2. How do i setup my email client?

Use the information bellow and follow the instruction of your email client to check your mail from your computer.

Incoming (POP/IMAP) Server: mail.yourdomainname.com

Outgoing (SMTP) server: mail.yourdomainname.com

SMTP Port: 2525

Username/Account Name: username@yourdomain.com
Password: email account password

For outgoing mailserver you must enable 'Athentication' or you will get an error when sending.

If your ISP has blocked SMTP server access, try using port 2525 instead of port 25 which is the default. Your account will also support IMAP.
3. How do i access my email from the web?

To check your webmail go to http://webmail.bananahosting.com and login using your email account details.

You may also use this site: http://mail.yourdomain.com

And as backup there is another webmail here:


4. What are Autoresponders?

An autoresponder will send a standard response e-mail message to anyone who sends an e-mail to a specific e-mail address at your domain. Each of our hosting plans allow you to set up a specific number of autoresponders for free.
5. What are aliases?

Aliases are different names for the same mailbox:
For example: You can use e-mail addresses like sales@yourbusiness.com, info@yourbusiness.com, and tech@yourbusiness.com which will all point to one mailbox
6. How much email space do i get?

You either receive 1000mb, 300mb or 100mb depending on your plan, however this is shared with your webspace and databases.

Mail servers are NOT backed up and most email is kept on the server for 1-3 months and then deleted to save space. Please download your email regularly to your pc.

7. What is Spam Assassin?

Spam detection software is installed on all email servers but disabled on new accounts by default. Once enabled, you can set the sensitivity level at which emails will be regarded as spam and either deleting or adding [Spam] to the subject line. Filtering rules can also be applied at the server. Spam Assassin is a very powerful anti-spam tool and is highly recommended.

Simply go to http://mail.yourdomain.com/spamassassin and login with your email account details.

Recommended Points level: 4-4.5.
NetWorks Test: Enable all three

8. Do you offer an Anti-Virus?

Yes, ClamAV is installed on all mail servers and is updated daily. Any emails containing viruses are deleted before they reach your mail box.
9. Do you offer or support any mailing lists?

Yes, the every account comes configured with the "EZMLM/IDX MAILING LIST MANAGER".

For more info on how to use this click here:


10. I cannot send emails but i can receive.

This means your ISP or Firewall is blocking the connection.

In your Email program set the outgoing server port to 2525 (not just 25).

Then check that 'Athentication' is enabled.

Do not enable SSL SMTP, we do not support that.

11. How long is email kept on the server?

Due to the large volume of data that passes through mail servers, they are NOT backed up and most mail is kept on the server for 1-3 months, depending on available disk space. Please download your email regularly to your pc to prevent loss of emails.
