Mailto are not deprecated at all. You are wrong by saying that webmail can't handle mailto: links. It's browser stuff to handle mailto link correctly. For example, if you don't have a mail handler installed, Firefox proposes you with several webmail like Gmail/Yahoo. The real problem is wrong mailto handling. It Is usually done on system when IE, which is ...

mailto: links in webpages are not deprecated, for the reasons already mentioned... webmail can be configured to use them and users can still 'Copy link address' when the email is only in the href and not visible on the page. HOWEVER, the main reason for not using mailto: links (unobfuscated at least) are email harvesters. Automated bots that crawl webpages ...

I have to admit that I have not followed e-mail clients much over the years. However, I do not think that too many if any e-mail clients screen links, however any anti-spam and anti-virus software will. Generally, these e-mails are returned as an attachment in a text e-mail warning that there is a problem. Some anti-spam software will drop the e-mail ...

If you migrate the website from old to new provider in cPanel format. It will be migrated as it is and will transfer the emails as well. Please check with your new host as to how they are going to perform the transfer. On a safer side, download all the emails on your local machine using Outlook. Doing this, all emails from old host will be downloaded on ...

The mail "subdomain" (possibly just a CNAME record in DNS) is probably set up by default on your hosting account. AFAIK this is just a convenience. The mail subdomain is the expected default when setting up an email clients SMTP and POP3 settings and several programs will default to this. Whilst this DNS record is present you will struggle to setup the ...

The "mail" subdomain is usually used to point to your POP/IMAP/SMTP server so that you configure your mail client easily. The "webmail" subdomain is usually points to a different machine that allows your user to check their email with a web browser. The only way this will work is if you have a web server running on the "mail" machine and you have some ...

If you made a full backup of cPanel (as you should do routinely) and downloaded it or stored it remotely, then you can extract the backup on your computer or server, and then upload the mail folder in the home directory to the home directory of cPanel on the new host. The mail directory should be located in /home/username, and you might have to rename the ...

Core files contain the image of the process' memory at the time of its termination (i.e. when it crashed). They can be used to inspect the state of the program when it was terminated. If you're seeing lots of them and they are recreated fast, I would invest some time in debugging which specific program crashed and why. It's probably not a good thing it ...

Yes, it's possible, but first a note: Win 7 IIS will limit concurrent connection requests to 3 (home premium) or 10 (anything higher), so it's recommended to use Windows Server software to run production boxes. You'll first need to install your preferred mail server software. Then you have a couple options depending on how your chosen mail server & ...

It seems to me that there are three options: 1. Email me at <a href="mailto:fred@example.com">fred@example.com</a> 2. <a href="mailto:fred@example.com">Email</a> me. 3. Email me at fred@example.com I can believe that some purists would argue for option 2, but I think that most people use option 1 and that it's the most usable ...

On my webmail setup (Squirrelmail with Dovecot), the user accounts are actually managed on the Dovecot side of the street. While it's not impossible to have a webmail client that would have access to these user accounts, you would have to find a client with support for your type of email server. Apparently SquirrelMail 1.5 and above have this ability, but ...

I think that Atmail might be a good solution for you. A suitable configuration might be: Atmail Server Hosted Cloud ISP license Works out to be USD0.50/month for 3GB storage, which is way under your EUR20/year budget. You can work out your own configuration here: http://www.atmail.com/store/
