Email is a way of life…seriously, can you live without your email?
It is the way your small business communicates with clients, takes orders, sends newsletters, and submits invoicing. And, if it is not working, nothing can be more infuriating!

As a part of your hosting services with ClickHOST, you receive email services too. We offer Webmail email applications that enable you to check your e-mail accounts via your web browser. Using one of our Webmail applications, you can send and receive e-mail messages, create an address book, create a specialized signature line, and perform other common email tasks with the convenience of checking email from any computer or browser. We offer three webmail applications that you can choose from:
If you are looking for more email account features, you may want to use a Third-party email client. ClickHOST uses the IMAP and POP3 protocols to allow you access to your emails from our mail servers to your computer utilizing an email client such as Microsoft Outlook, Mac Mail, or Mozilla Thunderbird, etc. This includes Mobile email clients such as iPhone, Android, etc. These will require an initial configuration of the email client to access the emails from the server.
When setting up your email client it is important to understand the differences between using IMAP and POP3 protocols. The main difference is that IMAP always syncs with the mail server so that any changes you make in your email client will instantly appear on your webmail inbox. Even more helpful, updates will be in-sync between your email clients too (Microsoft Outlook, Thunderbird, and mobile devices)! With POP3, however, your email client and the mail server are not synced. Therefore, any changes you make to your email account in the email client will not appear in the webmail inbox or across your various devices. This is good to know if you decide to utilize your webmail randomly or on the fly.
Premium Spam Filtering
A close second to the infuriation of your email not working is getting Spam! With ClickHOST mail services, every hosting plan comes with extensive spam control software from SpamExperts. SpamExperts applies sensitive spam-filtering and spam pattern detection detaining spam from entering your inbox thus protecting your email service from junk email and email threats. Typically an add-on expense at other Hosting Providers, SpamExperts is FREE with your hosting plan at ClickHOST. We just think that email and spam-filtering go hand-in-hand, right?!
Google Business Apps, Microsoft Outlook 365
Ok, this is good, but your business uses Google Business Apps, Microsoft Outlook 365 or another Email Service Provider already. No worries! If you host your website at ClickHOST and want to keep your email at one of these Email Providers, your email will be relayed through their external servers using MX Entries. Don’t know what a MX entry is? No sweat, we can help you with that too. Just let us know…our Support Team is always happy to assist!
