Our email services are advanced, reliable and secure. They include support for SMTP, IMAP, POP and Web Access protocols. You can protect yourself from eavesdropping and security risks by using SSL encryption (See SSL Encryption)

Secure authentication (When sending and receiving emails) is enforced to secure servers, track spammers and  deny unauthorised relaying of messages. Simple put, authentication provides a mechanism for tracking problems and holding our account holders responsible for spamming and other activities that may have a negative effect on our services and customers which may eventually lead to blacklisting and other problems. We do not tolerate spamming and appreciate anybody that may wish to notify or make us aware of any such activities..

Virus & spyware scanning and removal and anti Spam are just some of the features you will find helpfull. Impulse Computer Services' servers feature very reliable tracking of email though advanced logging systems should customers experience delivery issues which cannot be explained without investigating server logs.

Technical Information (About our servers)

  • Multi Protocol Support (POP, IMAP, SMTP, WebMail and DNS)

    Our email server(s) support the following email protocols:

    • POP - Post Office Protocol (POP)

      POP is an application-layer Internet standard protocol used by local e-mail clients to retrieve e-mail from a remote server over a TCP/IP connection. POP and IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) are the two most prevalent Internet standard protocols for e-mail retrieval.

    • SMTP - Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP)

      SMTP is an Internet standard for electronic mail (e-mail) transmission across Internet Protocol (IP) networks. While electronic mail servers and other mail transfer agents use SMTP to send and receive mail messages, user-level client mail applications typically only use SMTP for sending messages to a mail server for relaying.

    • IMAP - Internet Message Access Protocol

      Internet Message Access Protocol (commonly known as IMAP, and previously called Internet Mail Access Protocol, Interactive Mail Access Protocol, and Interim Mail Access Protocol) IMAP is an application layer Internet protocol operating on port 143 that allows an e-mail client to access e-mail on a remote mail server.
      The idea is pretty much the same as Webmail without the burden of html interface. IMAP supports both on-line and off-line modes of operation. E-mail clients using IMAP generally leave messages on the server until the user explicitly deletes them. This and other facets of IMAP operation allow multiple clients to access the same mailbox.

    • Webmail (WorldClient)

      Webmail (or Web-based e-mail) is an e-mail service intended to be primarily accessed via a web browser, as opposed to through a desktop e-mail client (such as Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla's Thunderbird, or Apple Inc.'s Mail).

      A major advantage of webmail over application-based e-mail is that a user has the ability to access their inbox from any Internet-connected computer around the world. However, the need for Internet access is also a drawback, in that one cannot access old messages when not connected to the Internet.

  • Browser & Email Client Support

    The aim of this list is to give customers an indication of what works and works best with our services.  Web browsers and other software keep developing at an amazing pace and it is important that clients know what works and how well.

     NB: If your software is not listed, it does not mean or suggest it is not supported. Please contact us if your software is not listed but vital in day to day operations and we will establish if and how this is possible.

  • SSL Encryption

    Besides using standard e-mail protocols, Impulse Computer Services also supports and recomends the use of encrypted encryped e-mail. To achieve this Impulse Computer Services implemented SSL encryption on POP, SMTP, IMAP and HTTP (WebMail).

    Transport Layer Security (TLS) and its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), are cryptographic protocols that provide security and data integrity for communications over networks such as the Internet. TLS and SSL encrypt the segments of network connections at the Transport Layer end-to-end.

    Encryption is generally used by insitutions (i.e. banks, credit card companies) requiring security and privacy. Encryption protocols are designed to prevent eavesdropping, tampering and message forgery. NamiHub has fully implemented SSL encryption methods to ensure that our customer's email services, passwords and data remain fully confidential when used from insecure locations such as internet cafes, airports etc.

    Cryptology protocols will not work with transparent proxy servers (Due to end-end encryption) which ensures that internet backbone and service providers cannot breach our clients' privacy using transparent proxy servers and similar technologies. To ensure privacy, clients should always ensure that their browser indicates that their connection is encrypted which is usually indicated with a lock. It should also be noted that while our services are secure, those of other service providers are not.
