Q5: How do I remove email from the server?

A: If email is stored on the server, it can take up space and eventually use up your server's disk space quota. To remove email from the server, follow the steps below:

  • Access your mail program, e.g. Outlook
  • Select the email account you want to modify
  • Find the settings for the outgoing server (for Outlook, 'More Settings button' > 'Advanced Settings tab')
  • Tick the box that says 'Remove from server' and select the number of days before it's deleted

If you prefer to keep email on the server, you can increase your quota by upgrading your hosting plan. Please contact us if you have any questions.



Q6: How do I access email online?

A: All hosting accounts come with 'webmail', which allows you to access your email from any device connected to the internet.

To access webmail, simply type /webmail at the end of your domain name. For example, if your domain name is www.mydomain.com.au, you'd type www.mydomain.com.au/webmail (if your website is linked to third party software, you may need to access webmail via https://vmres05.auserver.com.au/webmail).

You then need to enter your full email address and password to gain access.
