At Zipa Hosting, we recognize the importance of email as a primary method for business communication. Email is one of our core services, so we took every effort to extend the feature sets and consistency of the email service that comes with our web hosting. Over time, you will find us among the few web hosting providers who emphasize on email.
SpamExperts outgoing spam filter combats outbound spam proactively which improves IP reputation and prevents IP blacklisting. It ensures emails you send out are actually reaching the recipient's inbox and not being marked as spam.
SpamAssassin is an extremely versatile open source spam filter and the industry standard for filtering incoming emails. It combines several spam & virus fighting techniques and eliminates spam before reaching your inbox.
Email archiving lets you store a copy of all incoming, outgoing, or mailing list messages to and from all email addresses of your domains for a specified amount of time. You can download the messages or view them using webmail.
Email comes with powerful spam & virus protection, SSL/TLS encryption, email archiving (auto BCC), SPF, DKIM, DMARC, POP3, SMTP, IMAP, webmail, forwarder, piping, catch all, autoreply, mailing list and many more premium features.
Our email migration service works with almost any email system and mirrors your current emails, folders, calendars, contacts and reminders on our system, and giving end users a seamless email transfer experience.
We recognize the importance of email for your business. We are ready with our optional hosted email solutions when you need superior security, consistency, spam filtering and other communication resources.
We do not limit you using predefined mailbox sizes. When a predefined limit is set on mailbox storage, you cannot use the most of it, as some mailboxes only need 1 GB storage, while others need as much as 10 GB, or more.
This is why we allow you to customize mailbox sizes and set storage quotas for your mailboxes as you need. We do not limit you on how many mailboxes you can have, too. Create as many as you want!
Email archiving allows you to receive/store a copy of all incoming and outgoing email messages of all mailboxes of all your domains under a single global email archive. You can have copies of mailing list emails, choose which emails to store and specify the amount of duration you want to store the emails. The archived emails can be accessed and viewed using webmail or a mail client (e.g. outlook) via IMAP. You can even download the archived emails to you PC using your web hosting control panel or FTP.
The catch all or default email address receives emails sent to an invalid or non-existent email address and can redirect them to another mailbox or to a ‘pipe’. For example, if you have only two email addresses – firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com but someone sends an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, then your catch-all email will receive this email. If you do not have catch-all enabled, any email sent to an invalid address will get bounced.
The auto responder can automatically reply to emails you receive. You can set a custom message and attachment to be sent in the auto reply. You can use this to automatically reply with brochures to requests sent to email@example.com, or with forms for e-mails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also automatically send an ‘away message’ when you are not available or out of office.
A mailing list allows you to put multiple email addresses in a list and assign a single email address to send emails to everyone on the list. When you send an email to a list, everyone on that list will receive it. You can also set who can post to a list. This increases productivity, for example, if you frequently need to send emails to 20 emails, you can create a mailing list for those 20 emails and when you are sending emails to them, all you need to do is to type email@example.com in the ‘To’ field and hit send.
The email piping is a technique of sending email messages as an input to a program rather than appending the message to the mailbox file, allowing for real-time email delivery and handling. It is a vital feature for some real-time communication and collaboration applications. For example, you might have a support system to provide support to your clients. Your client sends an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and the support system imports emails from email@example.com every 30 minutes. If you have email piping enabled, the emails your clients are sending will be sent to the software instantly, without any delay.
SpamAssassin is an email utility that filters spam by examining incoming email and testing for spam characteristics. It uses a diverse range of tests including Bayesian spam filtering and network testing to identify and screen incoming email for unsolicited bulk email or spam. These tests examine email headers and content with advanced statistical methods and classify spam probability of an email message.
Calendar & contacts are integrated with our mail solution so that you can maintain all your contacts, events, schedules and appointments from one central place and access and synchronize it with your email client.
Email authentication is used to automatically detect the nature of incoming and outgoing emails. DKIM prevents phishing and allows your server to verify if incoming messages are unmodified and genuinely from the indicated sender. SPF is used to authorize servers and IP addresses to send mail from your domain(s). This feature prevents outgoing spam messages. Our servers use both SPF & DKIM to fight spam.
SSL/TLS is used to encrypt communication or connection between your email client (outlook, webmail etc.) and server to increase security. This also makes removes limitation for you from any ISP port blocking. We support both SSL & TLS encryption for SMTP, POP3, IMAP4 and Webmail.
SMTP, POP3, IMAP are connection protocols that a mail client (outlook, webmail etc.) uses when it connects to a mail server. We offer extremely fast SMTP, POP3 and feature rich IMAP implementation on a variety of ports with or without SSL/TLS encryption.
Webmail allows you to access your email from any device that has an internet connection through a web browser such as Firefox, Internet Explorer etc. We provide three different easy to use webmail applications – Horde, RoundCube and SquirrelMail for the end users and each administrator can decide which one they prefer. These brands are global leaders, most widely used and well known for easy to use interface.
This feature allows you to review details about email delivery attempts for your account. You can also trace an email's delivery route from your mail server to the remote address. This can be useful for locating problems with email delivery.
Forwarders allow you to send a copy of all mail from one email address to another. For example, if you have two different email accounts, firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, you could forward example.com to example1.com so that you do not need to check both accounts. With domain forwarders, you can forward all email traffic from one domain to another domain.
With filters, you can automatically perform predefined actions based on custom set criteria. You can forward an email, send a reply, delete or mark it as spam. With account level filtering you can perform an action on all email sent to all of your domain's email accounts. User level filter allows setting filters on a per email basis.

Usually, the port used for the outgoing mail server/SMTP service is 25. However, there might be a situation where your ISP might be blocking the use of port 25 for SMTP service. To circumvent this you can use an alternate port 587 for sending mails.
Yes, you can create mailing lists and add/delete users, select a moderator, restrict people from joining a list or even ban users from a list.
We take a zero tolerance stance against sending of unsolicited email, bulk emailing, and spam. Sending out newsletters, marketing emails, "Safe lists", purchased lists, and selling of lists will be treated as spam. Any user who sends out spam will have their account terminated with or without notice.
Just to clarify, you will not be suspended if emails you receive go to your spam folder. Only who sends such emails in bulk will be suspended.
Yes, you can. An auto responder is a program that, when setup for your email address, sends out an automatic, preset reply to an email, as soon as it is received at this email address.
