Group Email Service
DriveHQ email hosting service is fully integrated with our Group Account service. You have all of the
flexibility that comes with the Group Account feature when managing your sub-users' email accounts.
Moreover, your sub-users can also access other DriveHQ cloud IT services
(e.g. Cloud File Server, Online File Backup and Sharing, FTP Hosting and Web Hosting) for no extra charge.
Business Custom Email Domain
To set up your business domain email addresses, you must have a domain name, or you can purchase a domain name from a domain registrar (e.g. GoDaddy).
From the domain registrar's website, you can add a DNS MX record. The MX record should point to
DriveHQ's email server: mail.firstcloudit.com (or 184.108.40.206). When it is done, you can log on to
DriveHQ webmail to add your email domain to DriveHQ's email service.
For backing up most file types, you can use DriveHQ Online Backup software;
but for backing up MS Outlook emails,
you can use DriveHQ EmailManager software.
It can automatically back up your Outlook emails and contacts.
Most other backup software can only back up Outlook PST files as a single file. It is very inefficient as it needs to upload/download a huge .PST file
to backup/restore just a few emails.
DriveHQ EmailManager is extremely efficient as it can incrementally backup/restore emails one by one. Your emails will be backed up to DriveHQ webmail.
You can easily drag and drop emails between your local emails and cloud emails.
