How to use your new web mail account.

Following recent infrastructure improvement, our technical department has transferred former domain names, hosting and mail services, which were on the old server 'justdomainsuk.com', over to our new advanced server on the 'vikatec.net'. 
This has added an additional level of security, optimise server performance and improved the process of getting a Web page onto a computer screen. The transfer will also provide faster communication and improved email and Web Mail services to ensure and increased performance and stability throughout. 

If your Domain name supports an independent websites hosted on your webspace with us, your site would have been transferred over to the new server automatically on the switchover date. 
We kindly ask you to test your website and your new mail setting below as soon as possible. 

Full email and Web Mail Service will be available during the switchover period only; thus your current mail services will continue to be available and working for a period of 21days. During this period we ask customers to re-set their mail accounts as illustrated below. Failing to re-set, your current mail accounts on 'justdomainsuk.com' will be closed down once the 21 day period has lapsed. 

Important information: If you are a Web mail client that stores your messages on line; please note, following the 21 day transition period any mail left in your old email account will be deleted when the account is closed. We subsequently advise you to ‘migrate’ the mail that you wish to keep into your new Web mail account ASAP using the ‘FORWARD’ facility, or download them into a suitable program on your computer for later use.

Our apologies in advance for any inconvenience caused.

From the Tools menu, click Accounts > Mail > Highlight the account you wish to edit > then click Properties.

   

   

Click the Servers tab, and, in the “Incoming mail (POP3)”: field, change type to: POP.vikatec.net

This information can usually be found on your ISP's web site or by contacting their support department. If your Internet access provider does not have an SMTP mail server for you to use, you can send mail through our SMTP server shown above provided your mail client supports SMTP authentication, authenticate with your mailbox username and password.
