Information on pop.co.za
Dear POP.CO.ZA user,|
Posix has moved POP.CO.ZA from its own machine and put it onto the Posix Virtual Server - VWEB.CO.ZA.
This is to make way for our new Dell Blade server - lots more power, speed and disk. This will though take a few weeks to properly configure. The biggest advantage though will be a hugh increase in available disk space which will allow users to have e-mail boxes much larger than today and to also use the IMAP protocol for downloading your e-mail. But for now...
In order to read your e-mail online - please in future go to webmail.vweb.co.za. Please use this name so that the SSL Security certificate name matches. For Normal e-mail (that you download onto a PC) - please change the following settings on your machine.
POP3 ConfigurationTo configuration this in your e-mail client, you need:-
Most people will be using a POP3 connection and running on Port 110. SSL/TLS (security) support is NOW AVAILABLE. You can instead tick that box and connect on port 995. The server for e-mail purposes only has one SSL/TLS and the certificate uses the name mail.vweb.co.za which is why you must use that name if you are using SSL/TLS.
Mail may be left on the Server if you POP (read your) e-mail from more than one device, e.g. Laptop, Tablet and Cell Phone, but we recommend that you keep this to a minimum like 7 or 14 days. This setting is under Advanced or Extra settings.
OutBound E-Mail Guidelines:Traditionally, users will use the Mail Server of the ISP who they are connected to.
Some common examples of these are:-
This is fine if your PC is used in one location and thus always
connected to the same network provider, otherwise you'll be changing
the settings everytime you move to a different Internet
SMTP Mail Submission settingsYou will find these under Advanced or Extra settings.
Typical settings are:
Security considerationsBy using the Sumbission settings (relay.vweb.co.za) and using SSL/TLS for Fetching e-mail, all e-mail traffic between yourself and Posix will always be encrypted and your username/e-mail address and password hidden from the world. In addition, Posix also uses a technology called DANE so that emails between our server and other servers around the world always uses encryption when offered - again - keeping your e-mail as private as possible.
