Mail Problems?

The domain www.fsjames.com has been redirected to fortstjames.com for over a decade and may be retired or sold at any time.
@fsjames.com mail accounts have been working as a courtesy to former customers from before 2014, mainly for seniors who find change difficult. Nobody’s paid a nickel ever for the service, I pay it. Do not use it for important business, legal matters, etc as I might just decide to shut it down if costs or significant time needed to keep it running increases! Use Outlook, Telus, Gmail, YeeHaw for that.

If you expressly desire a LOCAL email address you may contact me and set one up @fortstjames.com for a $20 per year fee.

If you have trouble, use the webmail button on fortstjames.com instead of a mail client. You get only so much space on the server. If you use modern client setup wizards they set up IMAP which leaves a copy of everything on the server too, and it eventually overflows.

Overflowed mailboxes are the most common problem – check that first. Go to www.fortstjames.com and click the @fsjames.com WEBMAIL icon. Log in. empty or purge your TRASH Folder, then go to the SENT folder and Empty all the files over a week old. Go back to your TRASH and empty or purge it again. That should fix it.
If you still have problems, call 996-4008 and I will check things. If I need to come set up or fix your end, it will only cost you $35.

Passwords: I don’t know your password, so if you’ve forgotten it you’ll have to call and set up another one. One that meets today’s security requirements.

CHANGE YOUR E-MAIL. If you’d like your old @fsjames.com mail to go to another email address, email admin@area250.com or text 996-4008 with your old fsjames account and your new one (gmail, outlook, yahoo, etc.) and I will direct fsjames mail to it. I don’t need any of your passwords to do that. You can also have an @fortstjames.com mail account for a fee.

Organize your mail if you just can’t throw away those 12 year old jokes from your sister: Make an Old Mail folder and move old messages to it
Thunderbird, Windows Mail:
-File Menu -> New -> Folder..
-Give the mailbox a name (i.e “old mail”) and Create as a subfolder of “Local Folders”

Microsoft Outlook
-File Menu -> New -> Folder..
-Give the mailbox a name (i.e “old mail”) and place the folder inside “Personal Folders”

Apple Mail
-Mailbox Menu -> New Mailbox..
-Give the mailbox a name (i.e “old mail”) and set the location to “On My Mac”

Don’t use @fsjames.com anymore? Please call or text 996-4008 and let me know so I can remove the old account. At the end of each year, I look at the mail server. If you haven’t logged in (I can tell that much) in 6 months, I will automatically delete the account and everything in it.

Telus Mail change

@telus.net is now hosted by Google. Just go to gmail.com with your browser and sign in with your @telus.net account and password. It may force you to change your password the first time.
If you need to use a mail client, add a new gmail account with your @telus.net email and password and delete the old Telus one. Or call and set up remote so I can do it for you.

TLDR…. fsjames mail is WEBMAIL only. I won’t even help you set it up on Outlook, Thunderbird or Windows mail.
