Servage control panel – e-mail services

Tuesday, May 5th, 2020 by Helge

28405228503_dea2be1bc3_oBasing upon a survey, performed in 2017 and 2018, there are today 306.4 billion e-mails which are send and received per day (source: www.statista.com). This is an astonishing number which shows how important e-mails for private and  for professional purposes are. Via our Servage Hosting account, we provide a complete hosting solution for both enterprises and personal user. Of course, we implemented plenty for e-mail services for your to make sure have useful and necessary e-mail features.

To receive and send e-mails, you can administrate your e-mail accounts  via a mail client like e.g. Outlook or Thunderbird. You find the protocols to config your e-mail program in your Servage account or in our WIKI. As alternative, you can use our Webmailer which you find on https://webmail.servage.net/

Additional useful mail services are e.g Forwarder, Catch All and Auto Replies. In the following post, we like to explain these techniques and let you know how to set the services up. Of course, we provide even more mail services which are not covered in this blog and  which you can administrate via your Servage account. Please check the e-mail section in your Servage account related to that.  In case of questions, please get in touch with our 24/7 support.

 

Catch-All

Default account or known as catch-all is type of the email account which is used to receive all emails that are addressed to an incorrect or misspelled email address for a domain. Its the useful feature as we might miss the important emails if the sender types of our email address incorrectly at the of mail sent and this default email address will catch it and email will end into default email account.

Servage allows to set any name for the default email account instead of fixed category like other control panels, eg. incoming@domain.net. This default email account have advantage that it is like having unlimited aliases for the email addresses of your domain.

How it works :

Lets say someone sends you an email but mis-spelled your email address. Instead of maxmustermann@domain.net, the email was addressed to maxmustermann@domain.net. This time email wont bounce back and it will be cought by the default email account ie incoming@domain.net and can be accessed from there.

Steps to set default email account from servage panel :

  • Login into your servage panel
  • Click on the Default Account option available under the Email Tab
  • Choose exact site name for which you want to enable default account
  • Mention your default account name in the section “Default email address” and click on save.

 

Email forwards

Email forwarding refers to the operation of re-sending an email message delivered to one email address to one or more different email addresses.

The term forwarding has no specific technical meaning, but it implies that the email has been moved “forward” to a new destination.

Email forwarding allows you to forward email from an email address at your domain to another address.

For example, you could create an address email@yourdomain.com to forward mail to your current Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL, etc. address where you would actually pick it up.
How Email Forward Works:
Forwarding email addresses allow you to automatically direct incoming email messages to another email address. There is no inbox for a forwarding email address, and nothing is stored. It redirects any email messages sent to your forwarding email address to the other email address you specified.

You can create a new email forwarding address at your domain by following these steps:

  •  Login to your Servage Control Panel.
  • Click on Email forwards option available under the Email Tab.
  • Choose exact site name for which you want to add Email forwards.
  • Click on the “Add Forwarders” button.
  • In the “Email Address” field, enter in the name of the address you would like forwarded.
  • In the “Forward to/Destination” field enter in the destination email address you would like it forwarded to and click on Save.

 

AutoReply

AutoReply feature allows you to automatically send response messages in reply to incoming emails received on a specific email account. This is pretty useful when you are on holidays or unavailable, or if you have any generic messages to send:

  • login to the control panel
  • Email
  • Email accounts
  • Push the ‘EDIT’ option in front of email address
  • Enter the Subject of the mail and mail content, save the changes.Enter the Subject of the mail and mail content, save the changes.
