You can set up your email account in any email program (mail client) you'd like to. If you don't want to use a mail client, or if you don't have access to your regular device, you can access any Imaginet-hosted email account via our Webmail/Roundcube interface. For more info about using webmail, see Webmail.

Backing up your emails

Click here to read everything you need to know about email backups.

Email backups are very important. Creating and sticking to a good backup plan can benefit you in the following ways:

  • Reduced hosting expenses. By not storing all your old email on a mail server, you'll use far less disk space, thus reducing your hosting costs.
  • Compliance. The ECT and POPI Acts require that you secure your clients' information in a secure encrypted manner.
  • Disaster recovery. With a proper 3-2-1 backup strategy your emails will be safe from loss due to loadshedding, ransomware, accidents, PC failure, and unforeseen tragedies like fires or natural disasters.

With a combination of Imaginet's Hosting and Cloud Backup services, you can take care of all of these concerns at once.
