If I order a POP Mailbox, what are my email settings?

You can use almost any email software such as Outlook to log into your Mailbox and download your messages. Here are the main settings:

  • Username: Your Username
  • Password: Your Password
  • POP (receiving) Mailserver: mail.yourdomain.com : Port 110
  • SMTP (sending) Mailserver: mail.yourdomain.com : Port 25 (if allowed by your ISP)
  •      OR
  • SMTP (sending) Mailserver: Your current ISP mailserver (if your ISP blocks Port 25)
  • Email Address: anything@yourdomain.com (You can choose anything before the @)
  • Display Name: (You can choose any name you wish)
  • Secure server (encrypted connection): No
  • Leave copy of messages on server: No

Unfortunately many ISP's don't allow their customers to send through outside mailservers such as ours. In this case, you should send through their SMTP (sending) Mailserver. Your ISP will be able to confirm the correct information for this setting. Emails will be received through our POP (receiving) Mailserver.

How do I renew my account?

Our Automatic Renewal Service automatically renews your MailingWeb account (including any upgrades) and charges the credit card on file for one additional year of service from the current expiry date. Auto-Renewal ensures that your email service enjoys continued uninterrupted operation without risk of cancellation. We will continue to bill your account on a yearly basis unless you cancel it beforehand.

One month prior to the Account Expiry Date, MailingWeb will charge the credit card we hold on file for your account. If the credit card is charged successfully, you will receive an email Invoice confirming payment. If the credit card is declined, you will receive an email Renewal Notice requesting payment. We will try to process your card 3 times before your account is cancelled. If your account expires and payment is not received during our "grace" period, it will be deleted. You should click here if you need to update the card held on file for your account.

Please note that we can't renew your domain name. You will need to contact your Domain Registrar to renew your domain.

How do I change my credit card?

If your account is nearing its renewal date and you want our Automatic Renewal System to use a different credit card, you can click here to update the card we hold on file for your account.

Back to Top


How do I cancel my account?

If you no longer need your MailingWeb account you should cancel it immediately. You can cancel your account at any time by submitting the form here.
After submitting the above form, our system will send you a Cancellation Confirmation Notice which can be used to verify that you have successfully cancelled your account.

Cancellation of Service requires 1 month prior written notice under the terms of our Service Agreement. Email and Upgrade Fees are non-refundable.

Please note we are unable to cancel Paypal Subscriptions so customers who have paid by this method will also need to cancel at Paypal.

Please note that your cancellation request must be received at least 1 month prior to your Account Expiry Date if you don't want to renew your account for another year. Once our Automatic Renewal Service renews your account, renewal fees are NOT REFUNDABLE because we will have already paid our upstream provider for your next year's service.

My email isn't working.

There can be many reasons why an email service isn't working, however some of the most common include:

  • Your domain name is newly registered. It can take up to 72 hours for the Internet to recognize new domains.
  • You must ask your Nameserver Administrator (this is often your Domain Registrar) to set up an MX (Mailserver) record for your domain pointing at your MailingWeb mailserver, usually mail.yourdomain.com. Alternatively, you can change the nameservers for your domain to:
    • PRIMARY HOSTNAME:  ns.mailingweb.com
    • PRIMARY IP ADDRESS:  65.60.63.2
    • SECONDARY HOSTNAME:  ns2.mailingweb.com
    • SECONDARY IP ADDRESS:  184.154.185.2
  • Your domain name has expired. Please note that we can't renew your domain name. You will need to contact your Domain Registrar to renew your domain.
  • Our service may be having technical problems. You can check the current status here.

Please contact our Customer Service Team if you need help.
