Email ends in @cstel.net or @comsouth.net

Please Note: @comsouth.net or @cstel.net Email addresses are POP3 accounts (short for Post Office Protocol). These download all email to your device locally so you can view them off line. Because of this they are not meant to be checked from multiple devices. This is the reason that all of these mobile devices have templates in them for free Email providers such as gmail which is an IMAP account, designed to be used on multiple devices. The IMAP accounts also connect using an SSL connection; this is much like going to a secure web site to do your banking transactions and such. The POP3 accounts connect using “Clear Text Password”, meaning anyone monitoring your actions on a public WiFi can see your password.
Plain English: What does that mean to me?
- To work around getting email on multiple devices you must leave a copy on the server. At some point your account will fill up, unless you manually delete them from the web site. If your account fills up you will not receive new email. When adding new devices, they will also download all the old email as well. There is a support fee to delete them for you.
- Your device may not have enough memory to keep all email locally; phones do not have as much storage space as your computer. This is often a cause for phones to lock up.
- The sent items will become fragmented since they are being sent from multiple locations.
- Passwords being in “plain text” are just that, they are not encrypted. Someone watching your device on a public or work environment could see and capture your password.
