E-Mail and WEB: Bailine e-mail address and web space
Contact Bailine HQ if you want an email address or web space on
a Bailine domain.
Before you contact us you need to have a working private email
we can forward your Bailine emails.
If you want to distinguish between your private emails and Bailine
should create a new email address for Bailine use only, before you
You have to be the owner of a Bailine shop to qualify for email
or web space.
What Bailine email will you get?
Usually we will give you an address based on the area you are located
eg. email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org etc.
If your private email is email@example.com and we create the
firstname.lastname@example.org for you., any emails sent to email@example.com
will automatically end up in the firstname.lastname@example.org account.
Note that e-mail addresses can not reliable contain non-English
characters. You should also avoid CAPITAL letters in your address.
How to 'send' from your Bailine email
To be able to 'send' from your Bailine email, type in your Bailine
address as the 'reply address' in your email program
In most versions of Microsoft Outlook you use the menu Tools +
to change your reply address.
Doing this you are still sending from your private email account
receivers it will appear as if you are sending from your Bailine
How to test your email
If you unsure if your private email address is working: Send an
email to your
own address. If you do NOT receive your own emails it is likely
there is an error.
To test your Bailine email; send an email to your Bailine email
address. If you do
NOT receive your email into your private email account it is likely
there is an error.
Usually it takes only a few second for an email to reach you. In
some cases it may
take longer. And if there is a serious problem with a server, email
may be 'held up'
on the Internet for several days. That seldom happens though.
Check your reply address
When you receive your own email; check that the reply address of
own email is correct. If it is not correct other people may not
be able to
reply to your emails.
To be absolutely sure other people can reply to your own emails
reply to your own email: if you do not receive your own reply then
email may not be properly set up.
E-mail is NOT a 100% reliable media. E-mails may get lost in the
They may also end up at another receivers address (even if you have
the correct address yourself.)
However most e-mails will reach their destination.
Virus and Spam
You need to run a virus scanner.
You can get viruses from receiving e-mail, you can also get viruses
visiting certain web pages. You can also get viruses from CDs and
Spam is unwanted email. There is no way to avoid spam 100%. The
you give out your email address to others the more the chances of
hit by spam.
If you get too much unwanted email the only solution may be to
to using a new address.
If you do not receive emails from Bailine HQ check that the addresses
HQ has not been black listed on your side.
SPF and other problems
While receiving emails through email forwards is part of the internet
standard for email, some email providers will block that.
If that is the case you either have to stop using your Bailine
you have to switch to another email provider that follow the internet
standards for email.
One way for email providers to block spam is to install a system
SPF. SPF works great for stopping spam but the system is not 100%
compatible with the current internet email standards.
If you are on a system that installs SPF you have to stop using
Bailine forward, or you have to change your email account provider.
If you are on a SPF system not all people will be able to email
even if you are only using your private email address.
Why would you want a Bailine email forward?
Your client may find it easier to remember your address if it is
located on a
Bailine domain, but more important:
If your private email account develops a problem, or is discontinued,
change to another private email account, and we can update the forwarding
your Bailine email to you new address so that you will not have
your listed email on your advertising or notify your clients etc.
You can get free web space on a Bailine server for a web page.
The web address will in most cases be similar to your bailine email:
If you have the Bailine email address email@example.com
address will be myplace.bailine.com and www.myplace.bailine.com.
Default web space is typical 50-100 MB and is ment for Bailine
relevant web pages only. There are no spesific limits on bandthwidths
or CPU use though we reserve the right to decline users that uses
unreasonable server resources.
The servers are LAMP based running SUEXEC. Use passive FTP.
If your ISP is blocking the default port 21, try using port 22 instead.
(Google LAMP and SUEXEC etc for more information)
Contact HQ If you have other requirements, like database access
Why do Bailine supply email forwards and not true email accounts?
Most Internet providers will give you one or more email addresses
as part of your subscription.
E-mail is a complicated system with almost unlimited possibilities
for problems. Bailine is not an Internet provider and we do not
the resources for an e-mail support line.
You can get free and reliable email accounts on the Internet.
We do not monitor forwarded emails.
We do not guarantee our system will be 100% compatible with your
email provider, nor do we guarantee all forwards will succeed.
We reserve the right to discontinue the use of Bailine emails and/or
Bailine web space without notice.
Currently we have no plans to discontinue these services.
