Webmail

Webmail merupakan email berasaskan laman sesawang atau dikenali sebagai ‘web-based email’ yang boleh dilayari melalui suatu program atau ‘browser’ seperti ‘Firefox’ yang dibangunkan oleh ‘Mozilla’ , ‘internet explorer oleh Microsoft atau ‘Chrome’ oleh Google. Ia boleh dilayari dari mana-mana saja selagi ada kemudahan internet melalui pautan masing-masing dengan memasukkan ID pengguna dan kata laluan. Ia juga tidak memerlukan aplikasi untuk memuat turun email.

Hotmail , yahoo mail, gmail adalah contoh terbaik ‘webmail’ percuma. Tetapi tidak sesuai dijadikan email perniagaan. Untuk itu, ia memerlukan domain sendiri dan hosting berbayar. Pautan webmail bagi hosting berbayar akan menggunakan nama domain sebagai pautan sendiri seperti berikut webmail.domainsendiri.com. Bagi yang mempunyai ‘hosting’ sendiri yang berbayar aplikasi popular seperti platform CPanel menawarkan 3 jenis antara muka yang berbeza seperti ‘Horde’ , Squirrelmail dan Roundcube.

Mynic .my Technical Glitch

On the eve 16th of June 2018, Mynic DNS servers reportedly down due to issue with DNSSEC. The downtime apparently occurred during Hari Raya holiday – where most people were on Hari Raya holiday.
The issue was by a glitch with Mynic DNSSEC key while pushing zone information to IANA servers.1
The restoration was swift but DNS take time to propagate all over the internet. 2

Only one of our customers from oil and gas industries had difficulty sending emails from their vessels out in open sea via sat comm. We instructed them to switch to another DNS resolver to overcome this issue. (after mynic rectified  the problem)

Goodbye SquirrelMail

As of cPanel & WHM version 74, cPanel  will begin to deprecate  support of SquirrelMail. The reason is that Squirrelmail is no longer updated since last update  May 30th, 2013. It could no longer be patched to prevent security flaws.  Due to this reason cPanel have decided to deprecate SquirrelMail. Customers are being left with two bundled webmail applications – Horde or Roundcube.
