How to use the system
After requesting your account be set up by a tech at EW3D, the following will help you understand the system.
Although it is not imperative, best use of the system is under IMAP protocol, which is rapidly becoming the standard for email setup. IMAP syncs your email from the server to any device you have set up. This means your email is identical, perhaps on your desktop, your laptop, your tablet, your phone and maybe on a home computer.
The system works with all popular email programs, such as Outlook, Thunderbird, Mac Mail and various smart phone email systems.
- Access to the webmail system is via: webmail.yourdomainname.com
- Within that interface, you may review your spam and have the option to whitelist (make certain good email comes through) and blacklist (make sure these never get through) easily by selecting an email and using the pull down at the bottom of the page.
- Folders can be created either on your computer or within the webmail interface and they will automatically display on all of your connections.
- When using IMAP, it is a good idea to limit the number of messages in your Inbox. This helps speed up the connection. If you don’t want to delete older emails, we suggest creating and Archives folder and moving the messages into that folder.
- Spam training is easy. Always move spam into the Spam folder. Always move good email from the Spam folder to the Inbox. The system will read these folders to tune itself to your particular habits. For instance, some people might want those ink jet cartridge emails, others… not.
