Our SMTP servers allow you to send e-mail from Bear in mind that the SMTP server is using the POP-before-SMTP authentication method. What this means for you is that you will always have to log into the incoming mail server (POP3/IMAP) before being able to send through the outgoing mail server.

Each of our shared hosting packages comes with POP3 e-mail accounts in addition to e-mail forwards, aliases, and auto-responders. This means you can retrieve e-mail directly from mailboxes on the mail server using an e-mail program such as Eudora, Outlook, or Outlook Express.

Our IMAP server will permit your "client" e-mail program (e.g. Eudora, Outlook) to access remote messages stored as if they were local. For example, e-mail stored on an IMAP server can be accessed from a desktop computer at home, a workstation at the office, and a notebook computer while traveling, without the need to transfer messages or files back and forth between these computers.
