CityScope Net provides e-mail services to our hosting and mailbox only accounts. While most clients will pull their email from the server directly from their pc or cell phone, it is sometimes useful to access your mail through our web mail interface, such as when traveling.
We suggest clients use an email software client such as: Microsoft Outlook 2007 or higher or Mozilla Thunderbird that uses POP3 on a regular basis so you download the email to your pc. For cell phones, tablets and travelling laptops, we suggest setting up IMAP instead of POP3.
** We make daily backups of our systems, but we are not responsible for any email left on our servers or lost in transit or from any system failure that may happen whether on our servers or from our network providers. You also understand that email is not a secure form of communication. Please do not send or store passwords, credit card information or any sensitive identity information in your email.
E-mail Spam & Virus Protection
The Barracuda ESS quarantines spam and viruses before they reach your pc, laptop or cell phone. The system will send daily notifications of spam held in the quarantine area and you can deliver or whitelist any email that was held automatically without logging into the system, saving you time. Some spam & viruses may go through the system. So it is important to have an anti-malware software on your pc and devices for your protection. (You still need protection for browsing the Internet, downloads and firewall blocking.)
In Barracuda ESS, you have the ability to see ALL your inbound email; quarantined, blocked or delivered.
You can Show Details of why emails were held, see the Show Details link below:
You can setup exempt and blocked users and change when you receive quarantine notifications anytime of the day and week or not at all. You can find Barracuda documentation on our Web Mail Support Page.
CityScope Net provides a service of creating and maintaining your E-mail Newsletters and email contacts. We use either Constant Contact or MailChimp for our clients. The client pays the email provider (Constant Contact or MailChimp if it applies, they do have free accounts.). We charge only for our services of creation and maintenance.
We have two options:
- an hourly rate
- a fixed amount per newsletter
