Email

One advantage of having your own domain is that you can have as many email addresses as you like and deliver these as you wish. You can take advantage of this even with our basic domain hosting service. Mail can be held on our servers or forwarded to existing mail accounts you may have elsewhere (the advantage of the latter is that you will not have to alter the mail server configuration in your email reader).

You can have up to 10 separate mailboxes (or 50 with advanced hosting). You can then have an unlimited amount of email addresses and say how they should be delivered. You can also reject mails to certain addresses or specify a 'catch-all'. You can even have multiple domains. We recommend the NetManager as a mail server.

An simple example domain configuration is:

Email addressAction
fred@domain.co.ukDelivered to domain-1 mailbox on our servers
joe@domain.co.ukAlso delivered to domain-1 mailbox on our servers
mary@domain.co.ukDelivered to domain-2 mailbox on our servers
sales@domain.co.ukDelivered to both domain-1 and domain-2 mailboxes on our servers
Catch-all
xxx@domain.co.uk
Rejected with message: No such email address

A more complicated example using two domains is:

Email addressAction
fred@domain.co.ukDelivered to domain-1 mailbox on our servers
fred@otherdomain.co.ukDelivered to domain-1 mailbox on our servers
joe@domain.co.ukAlso delivered to domain-1 mailbox on our servers
joe@otherdomain.co.ukAlso delivered to domain-2 mailbox on our servers
dave@domain.co.ukRejected with message: Dave's not here
mary@domain.co.ukDelivered to domain-3 mailbox on our servers
sales@domain.co.ukDelivered to both domain-1 and domain-2 mailboxes on our servers
lucy@domain.co.ukForwarded to lucy@isp.net
