How do I set up the exemail email accounts?
Follow the simple steps given in the Member Facilities area to set up the exemail email accounts in a third party email program and Exetel server.
1. Go to Member Facilities area
2. Click on Premium VAS option and the email .
3. Select Add Email Account tab.
4. Read the instructions carefully and enter the "Email address" and "password" in the "Add New Email" section and click on "Add" button
5. These steps include the set up of your computer’s email client and these email addresses can be used once you have created them.
- These Email accounts are POP3/SMTP and Exetel does not provide IMAP.
- The capacity of each mail box set up by the user is 40 megabytes of storage and the maximum email size that can be sent or received is currently 25 megabytes. Always ensure that you have enough capacity to receive emails.
- the maximum attachment size is approximately 12 megabytes.
- Exetel email service is NOT a suitable method for either permanently storing email messages or for sending large files (which is why almost all email servers have limits lower than the 25 megabytes currently in operation at Exetel) and if someone sends you a large email it may be 'bounced' if there is no enough space in your mail box. If you need to exchange large files with others please use FTP (which was specifically designed for this purpose).
- Not surprisingly there are a significant and growing number of email accounts that have been set up and either not used at all or used and then abandoned although they often continue to 'collect' SPAM.
- If you want to keep records for long periods of time you will need to download your emails from the Exetel servers to your PC. Exetel maintains a 'house keeping' process that is running at the end of each month and performs the following functions:
- Deletes all accounts that have not been used for more than six months.
- Deletes any individual email message on the server that is more than three months old.
