Email accounts for the highest volume of traffic on the
Internet. It can give you instant communication to anywhere in the world.
What is corporate email?
We are defining corporate email as any email using your own domain name
( ex: John@YourCompany.com ). As long as you have your own domain name registered, we can supply
you with email for it. Even if another provider is hosting your web site.
What are my options?
In order to explain your email options, let's define a few terms.
- Email Address
- Email addresses are of the form John@YourCompany.com. This is similar to a postal address in that
in order for someone to send you email they simply address it to your email address. There are
two parts to an email address. The part to the left of the @ symbol is the 'account'. The
part to the right of the @ symbol is the 'domain name'.
- Mail Box
- A place on a mail server where your email is stored until you retrieve it. Typically
each email address has a corresponding 'mail box' where email messages are stored until
you log onto the internet and retrieve them.
- Email addresses can also be set up to
automatically forward to a different email address.
- Email addresses can be set up so the email for more than one address all goes to one mail box.
This is called aliasing.
- Unlimited Aliasing
- This is a special form of aliasing. An email address can be set up so that all mail sent to
a domain will go to it. This is very popular for small businesses. If your domain name is
YourCompany.com, all email with the the YourCompany.com domain will automatically go to this
email address ( John@YourCompany.com, Sales@YourCompany.com, Info@YourCompany.com, etc. ).
There is a very useful exception to this. Any email address using your domain that
is specifically set up separately can have a separate mail box or forwarding address.
This allows you to give employees their own separate email addresses and still allow
you the flexibility of unlimited aliasing.
Our most popular product is sold as an add on to our web site hosting.
An email address using your domain with unlimited aliasing for an additional $10 per month.
If we are not hosting your web site,
the same service is $15 per month. Additional email addresses ( for your employees
for example ) are $5 per month with quantity discounts for quantities above three.
A list server is a special email account. Whenever someone sends email to this
'list server email address' the email goes out to everyone on it's list. If someone emails a
question, the question is emailed to everyone on the list. If one or more people on the list
responds to the question, the responses are emailed to everyone on the list. In effect you get
an electronic group discussion. The list can be manually
set up or you can set it up so people can subscribe and unsubscribe to it from your web site. Email
can also be monitored so you can control content.
This has many applications. It is widely used to create an information resource
and discussion forum for many technical topics or specialized areas of interest. It can also be used
to disseminate information and facilitate discussions among groups of people who may be geographically
Pricing for this service starts at $30 per month. Number of subscribers and volume
of email dictate the price.
