All basic accounts include an e-mail address (you@TheWorld.com), smtp – outgoing mail server), pop/imap – to pick up your mail, spam filtering, mail forwarding, two aliases for example First.Last@TheWorld.com subject to availability, 100MB mailbox space, 100MB disk space for mailboxes etc, plus two options your choice.

Important! Existing Customers: If you are a current customer under the basic ("A La Carta") plan you will automatically be switched on September 1, 2010. We will try to infer the best options for you but will honor any reasonable retroactive change request. For example if you are currently paying for unlimited dial-up or using dial-up you will automatically get that option included in your new account.

If you currently have a "Gold" account you will have to switch to the new account yourself via our web page, email, or call our office, choosing which options you want. Your account will remain unchanged, Gold, ($19.89/month etc.) until you switch.

You get two options, your choice, included with your account. The choices are:

Email Aliases
Email Aliases let you receive and/or send email as another name such as First.Last@TheWorld.com or if you have another domain with us First.Last@DOMAIN.TLD. They are on an as-available basis as they must be unique for each domain.

** Limit of 3 per change fee.

Disk Space
Additional disk space is on an as-available basis. Minimum purchase unit is 100MB. Can not be split between mail, shell, or web site.
File, Web, or Mailbox Recovery
We do backups so we can recover from system problems. Occasionally a customer asks us to retrieve a file which was accidentally deleted or modified by them, or to re-create the historical state of certain files. We will try to honor such requests when possible. Sometimes files are on the system for too short a time to have been backed up (typically, mailbox files which can change second to second), or requests go beyond the history or scope we keep.

If we determine that we cannot recover the file, or the loss was the result of a system error, then there is no charge.

Complex requests may be subject to additional fees which the customer will be informed of in advance.
