On Sunday, April 21st at 3:00pm PST we will begin the process of upgrading your mail services. If you do not use our mail services please disregard this email (e.g. you host your own mail server or use Gmail). The process will require some minor downtime and some small changes for you on Monday morning.

PLEASE MAKE THE FOLLOWING CHANGES TO YOUR EMAIL ON MONDAY APRIL 22ND.

On Monday morning please update all devices that connect to email to use the following new incoming and outgoing mail server settings for the domains using mail here.

Incoming Mail Server: mail.ephost.com
Outgoing Mail Server: mail.ephost.com

If you are adventurous and wish to make additional changes please refer to the following knowledgebase article:

The new service will feature substantially higher disk space limits, a new web mail interface, new mail synchronization options (e.g. Microsoft ActiveSynch, CalDav, CardDav, and Exchange Web Services) and SSL encrypted email. 

Web Mail Access Starting Monday April 22nd:

Additionally, we have recently completed integrating our control panel system into your website. Using the username and password we sent you initially you can now login to your account and then to the control panel system.

Outlook 2013 (PC) and Outlook 2011 (Mac) Synchronization Options
Posted by Joe Rebis on 11 January 2013 07:02 AM

This latest release of our mail server software now includes synchronization (mail, contacts and calendars) between our web mail service, your mobile devices, and now the desktop version of Outlook 2013 (PC) and/or Outlook 2011 (Mac) - for complete end-to-end synchronization between them. Microsoft Active Synch is available for $2.00 per email address per month and supports multiple devices. Exchange Web Services for Outlook 2011 (Mac) is free. Additionally, Windows 2008's default mail client is also supported. EWA and EAS work over ports 80/443 so you don't have to mess around with SMTP servers regardless of the network you are using. This simplifies setup for people on the go. You can look forward to additional options that are either partially supported or expected early next year such as viewing the availability of other users and conference room scheduling on connected devices. When compared to the cost of MS Exchange it's an easy decision.

Introducing Railo v4
Posted by Joe Rebis on 11 January 2013 06:59 AM

We are proud to announce that our newest shared server supports Railo v4 instead of Adobe ColdFusion. Railo is a mature and speedy CFML engine which cleanly replaces the Adobe product. The latest release leaves only a handful of unsupported tags for which most developers have simply replaced with jQuery anyway. We would otherwise convert all of our servers to it if we didn't host such a large amount of legacy Adobe ColdFusion applications which may still use these old tags. One of the many unique aspects of Railo is the Railo Administrator. Each domain using Railo has it's own administrator so that you can administer DSNs, Mappings, and other application level settings such as mail, sessions and ORM. We are so pleased with Railo, it's ease of updating, and the fact it's community driven. Spend your money on yourself rather than licensing as they say. Those wishing to give it a try can contact Joe or Tegan at support@ephost.com for a 30-Day demo account. Of course, dedicated customers can install directly on their server at no charge because it's open-source. Ralio supported editions are also available directly from Railo.

Adobe ColdFusion Upgrade
Posted by Joe Rebis on 11 January 2013 06:57 AM

We are currently in the process of upgrading Adobe ColdFusion on our existing shared servers. We had planned to upgrade much earlier following the big migration earlier this year. We are currently undecided if we plan to migrate to CF 9 or CF 10 due to the large amount of legacy Adobe ColdFusion applications we are hosting for customers. In either case we'll upgrade in January. This will be out final upgrade of Adobe ColdFusion on our servers as we plan to begin using Railo ColdFusion v4, a mature and speedy open-source option, for all future servers. See the following article.

We have two private MX servers available for users who are running their own email (e.g. MS Exchange or Gmail) and need anti-spam, anti-virus and back-up email capabilities. Our servers can accept and scan your email then redirect to your email server. In the event youre email server is down the messages will be spooled on our primary and secondary servers until your email server is backup. The cost for most customers is $24.95 per domain per month which is outstanding when compared to Postini @ $5.00 per address.

We have recently added a new mobile interface for our web mail service. Previously it was challenging to use web mail from a mobile device. The new interface is easy to use and fast. To login just click the "mobile" link under the normal web mail login screen from your mobile device.
