In September 2011, Comporium will upgrade our e-mail services for all Comporium.net e-mail accounts. In an effort to improve our services, the following new features will become available:
- A new and improved webmail will become available with the look and feel of Microsoft Outlook. Our new webmail will also integrate with several popular websites.
- All customers will be able to utilize IMAP in addition to POP & SMTP. IMAP is an e-mail protocol that allows customers to leave their e-mail on the mail server and sync it locally to their home computers & mobile devices. In the past, Comporium only provided the POP protocol. With this protocol, customers were required by default to download all e-mail messages to their computer. With the POP scenario, this could be challenging for a customer to maintain a complete record of all e-mail messages. The new IMAP functionality provides an efficient central point of e-mail access for a customer’s computers & mobile devices. To continue using POP and SMTP, as you are likely doing today, no change is required on your part.
- Comporium will be more than doubling our current e-mail quota from 110 MB to 250 MB.
- Our new webmail will have a business class calendar with functionality similar to Microsoft Outlook.
