SmarterMail browser requirements

With the upgrade to Smartermail the web interface has been changed significantly. Below are the browser requirements should you need to access via webmail.


SmarterMail is fully supported by any modern and updated desktop browser. Minimum versions supported:

  • Google Chrome 30
  • FireFox 39
  • Microsoft Edge 40
  • Safari 10.1 (OS X 10.9)
  • Opera 17
  • Internet Explorer 11

Note: Any browser you use with SmarterMail should also support WebRTC to ensure video conferencing works for you and any participants. In addition, using any versions of the above browsers that are over a year old may lead to poor performance of the webmail interface.


In addition to working with most mobile email clients, not to mention third-party calendar and/or contact apps, SmarterMail offers the same robust webmail experience on mobile as it does on the desktop. As long as the mobile browswer you use supports CSS, JavaScript and other modern scripting platforms, accessing the SmarterMail webmail interface is not a problem. Minimum versions supported: Chrome Android 4.4 and iOS 10.

System Status

Jan 21 2016, 1:30pm:
The mail server is running normally.

Jan 21 2016, 11:45am:
This morning we discovered one of our corporate user accounts had been compromised. This allows a spammer to send spam email through our server to literally hundreds of thousands of recipients with machete reviews.  We caught the problem quickly but the damage has been done. We have turned off the SMTP service for a short while until we can clear out the mail queue. The result is nobody can send email for the time being. We hope to have this rectified within an hour or so.

How to set up your EMail account on your iPhone

 If you are using a mail client such as Outlook or Windows Live Mail, these must be set to leave mail on the server for a period of time else your server inbox will always be empty and your phone will not be able to pull down all of your mail.

Creating an account in your iPhone

4. Under the heading ‘Mail’ – select ‘Add Mail Account’ and enter ;
• Name: Joe Blogs
• Email address:
• Password: xxxx
• Description: (eg – my work email)
5. Now select ‘Next’.

The iPhone will now check account information and will bring you to a new window once done.  You may get a pop up window saying: Can’t connect using SSL. Would you like to try without SSL? – select ‘YES’. Be patient.

This is where you will set up incoming and outgoing server information.

Bogus email asking for account information

If you receive an email from anyone asking you to follow a web link and provide your user account information, don’t do it. Mag-Net will never ask you to do such a thing without posting the instruction on our web page as well as sending email.

It is good practice to pay attention to the Internet domain of the sender and the path of the web link before clicking on the link. These messages are what is called “Phishing Email” and these are being sent with much greater frequency these days.Read more on
