We've updated our mail to 15.2 and made a couple changes you will need to be aware of.
Change to login methods. We now use a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certificate when sending mail. Please change your send and receive email servers to use "mail.sgdesign.net" for both send and recieve email servers. Also select SSL secure connection when you have that choice.
|Settings - both sending and recieving servers use mail.sgdesign.net and both use SSL|
|Sending (SMTP) IMAP|
|Sending (SMTP) POP|
Example of setting up SSL in Outlook (POP and IMAP)

Traveling out of the country?
Many of the Internet Service Providers in foreign countries do not allow the sending of mail on the usual Port 25.
To help allow customers to still use their Smart Phones, Tablet Devices etc, we have created an alternative port for sending email. You can also use this setting here in the States so making the change prior to a vacation might save some valuable relaxation time. To change your sending port, select your SMTP settings for the account you want to change. Next change the port value to 587. Save and send a test message to confirm. Example.
I usually get more mails what happened - Greylisting has been restarted with the upgrade
Greylisting has restarted so there will be a delay (usually 20 minutes) as all email senders are cataloged and allowed to pass the second time they come back. Spam from Zombie machines can not resend like a real mail server making this a very effective anti-spam method. Note you can turn off grey listing under your Account Settings if you like.
