based email, despite Hotmail not offering true IMAP functionality.

IMAP, Internet Message Access Protocol
IMAP was created in 1986, but seems to suit the modern day world of omnipresent, always-on internet connectivity quite well. The idea was keep users from having to be tied to a single email client, giving them the ability to read their emails as if they were “in the cloud.”

Compared to POP3, IMAP allows users to log into many different email clients or webmail interfaces and view the same emails, because the emails are kept on remote email servers until the user deletes them. In a world where we now check our email on web interfaces, email clients, and on mobile phones, IMAP has become extremely popular. It isn’t without its problems, though.

Because IMAP stores emails on a remote mail server, you’ll have a limited mailbox size depending on the settings provided by the email service. If you have huge numbers of emails you want to keep, you could run into problems sending and receiving mail when your box is full. Some users sidestep this problem by making local archived copies of emails using their email client, and then deleting them from the remote server.

Other Email Protocols
there are other protocols for sending, recieving, and using email, but most of us that are using plain old free webmail and mobile phones will be using one of these three major ones. Since these three technologies cover the needs of nearly all HTG readers, we won’t be spending time today talking about the others. If you have any experience using email protocols not listed here, we’re interested to hear about it.

Now when you know how essential it is to have properly programmed SMTP mail server software in your system. With the software, sending and receiving emails becomes very convenient. Electronic mails are normally opted in recent times, because even a kid of current times is a computer savvy. As soon as you click on the ‘Send’ button, the mail server checks whether the recipient server is valid and does it possess a Domain Name Registration. Once the server verifies everything, it informs the recipient’s machine about the waiting message, which then instantly accepts it and thereby triggers another confirmation mail informing the sender about the successful delivery. This is what makes email server SMTP a definite need.

With the help of the email server SMTP, it is guaranteed that all the ISP restriction, which prohibits many mails to enter the inbox of the recipients, would be replaced conveniently. This, in turn, ensures the senders that their mails would surely reach the specified destination.

Why email forwarding is bad for your mail server reputation

Posted on : 20-12-2011 | By : admin | In : Uncategorized

Tags: , ,


Email forwarding is a popular feature among users who prefer a single email account for receiving emails from different email addresses that they own. However this convenience might contribute to hamper your email server’s reputation. In addition to the increased load for the server to handle when emails get rejected by your remote email account mail server (for various reasons) which get filled up in the queue, it may also get your mail server blacklisted.
Let us consider the following example where John has the email account “john.example@gmail.com” and is forwarding several of his email addresses (like mail@john.com which are hosted on his server) to the Gmail account. Spammers usually use a fake email address when sending spam emails as they don’t want to receive the bounced messages and does not want to identify who they really are. When mail@john.com receives such a spam email, the mail server would forward this email directly to his Gmail account since the email forwarding feature in a cPanel server forwards all emails without any SpamAssassin filtering. During the email delivery to Gmail’s server, Gmail’s spam filter will detect it as a spam email and would filter it to the spam folder while some remote mail server might just reject the email. Gmail is unlikely to bounce as it would filter to spam folder however when there are too much similar spam emails in a short span of time it will start blocking the email server and the email is bounced. This bounced email is sent back to Johns mail server. John’s mail server will then try to send this bounced email back to the original sender, but that email will never go out because the original sender (the spammer) used an e-mail address that does not exist. Since the email never reaches the original sender, the email gets added to the mail server queue. The mail server keeps retrying to get the email delivered again depending on the interval set in the mail server thereby creating unnecessary load for the mail server. When there are many spam emails received at the forwarding email address the remote mail server will reject all emails thinking John’s mail server is sending spam emails as it sees the spam emails to be originating from John’s mail server. Eventually it can get blacklisted as well and legitimate emails from the mail server will also get blocked.
Another potential problem is when the remote mail server uses SPF for validating the sender. Since email forwarding works like impersonating the sender as the receiving mail server just forwards the email to maintain the sender address, remote email servers with SPF will not allow the email to go through as the sending mail server could not be validated to the actual source details.
In both cases, John’s mail server is seen as the spammer, and as a result the reputation of the mail server is affected. The situation becomes worse when “catch-all” email forwarding is enabled, where EVERYTHING@john.com is forwarded. If there is a spam attack where the spammer sends thousands of emails to ANYTHING@john.com – all of which are forwarded on, results in blacklisting of John’s mail server.
* Forwarding “Catch-all emails” to an external mail server should be avoided. The best solution is to set the default box to :fail: so that messages are rejected and bounced back.
* Instead of using email forwarding, create an email account instead of email forwarder address and use POP feature in your main email account (like Gmail) to retrieve those emails. Email forwarding under the same domain/server will be fine.

Recently we were asked to acquire a new domain for the company and start to implement it to be our main web domain name and to map email accounts to it. The company already had another domain names for years with .net extension and the new domain was with .com

We have responded to the request and acquired the new domain, chnaged the DNS records and MX records to point to the new domain and then we have configured email alias with the new domain for the existing email accounts, and finally reconfigured email clients to use the new alias when sending email. The company uses MDaemon email server v.12 and every thing was going fine till we had some complains that there are certain domain refuse to accept email from the company’s usesr and it was considered spam. and failure message sent by the other mail server contained something like this:

Transfer Complete Wed 2011-11-16 03:27:58: Default Domain & Servers:

We have added the existing header header text: company.net and the New header test: company.com

Since then, no more spam failuer messages

If you have comment please share it and if you would like to share an article or a tip
