We support both POP and IMAP
for incoming email and therefore we support any email
client that recognizes these protocols. If you're
unfamiliar with what the difference is between POP and
IMAP, then please look at the next subsection where
we'll explain this. Some of the more popular email
clients we support are Outlook,
Outlook Express, Windows Mail
(Vista), Thunderbird, Mac Mail,
Entourage and Eudora.
The difference between POP
The difference between POP
and IMAP is where your emails and mail folders are
stored. With POP3, you essentially download your emails
from our servers, take them off our server and then put
them into your own local mail folders on your computer.
They are not left on WizMailer. With IMAP, your emails
and mail folders are kept on our servers, so when you
access your email account via IMAP, you'll be looking at
your emails remotely.
The advantage with POP3 is
that you don't have to be online to check your emails.
Some businesses would also rather keep their data on
their local computers, so POP3 is a better option. With
IMAP, your emails are stored on our servers and
therefore allow you to easily access your emails from
any Internet connection worldwide. Your emails will also
be backed up regularly and be stored on high-quality
servers, making it reliable and efficient. The downside
to IMAP is that you will need more diskspace with us
(although 1GB will in most cases be ample) than with
POP3 and you'll always need to be connected to the
Internet to retreieve any of your emails.
Our webmail client is
one of our slickest features. You'll find it very easy
to use because we've based it around how email clients
work. It's the perfect companion to keep up to date with
all of your important communication data. Below are
several screenshots of our webmail client.
One of the other useful
features of our webmail client is AJAX technology. This
essentially allows parts of a page to be refreshed
without having to reload the whole page again. The
result is a large increase in speed and when combined
with a few other technologies, we can offer
functionality like drag 'n drop and right click menus.
Minimize spam and viruses
business is email and that's important because
it means we have the resources to put into fighting spam
and viruses. Our spam settings are very customizable,
with various options include:
Control what happens to
spam of different likelihood. For example, delete
anything automatically that is marked as "Very
likely to be spam", but place anything that is "Hard
to tell" in my spam folder.
virus infected emails.
Control your own
blacklists and whitelists.
Response where unknown senders are asked to verify
that they are a real person.
of people on your address books.
on the go is important for keeping in touch and
WizMailer has you covered in a variety of ways:
For those people with
IMAP access on their phones, then checking your
e-mail is very simple.
For those who support
POP3, you can opt to leave a copy of e-mails on the
server so that you can retrieve them from your
normal working computer when you're back on it, but
still see your e-mails when on your mobile.
If you only have been
issued an e-mail address from your cell phone
provider (such as with older Blackberry's), then you
can create a mail rule in WizMailer to forward
copies of new messages on to your mobile device.
WizMailer also supports
the SyncML protocol (sync.WizMailer.com) and
therefore can sync your calendars, contacts, tasks,
notes and journal between your WizMailer account and
mobile device. We also have sync software available
for Blackberry users.
WizMailer finally has a
mobile webmail interface. While this interface is still
being developed, it can be useful for those who would
prefer to use a browser from their phone.
Desktop Notification Client
The WizMailer desktop notification client is the best
way to receive alerts delivered to your desktop when new
mail arrives in one of your folders. This utility not
only alerts you of new email but also alerts for
appointments, task events, and other alerts sent from
users in your group or on your friends list.
During setup of this utility you can choose from one, a
few, or all of your email folders in which you wish to
be notified of new email. Additional features will be
Up to 50MBs in attachment
size (including any encryption).
Receive your existing e-mail
Most people these days have
more than one email mailbox. With WizMailer, you can
consolidate them all into one account. It's easy to
setup too. Just enter the various details of the server
that you are pulling from and we'll then check for new
e-mails to those accounts and deliver them to your
WizMailer mailbox. You can then reply to these e-mails
as if you were sending from that email account by using
our Web Identities utility.
We can also pull from some
common email sources, including Hotmail, AOL, Earthlink,
Mindspring, Juno and virtually any POP3 or IMAP server.
Saved Search Folders
search folders enable you to create custom mail folders
whose contents contain the results of a pre-configured
search that is updated constantly.
In this example, there are
three search folders. One shows all flagged mail, one
shows all unread mail, and one shows all mail within the
These folders make it easy
to find mail that is important to you. Any IMAP enabled
email client can view these search folders as they
appear to be just another IMAP folder. This feature is
unique to WizMailer because of our superior IMAP
