One of the highlights of the Internet experience is electronic mail.
Email can send a message to a person nearly instantaneously anywhere in the world.
This flagship of electronic communication is popular because it is free and outruns conventional "snail mail".
- Visit webmail.iocc.com or mail.iocc.com from any computer on the Internet
- Check your IOCC.COM e-mail using a web browser, whether you are at home, at work, at a friend's house, or on vacation.
Setup an E-Mail Client
- Learn the most popular ways to retrieve IOCC.com e-mail
- Here is the information needed to setup most e-mail clients:
- Incoming Mail Server (POP3 or IMAP):
- Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP):
mail.iocc.com Port: 26
- Account Name: Your IOCC.com Email Address
- Password: Your IOCC.com Password
- Do NOT check options such as "Logon using Secure Password Authentication"!
- Outgoing Server "My Server Requires Authentication" ("Use same settings as my incoming mail server") should be checked.
It is always required.
- Dial-up customers should remember that it takes about 3-10 minutes per Megabyte to download e-mail.
Some people send e-mail attachments up to 5 Megabytes in size. This slowness can cause some mail clients
to abort the download of messages, resulting in "Mailbox is locked by POP server" prompts. If this happens, close all
your e-mail clients (preferably reboot your computer) and wait 30 minutes before trying e-mail again.
That allows our servers to clear the session, per Internet Standards. Ask the sender to reduce the size of
- Once setup and working, if you receive a login prompt or a message that your mailbox is locked, there are
procedures you should follow.
SPAM and Virus Filter for E-Mail
- Unfortunately, e-mail is not shielded from marketing departments and wrong-doers of the world.
SPAM (unsolicited commercial e-mail), viruses, trojans, spyware and other malware (malicious software)
can do bad things to your computer and are a tremendous problem for all Internet users.
- Be sure to use general anti-virus and anti-spyware filters on your computer to protect from intrusions coming through
your web browser or other forms of internet communication.
- How does someone get my e-mail address?
- First, it's easy to write a program that creates every possible e-mail address, especially from common words.
For example, johna, johnb, johnc, . . . johnz. These are called "dictionary attacks" and are usually
stopped by SPAM filters such as Postini shortly after the attacks begin.
- It's also easy to harvest addresses
from the internet.
IOCC.com E-Mail Policies
- Store up to 250 Megabytes (10MB) of E-mail on our server.
- If your mail on our server exceeds 250MB, new incoming mail messages are rejected.
- Inbox e-mail left on our servers is deleted automatically after 60 days.
- To preserve messages, check your e-mail and download them to your computer using the POP3 protocol
(Outlook, Outlook Express, Netscape, etc.)
Use WebMail and move the messages into a folder other than the INBOX.
- Using IMAP instead of POP3 leaves e-mail on IOCC.com's servers (and the 250MB storage rule applies)
unless you move the messages into a folder on your computer.
- Maximum incoming message size is 5Megabytes (5,000,000 bytes). Larger messages are rejected by our server.
Ask the sender to reduce the size of large images, to reduce the number of images attached to the message,
or to send a URL for the images instead of the actual images.
- Outgoing messages can be of any size. However, any outgoing messages larger than 5MB (5,000,000 bytes)
not immediately accepted by the destination server are deleted without notice from our server in order to
prevent e-mail outages caused by bouncing messages.
