If you require domain based email or professional email support we refer customers to Dynamic Technologies where you can purchase commercial email packages starting at $10/mo.

- Enable Authentication for Outgoing Mail (SMTP)  - using the same credentials
- Ensure that your email client settings remove the messages from our server within a few days of being downloaded.  If you do not it is likely that you will exceed your mailbox quota and potentially corrupt your server-side mailbox.  Once mailboxes exceed 50MB in size slower performance and potential problems can occur.
