Easy email hosting

Our flexible email hosting plans on specialised mail servers right here in Australia offer:

  • IMAP or POP plans
  • fast secure hosting
  • daily backups
  • all addresses supported by 4 mail servers: if one is overloaded or temporarily down, the others take over
  • send up to 2000 emails/hour per email address
  • 500MB - 50GB on-server storage per email address
  • your emails are securely encrypted while stored on the mail server AND in transit
  • mix and match service plans on a single domain: eg select IMAP for a main email address that several staff need to access, and save $ on other email addresses with smaller POP plans
  • instructions to set up your new email account, tailored for clients to use our preferred mail software Thunderbird
  • optional one-to-one support on request (fee applies).
  • POP3 or IMAP?

    POP and IMAP refer to different ways to manage email addresses.

    As a rough rule of thumb:

    • if you care that your emails aren't stored anywhere but on your own computer/phone: choose POP
    • for a shared business email account where several staff can send replies, using different computers: choose IMAP.

    Many email accounts have needs in between these extremes. Read our guide & think carefully before you choose. Everyone has their own priorities & constraints; what works for your friend might not be best for you.

  • Why Thunderbird?

    We've supplied email support for many years for all sorts of clients with many brands of email software. In our experience:

    • Thunderbird is consistently the easiest and most reliable mail software for clients of all levels of expertise to use, and
    • Thunderbird has caused the least problems of any mail software for us as support crew. That's less email downtime, less worry and less expense for you.

    Thunderbird is free open source software for Linux, Windows or Mac computers.

    You're free to use any other mail software of course. (Note that you might incur additional support fees, or we might be unable to supply full support.... contact your local computer shop in that case. We serve many clients, and we don't want others to miss out while we battle your software.)
