TaosNet Email

TaosNet has recently migrated to a new email system (see here for more information). We have provided some information to help smooth the transition and to help you take advantage of the extra features in this new system.

System Settings:

  • Incoming Mail Server

    • Server: mail.newmex.com
    • Username: Full Email Address (i.e. myemail@taosnet.com)
  • Outgoing Mail Server

    • Server: mail.newmex.com
    • Port: 587
    • Use Authentication (same credentials as Incoming Mail Server)

Accessing and Managing Spam Settings:

You can check your spam folder from any IMAP client, but you must use Webmail to change your Spam Settings. To use Webmail:

  • In your browser (Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Internet Explorer, etc), go to https://mail.newmex.com/ or use the form on the right side of this page.
  • Enter in your full email address, and email password in the sign in form on the right.
  • Once logged in, you can see your folder listing on the upper left portion of the page.
  • Clicking on the Spam folder gives you access to your Spam (Quarantine in Postini).
  • To edit your Spam settings, find "AntiSpam Settings" link on the bottom of the left side of the page.
  • Spam Settings Explained:

    • In your spam settings you should see some radio boxes for "Normal", "Normal, (w/Quarantine) (RECOMMENDED)", and "Strict".
    • Both "Normal" (without Quarantine) and "Strict" do NOT have a quarantine. This means that if you receive a email that it thinks is spam, it will discard it. There will be NO way for you to see this message.
    • The Blacklist and whitelists act much like they did in Postini (the Subject Blacklist is new but acts the same as the others for Subject lines).

Email Settings:

You can manage your email settings through the link "Email Settings" locate below the "AntiSpam Settings" link. This allows you to setup email forwarding, change your email password, or setup an auto-reply responder.

Of special importance is also the box "Email Addresses Using This Mailbox". Any forwards or auto-replies you setup in the Email Settings only affects the email address that you used to login to Webmail. Password changes affect all email addresses listed.

In this example, any mail sent to test4@newmex.com, test4@taosnet.com, or test4@taosnm.com will go to the same mailbox. You could login to webmail with any of these email addresses. Now if I login as test4@taosnm.com and update the forward:

This listing then appears as follows:

Note that test4@taosnm.com now show "Forwarded" under the "Delivered To" column. That means that email sent to test4@taosnm.com is now being forwarded. test4@newmex.com and test4@taosnet.com are unaffected by the Forwarding.
