There have been issues reported when connecting to our Email service for IMAP from iPhones, iPads and iPods. It would appear that issues with IOS6 and IOS7 connecting to IMAP mail servers are widely reported and the fix is to recreate the connection. We're investigating this further but until something is found the steps to create a connection are detailed as follows:i

If you are using IMAP (which is the default) then please remove and recreate the email connection.

[Settings --> Mail, Contacts, Calendars]

[Select account >]

Delete Account 

[Add Account --> Other]

[Add Mail Account >]

Name: <your name>

Email: <your email address>

Password: <your mailbox password>

Description: <Description>

Next 

INCOMING MAIL SERVER 

Host Name: imap.pobox.co.uk

Username: <your email address>

Password: <your password>

OUTGOING MAIL SERVER 

Host Name: smtp.pobox.co.uk

Username: <your email address>

Password: <your password>

Next
 
(Your device should say checking and will present ticks against the items) 

Unselect Notes

Exit Settings and you should be good to go. 

Kind regards

Encrypted Email Connections from Mobile Phones PDF Print E-mail

A number of people have expressed concerns that Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod and Mac) and some other mobile devices complained about the security settings.

I have now uploaded configuration and certificates to our Mailbox and SMTP mail servers which enables this capability.

Please ensure you are using the following settings:

IMAP

Server address: imap.pobox.co.uk

Tick 'use SSL', select 'STARTTLS' or select 'SSL/TLS' dependent on the device you are using;

Please leave the default port if this is displayed. 

Please also use your email address and mailbox password for the login details.

SMTP

Server address: smtp.pobox.co.uk 

Tick 'use SSL', select 'STARTTLS' dependant on the device you are using; 

Please lave the default port if this is displayed.

Please also use your email address and mailbox password for the login details (or tick the box to achieve this if the option is give).

Note: for Apple devices unless you ask it will attempt to do this anyway; some other mail clients will require this.

Have fun

Mick

Spammers Attacking Mail Servers PDF Print E-mail

Spammers have been attacking our mail servers. They are using brute force attacks to discover customer email passwords allowing them to use our service to send spam email. The upshot being that we are blocked from sending email which effects all customers.

Please can you ensure that you remove any unused mailboxes; and that the passwords associated with the remaining ones are not obvious passwords. Examples of weak passwords are functional names like: staff or reception or peoples names.

We have deployed a number of countermeasures to protect the service; but by following the steps above you can help

Regards

POBOX Support 

** UPDATED 25/08/2014 **

Spam has been received via a customers account; measures have been taken to close down this avenue.
