We offer a variety of email solutions to suit all needs whether personal, small business or large company. Choose from a number of plans offering simple POP3, IMAP and webmail accounts, or SMTP mail with domain level spam filtering and mail server backup services.
If you would like to use your domain name for email, but don’t require a full website, then our “Email only hosting” is the choice for you. The email only hosting provides you with 10 mailboxes and unlimited email addresses. Mailboxes can be accessed by Webmail from any browser, from your mobile phone, or from any email program on your PC/Mac. In addition to the email accounts, the email only hosting allows you to redirect your domain name to another URL or customise the parking page. You can upgrade to full web hosting at any later time if needed.
Email as part of our Hosting Service
As part of our hosting service you get a minimum of 25 mailboxes and unlimited email addresses at your domain name. Our Qmail accounts are compatible with all main email software programs such as Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Apple Mail etc. In addition if you are travelling or simply prefer to view your emails using an internet browser our Qmail offers the facility to do this and more.
With SMTP mail, you handle your own email service on your in-house server. The MX records (mail records) for your domain are simply pointed to the static IP of your server and your email is directed straight to the server. This means there is no need to log on to Irish Domain servers to collect your email, and similarly when sending, you can relay out directly from your server.
When using your own server for email, Irish Domains can provide you with a backup email server. This ensures that if your own server is offline for any reason, or if your internet connection fails, we simply collect your mail for you. When your server is back online, email is automatically forwarded back to you.
Irish Domain can also provide a professional spam filtering services at the domain level. This ensures that your server receives only a clean stream of legitimate mail rather than the usual spam & junk that causes so many problems today.
