Not pre-sales, but account set-up: on-death contact?

22 July 2019 - 12:02 PM

I have looked in my Account settings (and in cPanel, understandably inappropriate) and cant find this. All account holders should probably have it. My financial advisor told me to make sure I do, everywhere. Google offers it in Gmail account settings. Here it is.

Who may I specify is authorized to possess my account upon my death?

In my case it would be a rather simple thing: my wifes email address is a gmail address. Hers happens to be an add-on domain within my site, and she would need to go through whatever contortions it takes to make hers the main domain for the account. (Those contortions are likely off-topic.)

How may I simply, tell MDDhosting, that without question, she is authorized to take the reins should I get run over by a semi or get struck stoopid by a breathtaking stroke?

iOS mail shows two “Junk” folders. Why?

24 April 2019 - 03:10 PM

Ive set up an account on iOS using my MDD-hosted mail server addresses (IMAP connection). Its working fine.

One cosmetic oddity, no doubt my bad. Please train me. In the iOS Mail app I see *two* folders displayed, both named Junk. FWIW, one has the usual Junk icon, that being, a tray with an X; and the other has the generic folder icon. I logged into my email on cPanel and see no odd setup, though Id be glad to place one if thatd make a cosmetic difference.

Any hints as to what might be going on?

Do Horde filters affect what I would fetch via iMap.

12 October 2018 - 12:24 PM

My webmail is currently set up with roundcube. My filters are set up via cPanel. I rarely use webmail, though: I funnel email down to my Apple mail app through an iMap connection.

If I switch from roundcube to horde, would filters I set up in horde affect the email I see in my iMap connection, or do those filters affectmonly what is visible when I login to horde?

Opinions? Gmail versus SpamAssassin?

22 August 2018 - 07:00 PM

Just curious. Is SpamAssassin as good as Gmail in trapping spam? Or can it be? (If so, I'd forward my overloaded Gmail address over to my beloved domain address!)


Yes, opinions are subjective, I know. I can write filters. (I have several at Gmail.) Just asking.

List of blacklisted IPs?

08 August 2018 - 09:39 AM

Is there a set of IPs in a blacklist to which access is automatically denied by MDD? (I think not, but I should ask.) Access to my website is failing for some. I discussed this on webhostingtalk. They suggested I ask for a blacklist and then whitelist the problematic IPs. (A tedious affair, to be sure.) So there.
