Email Hosting

Seattle Email Hosting Services

For home use, email is a convenient and inexpensive way to stay in touch. For a business however, e-mail is a mission-critical utility that has a serious impact on the results you can expect to achieve from your web presence.

We make it simple for your company to communicate and get things done by offering a variety of email hosting services to meet your business needs. We offer Hosted Exchange as well as standard POP email boxes. We also offer a unique hybrid which combines both types of mail service under one domain.

We don't cut corners for our clients when it comes to email hosting. Our email service is so good, we guarantee it! Try it for a month, and if you don't like it, we'll refund your monthly fee.

  • Secure POP / IMAP Connection
  • Webmail Access
  • Virus and Spam Protection
  • Secure Encryption
  • SMTP Authentication
  • Large Capacity Mailboxes

Webmail Access

Send, receive, and view your email anywhere you have Internet access using your web browser. With our email hosting, you can log onto your home computer and view email you sent from the office, or pick up that reminder notice from your boss about what you need to bring to the meeting tomorrow.

POP3 and IMAP4 access

You can also use POP3 & IMAP4 to provide access to email through popular desktop email software such as:

  • Microsoft Outlook
  • Mozilla Thunderbird
  • Eudora
  • Mac Mail
  • Entourage
  • Netscape Mail

Virus and Spam Protection

Triple scanning virus protection

Each inbound and outbound email is scanned using a unique three-stage, dual virus scanning process. This protects our clients from sending and receiving computer viruses, even within file attachments.

Fewer Bounced Emails

We don’t allow bulk email to be sent from our servers so they are never blacklisted. This means your email gets to the intended recipient.

Spam filtering

Email is filtered using advanced spam recognition and filtering technology, which utilizes more than 40 constantly evolving tests that are performed on every e-mail that enters our system.

Spam filtering Safelist

Each email client can build a Safelist for their account in order to make sure that the spam filters never incorrectly identify an email as spam. Messages from email addresses on Safelists are always delivered.

Spam filtering Exclusive List

Each email client can set their mailbox to only receive email from those within their address book if they so choose. This Exclusive List feature is for clients who want absolutely no e-mails from third parties outside of their address book.

Security

Secure Encryption

Latest SSL encryption techniques hide data during transmission so Internet crooks can't access your sensitive mail.

SMTP authentication

Bear Creek Web requires SMTP authentication and maintains a strict "anti-spam" policy. This ensures that our outgoing mail servers are not blacklisted and that customers can send e-mail without their messages ending up in the spam folder of the intended recipient.
