Welcome to our Email Services Page!
If your website is hosted with AWCS.net then email is a part of
your hosting package. At AWCS.net we offer POP3 Mail (Outlook type), Web Mail,
Web Based Email Administration and Mail forwarding.
POP3 and SMTP settings.
If you are using and email client such as Outlook or Outlook
express some of the settings you will be asked in setting them up is the POP3
and SMTP servers. When you have email accounts with AWCS.net your POP3 setting
will be mail.”insert your domain”.com for example mail.yourdomain.com. If you
have multiple domains pointed to the same website and you’re not sure, give us
call and we can tell you what your POP3 server is. Your SMTP server settings are
usually the same, for example mail.yourdomain.com. In some cases your ISP will
not allow you to send email through their servers for a different SMTP server.
You might find that you can receive email fine but you cannot send email using
our SMTP servers. In that case contact your ISP that you have your internet
connection from and tell them you need to know what their SMTP server settings
are. When asked for your “Account Name” or “Login” that is your email address
and password assigned to your email account. To see how and where these setting
are entered for Outlook and Outlook express please scroll down the page to see
instructions and screen shots of how to enter them. We understand that this can
be confusing to work through so feel free to contact us to help you . Many
people ask what do those initials POP3 and SMTP stand for. The answers will
surprise and hopefully amuse you. POP3 means, Plain Old Post Office Version 3.
SMTP means, Simple Mail Transport Protocol.
