Account Management:

All R-Networks email account management is performed through either the WebMail interface or via the Web://cp hosting control panel. Refer to the section titled WebMail for detailed instructions on changing your password, email aliases, forward, autoreply and delivery filters.

Note: If you have a web hosting account with R-Networks it is recommended that account management, including email, be performed through the Web://cp control panel. Refer to the appropriate document for instructions on accessing and using the Web://cp control panel.

Spam Protection:

At R-Networks we work hard to protect you from unsolicited email. We have taken a multilayer approach to dealing with junk email and think it is important you know how we handle you messages. R-Networks uses the SpamHaus SBL and XBL mail block lists. When an email is received for you our servers first check to see if it came from a source on one of these lists. If the email did originate from a source listed, the message is immediately dropped and never delivered to you, the intended recipient. In reality this has very little affect on you, except you receive significantly less SPAM. These lists contain only the most hardcore spammers in the world. If you are concerned that someone sending you email may be on one of these lists you are welcome to read more at http://www.spamhaus.org.

The majority of SPAM email you receive is placed into a Junk_Email folder in your account. This is so you can review if at your convenience and check it if you expected to receive a message and it has not arrived. This way you maintain control of your account simply. There are no address books to maintain, no white lists and black lists. You receive the email and can review it later if need be. Note that R-Networks has the ability to adjust your spam filter, determine what is placed in the Junk_Email folder, can add additional SPAM folders and can adjust what is classified as SPAM if necessary to suite your needs. For more information contact support@r-networks.net.
