What is mail policy and email limits?

Mail Limits

There is an maximum amount of emails which can be send out per hour is 30 emails from one account or 300 emails per domain and 700 emails per day, this limit is also applied "Web Hosting Service", "Towards Mailing Lists" and "Online E-Store System". Focus Network Company reserves the violation of any of the foregoing may result in immediate deactivate or termination upon any indication of such activity without notice.

Many of our servers have a 60 pop checks per hour limit per email address.? If you go over this you're likely to get a wrong password error message saying login incorrect. Just wait an hour and it will automatically unlock you. to prevent this from happening again make sure to disable auto checking or at least set it to something higher such as 10 minutes.

Any mailing list larger than 2000 will require a dedicated server solution from us. Note: dividing one large list into smaller lists to get below this limit is not allowed.

We have a maximum size of emails of 50 MByte and under, any email over 50 MByte will be automatically rejected, please use your FTP to transfer big files!

Mailing Lists Rules

  1. Anytime you're sending a message no matter how large your e-mail list is you must throttle it.? We recommend you throttle it to at the very least sending 1 email every 6 seconds. If the mailing list software you're using does not allow you to throttle you must switch to something else. We recommend Mailman which can be found in your control panel under PLESK. If you do not throttle and you try sending let's say 1500 emails the server will try sending all 1500 in 1 second which is not possible. This will cause the server load to go very high and for the entire server to be sluggish until this process is completed. It is our job to keep the server up and running without being sluggish. Anyone who causes the servers load to go high will be suspended and the process will be terminated. If you choose not to throttle you will most likely be suspended for crashing the server without notice.

  2. Any mailing list over 100 emails is only allowed to be sent to during off-peak times to prevent high server loads. Off peak times qualify as all day Saturday and Sunday, and 1am - 8 am eastern time M-F.

  3. You are not allowed to mail to a mailing list you were given or purchased. This is spamming because they never agreed to you personally sending them mail. We do not care and how you justify it this is spam and will result in termination of the offending account.

  4. Any unsolicited e-mail being sent will result in termination of the offending account without notice. We take a zero tolerance stance against sending of unsolicited e-mail.
