My email has stopped working, can you help?
The most probable reason your email may not be working now is because you may have been using an IP address for the old email server. Ensure that your mail client (Outlook/Mac Mail/Thunderbird) is using the following details:
Incoming Server Name: mail.mydomain.com (replace with your domain) or use brown.active-ns.com
IMAP Port: 993
POP3 Port: 995
Outgoing Server Name: mail.mydomain.com (replace with your domain) or use brown.active-ns.com
What is the new control panel login?
For you it will be https://brown.active-ns.com:8443, your login details will be the same they were before, if you can’t login please email email@example.com and the team will be happy to help.
