You may prefer to have a cosmetically attractive and professional-looking email address associated with a domain name, for example: firstname.lastname@example.org There are 3 options: IMAP, POP3 and Forwarder. We discourage the use of POP3.
Emails may be downloaded from the email server to your computer; they are automatically saved on the server and the file structure on the server mirrors that on your computer's email client software.
Emails are downloaded from the email server to your computer; they are normally deleted from the server.
Each mailbox using website's domain with 1GB storage:
|£20 per annum|
Additional 1GB storage per mailbox:
|£10 per annum|
N.B.1 Normal emails (without photo and other attachments) are very small – just a few kB (kilobytes) so the standard space of 1GB (1 gigabyte = 1,000,000,000 bytes) allocated for the basic service is enough for over 40,000 emails without attachments containing over 2000 words each. If you are using the standard POP3 account, and you download your emails, the server storage goes down to zero. If you need extra storage space you can purchase it at £10 per 1GB.
N.B.2 Domain name: If you don't already have a website domain we may need to purchase one at a small extra cost.
They allow you to forward e-mail from email@example.com to another email address e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org. We make no charge for these.
The best of these is probably Gmail
We suggest you do not use this option e.g. email@example.com. If you change your service provider you'll spend much time training your contacts to use your replacement email address.
