Welcome to our Free Web Based XMail service, running since 1998. Through XMail's Ajax interface, you'll be able to access and manage your XMail and personal Web Hosting account using the simplicity of a standard web browser. For Android we recommend the Brave Browser.
- Free XMail offers 1GB mailbox storage, 1GB personal web hosting/private disk storage, 100MB messages, POP3 and POP3S.
Please read the following:
NOTE: Inactive "Free" accounts which have not been used for 1 year are automatically deleted.
All sessions begin at the Login screen. Before you can use any of the XMail features you must choose a user name password in the "Create New Account" section of the opening page.
You will be asked to answer the hCaptcha challenge which is to ensure a real person is creating the account and not an automated robot script.
Once you've filled in the required fields, click the "Proceed" button to access your "Inbox".
Users are allowed a maximum of five password attempts, after which the account will be blocked temporarily for 15 minutes if the password is incorrect.
POP3, for use with external E-Mail programs, is supported by setting the incoming mail server to: pop3.xmail.net,
POP3S over SSL is supported by using port 995 or STARTTLS on port 110.
We strongly recommend the use of this feature for security purposes. Be sure to open this port if you're accessing the Internet from behind a firewall.
For SMTP set the outgoing mail server to: smtp.xmail.net, SSL is supported by using STARTTLS on port 587. You will need to install your XMail.net personal security certificate obtained through /Application/Security certificate request
XMail personal security certificate
Through menu item '/Applications/Security certificate request' you can submit a request to generate your personal security certificate.
The generated certificate can be used for your personal S/MIME
email security and can also be used for end-to-end encryption.
End-to-end encryption in your email application also can digitally signs your email, which means a recipient can be sure that it was you that sent it, rather than a forgery.
XMail personal security certificate must be used for SMTP SSL/TLS client authentication in your email application.
The certificate is signed by Aaex CA Private Certificate Authority.
Verified XMail compatible email applications that can operate with personal client certificates for Desktop: Mozilla Thunderbird
, for Android: K-9 Mail, FairEmail

The contents of your Inbox folder will be displayed immediately upon logging in.

Clicking on the heading will cause the listing to be sorted by that column.
To view the contents of a message, click on the message's subject. You'll be taken to the Message screen.
The Message Screen
The Message Screen displays the contents of the selected message. From here, you can browse message attachments, reply to the current message, delete the current message, or advance to the next message in your current mailbox.
Plain Text messages are displayed by default. HTML or MIME messages are displayed as attachments which are found in the "Parts:" table directly above the plain message text box. To view an attachment click on the hyper-linked name, or open it by clicking on the download image located at the right side of the screen.
The Compose Window
You can send mail in a variety ways. You might choose to compose a new message or perhaps to reply to an existing message. Whichever method you choose, however, will open the standard Compose Window.
The Compose Window allows you to set, among other things, the message recipient's address (who you're sending mail to), the message subject, and the message contents. Fill out the appropriate fields at the top of the window (only the To: address is required, but the Subject: is suggested) and type your message in the large lower field. Once you've completed entering your message, you may choose to Spell Check your message text. Once you're done composing your new message, click the "Send" button to send the message to the recipient.
