Any domain hosted by DataWeb can use our full-featured email
services. These include:
When your domain is established on DataWeb, you will be given
an email administrator account
and you can create a new account and start receiving mail immediately.
An overview of the services is provided below. Complete configuration details can be found in the email administrator online help.
An email "mailbox" is an account with an associated
username and password (also known as a POP3 account). It can be accessed via a web browser or
with your favorite email program.
For example, you might have an account called "mike"
that receives mail sent to "email@example.com".
While traveling you could read this mail via
and while in the office you could configure your email program
to download and read the email on your own computer.
Aliases provide multiple email addresses for a single mailbox.
There is no additional charge for alias addresses - only mailboxes
and redirects incur a monthly fee.
For example, the mailbox "mike" may also have
aliases "mikem" and "webmaster", so that all
mail sent to any of the addresses will appear in Mike's mailbox.
A "redirect" is a special email account that
automatically forwards to another email address outside of your
domain. A redirect account is charged at the same rate as a
For example, you might have a redirect called "webmaster"
that receives mail sent to "firstname.lastname@example.org"
and then immediately forwards that mail to "email@example.com".
Catch-all Email Address
If someone sends email to your domain to an address that
doesn't exist, you can optionally send that mail to any mailbox (or
redirect) in your domain. This is often handy to catch misspelled
addresses, for example.
To establish a catch-all address, log in to the email
- Click on the middle (top) tab labeled: "Domain
- "Domain Settings" is now highlighted. Click
immediately below that on the tab labeled "Preferences"
- Enter the name of an existing mailbox in your domain in
the space provided
- Click on "Submit"
You're done! Now any mail to a non-existent address in your
domain will go to the mailbox you specified.
A distribution list is a group of email addresses in your
domain. This is a handy way of sending mail to multiple people
via one email address. There is no additional charge for
distribution lists - only mailbox and redirects incur a monthly
For example, you may have a distribution list called "staff"
that contains all the mailboxes in your domain so you can easily
send mail to everyone via the one email address of "firstname.lastname@example.org".
