Email Services

POP3 Server

A system that receives a user’s email messages and stores them in the user’s mailbox. When a user’s email client checks for new email, it communicates with the POP3 server, which ensures proper user authentication and delivery of email to the user’s email client. POP3 is the most commonly used email delivery protocol.

POP3/SSL Support

This is the secure POP3 server. The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a commonly-used protocol for managing the security of a message transmission on the Internet.

Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) Server

An advanced system that is similar to POP3. Because IMAP is relatively new, not all email clients support it. IMAP offers superior user authentication and allows users to store their email on a server instead of downloading messages to a workstation (as is the case with POP3). This enables users to check their email from various workstations and lets them see a complete list of the emails kept in their folders.

SMTP Server

An email delivery system. When you send an email, the SMTP server takes this message from the email client and delivers the message to the recipient’s POP3 server. If the ISP forces you to use a specific SMTP server, Lotus Foundations can deliver to that server rather than directly to the destination servers. This is known as a ‘smarthost’.

Virus Scan

Scans all outgoing and incoming email for viruses. If a virus is found, it is immediately removed from the email. A warning is then sent to the sender and all recipients along with the original, but virus-free, message. You must buy the Lotus Foundations AntiVirus license for Lotus Foundations for this feature to be enabled.

Spam Scan

Scans all incoming email for possible spam. If spam is detected, it categorizes the email as either probable or definite spam and enables you to choose what to do with the email including marking it, moving it to a spam folder, or deleting it.

RBL

Sets the level of real-time blacklist (RBL) spam protection that the server uses. “No RBL” enables all email into the system without doing any checks on the sources. “Medium RBL” blocks all email originating from known spam sources. “Strong RBL” blocks email from known spam sources and spam relay servers and dialup accounts.

SMTP Authentication

Enables remote users to send email through the Lotus Foundations server, preventing the need for the email setting to be modified every time a user changes locations. Lotus Foundations user account information must be provided within the email client settings for this feature to work.

Smart Hosting

Enables the SMTP server to route email to an intermediate server rather than directly to the user’s email server. This requires SMTP authentication.
