We are trying to find a solution for clients who are having trouble with Outlook and other mail clients.
Also a solution they can use when travelling abroad and still have access to their mail without having to log in on their own computer.
Is there an online solution that allows you to check your mail through a web browser online, that still retains your main domain name?
For example, if I forward my email to Hotmail, when I reply, it displays the Hotmail address. Is there one which displays the original domain address?
I prefer an online solution that someone else hosts, but we might also set up a program on our server if it is available.
Another solution (if you have more than 10 accounts) would be to host your own linux mail server with imap, etc. If you don't have the bandwidth you can lease a reliable dedicated server for 100-200/mo.
We have a dedicated server, Red Hat Linux 9, but I am not sure about imap.
Is there a program where you can set it up so people can view their mail through their browser? If so, this would be the best solution.
I have found that Yahoo offers the domain function, but it is $30 a year.
There are many sites that give good tutorials on setting this up. One is qmailrocks. Another is lifewithqmail.
You might also look at some of the groupware packages that will run on the server from a web browser and will integrate with the imap server. I like the looks of one called group-office.
