Making the Best of All Those Mailboxes

Monday 8 November 2010


Today’s web hosting packages commonly provide a number of pop3 mailboxes as standard. “Pop” in this context stands for “Post Office Protocol”. The Post Office analogy is fitting, since your web mail server indeed acts as a kind of post office, waiting for you to retrieve it via an email client.

As the owner of a website domain (i.e. the unique name between “www” and “”), your pop3 email boxes give you a great opportunity: your email address can now mirror your site domain name. For example if your site is called, your personal email address could be

This becomes a way to link your online identity with your website, and also helps to keep your website in the public eye, with every email you send. By adopting your domain name as your email address you have gained a free and invaluable marketing tool.

The fact that you are offered multiple mailboxes as part of a web site hosting package is another plus. It means you can create different mailboxes for different purposes. For example, you could have different email addresses for customer services and support. For more personal use, you could reserve an email box specifically for your online purchases and assign it a suitable name: thus any spam generated by those purchases could be channelled automatically to that one address.

Should you choose website hosting from CWCS, we make sure to provide our customers with a brilliant mailbox service, offering a high number of email boxes – more than ample to get a small business up and running.
