In case, your SBCGlobal email isn’t working properly, then it could be due to some issues with the email. It doesn’t matter if you have configured your email properly, using the correct settings, sometimes, things can change on its own, thus resulting in a non-functional email. Let us discuss as to why SBCGlobal email stops functioning and how it can be fixed.
- Unable to send and receive emails properly
When accessing an email, you should check whether your email client is fine or problematic. In case, you are using an email client provided by the website manager, then make sure to use the email client that you have installed already. You should also check whether you could send and receive emails properly via webmail or not. If the issue is with the email client, then you should check it. In case, the email can’t be sent via webmail, then the issue is with the server.
- Unable to send emails via an email client.
If you are not able to send emails through your email client but can receive the same, then you should check if your ISP is blocking the port used for controlling the spam mails. The port used for controlling spam emails is ‘Port 25’ and this can create an issue with the functioning of the email. If you manage the email yourself, then you must have a dedicated IP address. If you have, then you can access an alternate port, i.e., ‘Port 2525’.
- Issues caused due to ‘authentication’ error
While checking your email client, check if you have set the authentication setting for outgoing server to ‘password’. If you have not, then you will receive the problem while sending emails.
- Problems pertaining to POP lock
If you have configured your email using POP3 settings, then you can easily manage your emails. However, your data may not be safe in POP3 settings, so you will have to ensure a lock on the email at the time of checking emails. In case, you are using your SBCGlobal email on multiple devices simultaneously, then you will find your email to boot because of the lock.
- Difference between IMAP & POP
In POP service, your emails are stored in a single huge file on the webmail server, whereas in IMAP, each email is stored in its dedicated folder in the form of a directory. IMAP is better than POP when it comes to accessibility. Moreover, POP creates issues while accessing huge mailboxes, but no such problem exists in IMAP. You can also access a mailbox as big as 100 MB while using IMAP.
These are some of the most common issues in SBCGlobal email. However, you can fix them by getting in touch with SBCGlobal support providers.
