Summary

Web Hosting Manage Email Accounts

 

This article will walk you through the process of using Mail Manager.  Mail Manager is a simple and convenient email management tool. With Mail Manager you can create, configure various domain email accounts and email account features.  You can access Mail Manager by following the below steps.

 

  1. Login to the EarthLink Hosting Control Center at: https://control.earthlink.net/.
  2. Enter the Username and Password for the Control Center. For existing customers, your Username is either your domain name or email address associated with your account. For new customers, it is your email address mentioned in your welcome email.



  3. Click on Advanced Tools under Quick Access.



  4. Click on the Email at the top.



  5. Click on Mail Manager.


 

 Main page: This will allow you to list all the email accounts and also provides options to search and modify your accounts.

 

 

    • Click on Global Email Settings. 
    • Global Email Settings: This will allow you to list and create the catchall email addresses and also to enable email virus scanning. Below screen shot will show you both catchall and virus scanning page. 

      • Catch-all: This function allows you to redirect improperly addressed email sent to your domain to a catch-all email address. We define an improperly addressed email as an email message sent to your domain to an undefined email account.

       

      TO ENABLE CATCHALL

          1. Select a domain from the drop down menu.
          2. Enter an existing email address.
          3. Click on Save. 

      Note: You can only set one catch-all email address per domain. The existing email address that you set as your catch-all can be either an external address (e.g. a Hotmail account) or one of your domain's email regular accounts.

       

      TO DISABLE CATCHALL


      Select the email address and click on Remove.

       

      • Virus Scanning: Email virus scanning protects your computer from computer viruses which can be transmitted by email attachments. Some of these viruses are designed specifically to spread by email, while others are accidentally spread when an unsuspecting user sends a legitimate file via email which has been infected with a virus. To help protect your computer from these viruses using Mail Manager you have to activate virus scanning

       

      TO ENABLE VIRUS SCANNING: 

      1. Select domain from the drop down menu.
      2. Click On and then Close.

      TO DISABLE VIRUS SCANNING: 

      1. Click Off and then Close.

    • Click on Mail Aliases.


      Manage Aliases: This will give you the list of available alias accounts. You can create an alias account here, or delete the existing one and will allow you to change settings for an existing alias account. An alias account is an email address that does not have a physical mailbox or email storage space. Alias accounts must be forwarded to an existing email account with a mailbox and storage space. An alias email address acts as a “front” giving the appearance of unique email account when in actuality it is only an alternative email address to traffic emails through.

      Note: Auto responders do not work with forwarded email and alias accounts.

       

        • Viewing List of Alias Accounts: Below screen will help you to view all the existing alias accounts created.

        3. Click on Spam Filter: This will allow you to change the spam settings for the email account. Once enabled you will have different options to select from.



          a) Filter Type – allows you to change filter type.

          Delete Spam – email which the filter classifies as spam will be deleted automatically. Email which is deleted in this manner is unrecoverable.

          Note: There is always a risk that the spam filter may classify legitimate email as spam. We do not recommend enabling the automatic deletion of spam due to this possibility.

          Deliver Spam - Email which the spam filter classifies as spam will have “**SPAM**” added to the subject heading of incoming email. The tagged email is delivered along with regular email. This setting is useful if you would like to scan through the email classified as spam by the filter. You can set up an email rule which will place email with **SPAM** as part of the subject line into a different mail folder on your computer. Most email clients, such as Microsoft Outlook or Webmail, support email sorting.

          Quarantine – email which the spam filter classifies as spam will be held back by the mail server and placed in a quarantine folder. This folder is called SPAM incoming. Email which is placed in the quarantine filter will not be delivered with your regular email. To review these emails you will need to visit the corresponding folder. Email in your quarantine folder can be viewed by any email client that maintains an IMAP connection with your email server.

          b) Filter Level – allows you to change the filter level.

          Light – light mode filtering uses a higher point total to classify spam, and therefore is less capable of detecting and filtering out spam, however if you have set your spam to be deleted automatically, you may want to use the lighter filtering mode to ensure that regular email classified as spam is not deleted.

          Standard – standard indicates a custom level of spam filtering is turned on and email will be filtered to remove email from unfamiliar email addresses.

          Aggressive – aggressive mode filtering will filter all email that is not in your contact or “safe” list as junk mail.

          Note: There is always a risk that the spam filter may classify legitimate email as spam. You may not want to enable the automatic deletion of spam if you are concerned about this possibility. It is recommended you frequently review your spam, trash and or junk folders to ensure a legitimate email has not been classified as spam. It is also recommended that you add email addresses to your Contact lists to ensure your email account receives all emails from the specified sender.

          c) Whitelist – allows you to add email addresses to a Safe list.

          Note: Enter email address and click Add New Whitelisted Address.

          d) Blacklist – allows you to add email addresses to the black list.


        4. Away Message: The Away Message function allows you to automatically reply to incoming email with a pre-written message. This function can be enabled to auto respond to all or specific email addresses sent to your email account.



          Note: Away Messages do not work for forwarded and alias accounts.

          Message Name - enter a message name.

          Respond only if – select the away message condition.
