FAQ - PPP Accounts
The following is a compilation of questions most often asked by our analog (PPP) users.
It depends on the mail program that you use. See Email Support for detailed information.
Here are the generic mail settings:
SMTP Server: mailhost.gate.net
POP3 Server: pop.gate.net
Please note: Eudora needs the information for your POP account. This is your firstname.lastname@example.org (enter your own username).
Envelope or from line errors occur when a mail message is corrupted or truncated. These errors must be resolved by a CyberGate technician. Call Tech Support at 954-421-1111 (or 800-522-0342) to get this resolved immediately.
This message is generated when the server thinks more than one user is trying to access your mail account at one time. Sometimes, this is caused by faulty mail software or an attempt to reconnect before the server realizes that a connection was dropped. A Pop Lock prevents any access to the mailbox for a period of 15 minutes. Any attempt to reconnect during that period simply extends the clock on the Pop Lock. Since these errors are cleared by the system, wait at least 15 minutes and try again. If your mail software automatically checks your mail at intervals less than 15 minutes, close your mail program to avoid extending the Pop Lock unnecessarily.
CyberGate offers additional mailboxes at $5.00/mo. Please call CyberGate Sales at 800-NET-GATE.
A .forward file would not work since canceled accounts are taken out of out mail server's list.
It depends on the news program that you are using. Within the program's configuration, set the NNTP server to: news.gate.net.
If you are trying to connect to pop.gate.net (or news.gate.net) from your CyberGate account and were refused - make sure that they are properly named. If they are correct, there may be a problem with the mail (or news) server or the load may be high. Try again later. Our system does not permit connection to theCyberGate news or smtp (mailhost.gate.net) server unless you are connected to the Internet via a CyberGate dialup connection.
