What is HTTPMail and do you support it?
Posted by Phil (Netcetera) on 26 October 2012 11:36 AM

HTTPMail is a mail access protocol that allows you to access your mail from the server and leaves the email on the server. HTTPMail provides similar functionality to IMAP, where by an Outlook Express or Outlook client can access and manage messages and folders on the server. Unlike IMAP, it does not require SMTP to send messages. 

Another advantage that HTTPMail has over using POP and SMTP is that it can be configured to operate over Port 80, meaning that you can access your mail through corporate firewalls.

 

We support HTTPMail on our email hosting packages - http://www.netcetera.co.uk/hosting/e-mail/
