    Some of you may be aware that you can pick your e-mail up by using SquirrelMail (it's similar to NeoMail & Horde).

    We are interested in finding our which services you use to pick your mail up - and if any scripts aren't being used we will look to make that function defunct.

    Thanks for your time.


    P.S. - You can also pick your e-mail up at http://www.yourdomainname.com/webmail/

    always use my pop3 mails in outlook, 11 different mails on 6 differnet domains :O just alot easier to have them all on one screen


    i do have some clients on my system using neo / horde mail, so i'd be gratefull if you could keep these two, the squrrielmail can go for all i'm concerned, cos none of my people use it :D

    I just checked my email webmail and it was stuffed with spam

    9 pages 712 kb !!

    :( i dont think i had even used the addy anywhere so i cant understand how they got the address :confused:

    I dunno. I've NEVER given out my BY adderss, but all that gets is spam (and 99.9% of that is porn spam) :S
  5. Adam Administrator

    Yeah, tell me about it.

    The really (sort of) funny thing is that Spam Assassin is installed on our servers and should filter this kind of filth!

    Needless to say, we never reveal client information to anybody - nor we ever will.

    There is a particularly nasty spamming group illegally harvesting e-mail addresses from WHOIS information.

    Might as well slip a plug in now then: We have a free e-mail service that is similar to a popular 'warm e-mail provider' (can you guess what it is? :D) - it really does a good job of filtering spam.

    It's only free for our clients though, (so if you're reading this there is a good chance!) - the URL is http://www.zingmail.co.uk

    Enjoy :)

    /me wonders if he didn't check his BlueYonder mail for 6 months, would enough mail accrue to crash BlueYonder's mail server?
    /me thinks he'll try leaving it :D

    will we get hivemail as it looks really good
  9. Adam Administrator

    HiveMail is a really quality script.

    It costs $180 though, so we can't offer it to you guys as a script.

    If anybody is interested in purchasing a HiveMail script (which is what our e-mail site, www.zingmail.co.uk is powered by) send me a PM - we can more than likely come up with a decent price for you.

    Best wishes,

    I have only ever recieved one spam email. Just some tips never place your email on public places..if you do user at instead of @ and do other things which will trick the bots.
    +And for the orginal question. I mainly use outlook, which is very easy to config via cpanel. When I'm not @ home I always use webmail. I also configered my ericsson t68i to check my mails now. I'll tell others how if they want.
  12. Miguel New Member

    Yeah, I'm gonna have to kick my t68i into doing mail. :)
    I've never given by BY address out, yet all I get is spam, but since I don't use it :)
    I often spell everything out in my email, like something at somewhere dot co dot uk :)

    is there anyway you could put a webmail on paort 80 as 2095 is blocked at school
  14. Adam Administrator

    We won't change the port of webmail just because your school's proxy bans it!

    If you want to check your POP3 mail, you can use www.zingmail.co.uk - there is an option for you to download/read your webmail from any POP3 account.

    Port 2095 is used for a reason - it'd be ideal if every service ran on port 80, but this will never happen I'm afraid.

    lol good ol school proxy's

    it blocks everything i tried zingmail so i have set squirellmail on my mian account
  17. Adam Administrator

    I guarantee ZingMail would work.

    As it's a web service it runs on port 80 - even though it pulls from port 110 (e-mail).

  18. nick Account Disabled

    no zingmail doesent work because the new filter blocks everything and it blocks zingmail
  19. Adam Administrator


    That means you can't view any web pages then!

    Except for anything on your local intranet or in the administrators trusted sources.

    Anyway, haven't you broken up from school today?

    If so, happy holidays :D

  20. Jack HU Moderator

    wish i was still at school tbh, such a larf there :D
