How much space do I have for my e-mail accounts?

That's up to you, provided that your web files and e-mail all fit within your total disk space allocation as defined by your plan.

Is there a limit to the number of messages I can have in my mailbox?

No. The amount of e-mail you can store in your mailbox at any one time is determined by by the disk space available. The number of messages may vary in your e-mail accounts, as long as in total the amount of memory they occupy is within the disk space limit allocated by your plan.

Can I view attachments or HTML files with your web-based e-mail interface?

Yes. Our web-based e-mail interface is fully featured and allows access to all standard file types.

Can I have all my e-mail forward to a separate e-mail address?

Yes. With our easy-to-use control panel, you are free to set forwarders and autoresponders for your e-mail accounts and addresses as you see fit.

Can I get e-mail with my pointer domain name?

Yes, you can create unique e-mails for a domain name even though it points to another site.

When will my e-mail be functional?

Your account will be functional and ready to begin sending and receiving e-mail almost immediately after you sign up with us.

Does Hostito support mailing lists?

Yes, we use a robust mail list program called Mailman. This mail list program supports mailing lists, digest lists, web-based administration, and e-mail based administration. Easy to configure, you can use Mailman to keep in touch with your customers and send out newsletters, promotional offers, and more.

What e-mail software do your servers use?

We use Exim, a widely accepted alternative to sendmail, the standard but often buggy e-mail server program. Exim is smart enough to understand that many applications look for the sendmail program; it understands sendmail commands so your scripts can work like they do with sendmail.

What kind of e-mail virus protection do you offer?

Our e-mail software scans all e-mail for file types likely to contain viruses, such as .exe, .pif, etc. In addition, our control panel allows you to set various restrictions on e-mail that you receive, reducing the chance receiving a virus via e-mail from an unknown sender.

What kind of spam protection do you offer?

We have configurable spam blockers and filters, including SpamAssassin, so you can control and set the level of protection to meet your needs.
