H-Sphere integrates MS Exchange Server hosting that enables you to send and receive electronic mail and other forms of interactive communication through computer networks. The centralized e-mail servers connect to the Internet and private networks where e-mail messages are sent to and received from other e-mail users. Exchange Server offers you integrated collaborative messaging features such as scheduling, contact, and task management capabilities.

When you are signed up for an MS Exchange plan, you can do the following in your user control panel:

 

Managing mailboxes

Mailbox is an area in memory or on a storage device where e-mail is placed. In e-mail systems, each user has a private mailbox. When the user receives e-mail, the mail system automatically puts it in the mailbox.

Adding MX DNS Records

You can add MX records to the specific SMTP domain.

  1. Go to MS Exchange->DNS menu of your Control Panel
  2. Click to enable necessary domain. Once it's enabled, DNS record is created.

Note: Enable an MX record only if the domain is created in this account and is used for MS Exchange hosting. Do not enable an MX record if the domain is registered with another hosting account. In this case, add the corresponding MX record into the DNS configuration of this other hosting account.

 

Managing Distribution lists

A Distribution list is a list of e-mail addresses identified by a single name, such as list_name@domain.com.
