Alternate Mail Server

POP (the older Post Office Protocol) mail is provided by server mailhost.powersrvcs.com. These are the parameters to use for your email client. Encrypted connections to the server are not supported.

Incoming host name: mailhost.powersrvcs.com

Outgoing Host name: mailhost.powersrvcs.com

POP port: 110

Outgoing SMTP port: 587

Connection Security:None

Authentication: Encrypted password

Account Name: name%domain@mailhost.powersrvcs.com

i.e. webmaster%domain.com@mailhost.powersrvcs.com

The email client interface may break that string up into two pieces. The user name for the server would be webmaster%domain.com and the server itself would be mailhost.powersrvcs.com.

Web Mail

A web mail interface is available.  Any web browser that supports current secure web site connections can use the webmail interface. This webmail interface is for use with mail.i-it.co.uk server IMAP email accounts. Webmail can be used independently from a PC or smartphone or iPad based email client application using the IMAP protocol. Multiple devices using IMAP can access the same email account. Mail is stored on the server until it is deleted. Please delete old emails if they are no longer required.

The URL is:

https://mail.i-it.co.uk/mail/

Login to webmail with your email account and password:

Email Client information

Our company supports more than one type of Email software platform.  Our newest platform was upgraded to improve it’s security and spam prevention. This particular server was previously identified as either of two hostnames —  mail.intercape.com or  mail.i-it.co.uk.  Unfortunately, to accomplish the security improvements, the hostname must now be specified as only mail.i-it.co.uk and plain text password logins are no longer allowed.  In general, if the email client settings are changed to allow TLS or SSL, and password authentication is selected, all other parameters should stay the same if the email account was working prior to the server upgrade.  The mail server supports both POP and IMAP protocols.  Below are some screen shots showing typical settings for some email clients.
