Managing Your Mail Messages
Since your mailbox has a size limit, you can't store your mail forever without eventually filling
up the storage space. Once your mailbox has reached capacity, any new mail will be rejected from
the sender and returned as an "Over Quota Mailbox". To correctly manage your mail, we suggest that
you always strip the mail after checking your mailbox.

Managing your Forwards
You can send your messages to up to 6 forwarding addresses. When entering a
forwarding address, you must enter the full e-mail address of the forward. From this window, you
can also delete a forwarding address that you no longer want. We do not guarantee the delivery to
any forwarding address. Delivery will depend on the validity of the forwarding e-mail address
and also the ISP of the address. We use Anti-Spam database lookups on all mail and some ISP's
may be on these lists. We have no control over these factors. You are allowed up to 6 forwarding
addresses under each mailbox.

You cannot check a forwarding or alias
mailbox from your mail client or Webmail. The mailbox must be set to store mail - not forward to
check the mailbox with a mail client such as Outlook or Eudora.

Setting Up Your Auto Responder
You can set up an Auto Responder for your mailboxes by clicking on the Responder Setup button.
This message will be sent to every e-mail address of the sender of every message you get for
that mailbox. This feature would normally only be used for an un-attended mailbox that you
wouldn't normally use for continuing mail correspondence during everyday business or
communication with friends or relatives.
Enter the message Subject then the Text of the message up to 255 characters. Do not enter any
HTLM tags - Text only.

Setting Up Your Alias Names
An alias name is just another name someone can use to send mail to a mailbox. email@example.com
may be the mailbox name, but you could also have johnsmith.
If using an alias, you must use the following rule: When entering an alias name, do not enter
the complete mailto address. An alias for firstname.lastname@example.org would be entered in the alias management
as "johnsmith" (or whatever your alias may be). Up to 6 aliases may be entered for any mailbox
name. When creating an alias name, do not use spaces.
john smith would be incorrect where johnsmith is correct.
All characters must be linked.
