7 Reasons to Have More Than One Email Account in 2019

Publicado por Christin em agosto 18, 2019

Why have multiple email accounts you might ask? When setting up an email account, your first instinct might be to create one email address for all of your email needs. This way you’ll only need to sign into one location to access your emails, and your logins across the web will all use the same address. For simplicity’s sake, this might seem like a good idea. In reality, the opposite is true. Considering the number of emails people receive on a daily basis, keeping all your emails in one account will actually make email management more complicated, not less. You’ll have a harder time getting to the most important emails as your inbox becomes overloaded with spam and promotional emails. If you’re emailing for personal and professional out of the same account, you run the risk of sending a personal email to a professional contact. Yikes!   Instead, you should have multiple email addresses for different purposes. And if signing into multiple accounts seems troublesome, there’s a simple solution. Using something like the Unified Inbox feature with Mailbird allows you to keep multiple accounts organized in one location. Problem solved! If you’re still not convinced that having multiple email addresses is a good practice, here are 7 reasons you should have more than one email address. 1. To separate business from personal. First and foremost, it’s never a good idea to mix your business and personal inboxes, especially if your personal email address is something goofy from the early days…

What Resources Are Available Now That Qmail.org Is Gone?

Publicado por Viola Eva em agosto 5, 2019

For many people, sending an email involves a few simple steps. In most cases, all you need is to have your email address, the email address of the person to whom you’re sending the message, a subject and the message itself. As long as you know how to click the send button, your email is as good as sent. However, in the background, the action is a little more complicated. This is where a Mail Transfer Agent (MTA) plays an integral part in ensuring that a message successfully moves from a sender to the receiver. Qmail is one of the popular MTAs that have dominated the internet over the last two or so decades. One of the most popular reference sites for Qmail users was Qmail.org. However, try to access the site today, and you’ll discover that it is gone. We took some time to research what happened to Qmail.org. Then, we identify resources that people who relied on Qmail.org can resort to now that it is no longer available.   What Is Qmail? Dale Sill, the writer of the Qmail Handbook entitled Introducing Qmail, describes Qmail as “an Internet MTA for Unix and Unix-like operating systems.” Sill goes on to explain that the function of an MTA is twofold. The first is to accept new messages coming from a user’s computer and deliver them to the network of the recipient. The second is to accept emails coming from other systems, which are usually directed at local users. Many people…
