Email Hosting

  • Secure, business-class email
  • Grow with flexible mailbox limits
  • Easy, unlimited website and email migrations

Don’t pay extra for email

Get free, business-class 10GB mailboxes with all 20i hosting. We aren’t a hosting provider that advertises low prices, but makes up for the shortfall with expensive ‘add-ons’.

Don't pay for extra emailDon't pay for extra email

Whether you go with Shared Web Hosting, Managed WordPress Hosting, premium Managed Cloud Hosting or Reseller Hosting, email is part of the package. All email is stored away from your hosting on optimised servers for additional security and performance. You even get email with our Free Hosting – with no distracting ads.

Access your email anywhere

If you’re looking for secure and ad-free email that won’t let you down, we’ve got you covered. Our email works with all mail clients, including those from Microsoft, Google, Apple and Mozilla.

Our email includes webmail, so you can view your messages anywhere, at any time. It uses IMAP, so you can synchronise your mailboxes across desktop, tablet and mobile.

We understand how important email is to business, so all our email is hosted away from our web hosting on rock-solid servers in our central UK data centres. All email is encrypted in transit using TLS for security and privacy.

mail hosting for your business, easy to manage


First impressions matter. Whether your online business is a major concern or a home-based sideline, it’s important to look professional. So, you should have an email address that matches the domain of your website. It helps to make you appear established and credible.

You can set up email forwarding and autoresponders, so that you can reply when you’re not around. Everything can be managed quickly and easily from our modern control panel, My20i.

Email virus protection

Like our secure web hosting, our email uses the latest techniques to protect you and your recipient.

All emails and forwarders sent and received are subject to advanced antivirus and anti-spam protection.

We use 3 layers of inbound spam and virus scanning:

Easy configurable email spam filters with our hosting

Fully configurable email filters

These filters are controlled easily via the webmail control panel. So certain senders, domains and TLDs can be allow-listed to bypass the content filter entirely. The same goes with deny lists: you can create your own from our control panel.

Spammers not welcome

If you’re using the email accounts included with our shared hosting, you don’t want people to harm your reputation (and ours) by sending out masses of ‘spam’ email.

So we monitor outgoing emails to ensure this doesn’t happen and operate a zero-tolerance spam policy.

Email deliverability

Email delivery

Being certain that an email will arrive at its destination is essential, especially in business. So we work hard to keep our excellent reputation with email service providers - like Microsoft, Google, AOL and BT.

We also improve deliverability using the Domain Name System (DNS). They work to protect you and your email contacts against spam, impersonation, phishing and spoofing.

Sender Policy Framework

The Sender Policy Framework helps to prevent spammers sending messages that appear to come from your domain. We maintain an SPF record in the DNS that’s kept up to date with all IP addresses used to transmit email from our network.

DomainKeys Identified Mail system

The DomainKeys Identified Mail system will apply a digital signature to outgoing email. The recipient’s spam filter can check that the email is authentic by querying the domain in the DNS, and verifying that digital signature.

10 GB Email storage mailboxes

10 GB storage

Each free email account has 10 GB storage. That’s more than enough for most use cases. For example, it would be enough for more than 133,000 average-sized (75 kb) emails! And even our free hosting includes 100 accounts.

However, if you’re regularly receiving very large files - that you never download and delete - you may want to increase the size of your mailbox. You can do this in 10 GB increments, to any size, for 9.99/year for each extra 10 GB storage.

Email stored away from web hosting

Our email services are stored on separate servers to our web hosting. So you won’t ever be affected by slow-down from a website server being busy.

For those with set limits on their storage and compute – like on our Managed Hosting – the amount of email you have stored won’t impinge on your allowances.

FAQs about 20i email services:

Do you have webmail?

Yes. If you don’t want to use any of the ‘big players’ in email web clients, you can use our ‘Stackmail’ email. It has all the same functions as the best email clients. It works perfectly on desktop, mobile and tablet. It even has a bunch of modern themes to personalise it your way!

We have a simple, all-in-one email migration tool that will work with Apple, Microsoft and Android devices. You can see full instructions in this article: How do I migrate emails to 20i?

Through ‘autodiscover’ technology, setting up Outlook is automatic. You can set it up manually if you prefer: Outlook mailbox setup.

This is an automatic process where you download an iOS profile to your device and follow the simple instructions. Like with Outlook, you’re also free to do this in the more traditional way. Full instructions: Set up email on an iPhone.

Our free email has a great spam-free reputation and we want to keep it that way.

It is not intended for mass commercial emails to hundreds of thousands of recipients. We’d recommend that you use a commercial email provider for that.

However, we are very generous with the number of emails we provide: more than enough for normal use. Please see this support article for further details: What are my email sending limits?

Not at all. Your email is kept separate from your web hosting. If your email is busy, it won’t affect your website, and if your website is busy, it won’t affect your email. See the diagram above.

This applies even if you’re using Managed Hosting on 20iCloud, Amazon Web Services or the Google Cloud Platform - where you have limits on web hosting resources. Those dedicated resources will used exclusively by your web hosting, not your free email service.
