Have questions about the free email resources included with your A2 Hosting account? We have your answers!
It's likely that you've been sending and receiving email for years. If not, this is a great place to learn all about email! Email is an abbreviation for electronic mail. Email are messages that are sent via an electronic device (generally a computer or mobile device) to another user's electronic device through a network. It offers a fast, affordable and easy way to communicate with users across the globe. Email is very easy-to-use, but there are some complicated tasks that happen behind the scenes to make it happen. While you don't need to know the ins and outs of the technology, we've outlined it below for you!
When you send your email, its first destination it to an outgoing mail server called Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). SMTP checks to see where the destination of the email message should be from the To, Cc (carbon copy) and Bcc (blind carbon copy). SMTP doesn't understand what a domain name is for an email address. That means the email address needs to be converted to an IP address that SMTP can understand. To do this, SMTP reaches out to a DNS server, which is essentially the internet's phone book. The email address ([email protected] for example) is converted to an IP address (something that looks similar to 12.345.67).
Once SMTP has all of the information necessary, the message is sent to the email recipient's Mail Transfer Agent (MTA) server. The MTA server determines whether the recipient is using a webmail solution, POP3 or IMAP to access their email. If the recipient is using webmail, the email remains there until the recipient logs into their software to retrieve the email. With the POP3 option, your email is downloaded from your server to your computer's email program (i.e Thunderbird, Microsoft Outlook, etc.). The email message is then deleted from the server. POP3 is a great way to save space on your server. With IMAP, your email remains stored on your email hosting account's server. This allows you to access your email even when moving between computers. You can also more easily recover your email whenever necessary.
Yes! Email is included for free with your Web Hosting account! You don't need two separate accounts. That means you get email addresses, SMTP, POP3, IMAP, webmail, spam protection and so much more for free included with your Web Hosting account! Best of all, your email is all managed within the easy-to-use cPanel control panel. You'll love how simple it is to create, edit and delete email accounts.

From speed to affordability to ease-of-use, there are a number of advantages to using email compared to other communication methods.
Your email can be accessed through free webmail software found in your web hosting control panel (Plesk or cPanel). We offer simple to use webmail solutions including Horde and RoundCube. Prefer to use your favorite email client? Great! Just follow our comprehensive IMAP and POP3 email setup instructions to get your email accounts set up and running fast!.
With POP3, your email is downloaded from your server to your computer. It is then deleted from the server. IMAP on the otherhand, allows you to access your email stored on your server from multiple computers. This allows you to access your email even when moving between computers. IMAP is generally the preferred option.
Your account comes loaded with the most popular email features (IMAP, POP3, SMTP, spam protection, filters and more) combined with our blazing fast and ultra-reliable servers backed by our 99.9% Uptime Commitment.

Along with all the other free resources included with your email account, we also offer SpamAssassin protection with your account. SpamAssassin is an automated solution that allows you to set a custom spam filtering score of 1-10. The higher you set this filtering score, the more strict your email spam filtering will be. You can also choose specific email addresses that you would like to block from sending to you.
You can also get advanced Barracuda Spam Filtering. When subscribing to Barracuda, each of your incoming emails will be evaluated before being delivered to you. If Barracuda determines that there's a high likelihood that an email is spam, If it's determined that an email is likely a spam message, Barracuda will prevent that email from being delivered. Each day, you will receive a list of all emails that weren't delivered. You can then determine whether or not you want to have that email sent. You can also whitelist specific email addresses so future emails are delivered to you without an issue.
Within your A2 Hosting cPanel account, you get direct access to your email messages with webmail solutions like Horde and RoundCube. However, you can also use an email client to access and send your emails. Email clients are software solutions you can use on your computer or mobile device to read, send and manage your email. You will just need to set up your email client using your account's SMTP and POP3 or IMAP settings. Some of the most popularly used email clients include:
