Email Service Upgrade for all Chesapeake.Net Customers (Mandatory)
Effective immediately , Chesapeake.Net is implementing a no cost improvement to our mail server that should help reduce spam and unwanted emails for all our users. This free service will significantly enhance the Postini Anti-Spam/Anti-Virus filter being used by most of our users and will especially help those users that have chosen not to use the Postini Spam/Anti-Virus filter.
This is a MANDATORY change. ALL users that have '@chesapeake.net' contained in their email address MUST make the following changes to their email settings immediately in order to assure that their Chesapeake.Net Email continues to work properly.
The ONLY Exception: Tier 3 users that do not have '@chesapeake.net' in their email address should not follow these instructions
Choose the one that is appropriate for you:
1. Instructions for Microsoft Outlook Express or MS Outlook 2000
(This is the default email program installed on most machines)
2. Instructions for Microsoft Outlook 2002 or 2003
3. Instructions for Mac OSX Mail
4. Still Having Problems?
Question: I'm getting a "Protocol Error" or a "Relaying Denied" message
Answer: Many Anti-Virus programs including Mcafee, Norton Anti-virus and AVG are not compatible with SMTP authentication. If you have one of these anti-virus programs, turn off the option to check outgoing email for viruses - do NOT turn off the virus check for incoming mail or you will leave your machine vulnerable.
Also, some older email programs do not support SMTP Authentication. Examples include version 6.0 and older of Netscape, version 4 of Eudora, version 9.0.0 of Entourage - If you have one of these programs you will need to upgrade to a later version. In the interim, you can use our webmail program to send and receive email at this link.
