You can use either of the following methods to login to your SmarterMail account:
- Login to the VCG Portal at www.myvcg.com/login, click on Website (main navigation link), Site Admin, SmarterMail, and then click on the Launch SmarterMail button. Clicking the button will open a new login window in your browser to access the SmaterMail interface. Please note that the login information may be separate from your VCG Portal login.
- Type the login URL for SmarterMail directly in your browser http://webmail.[yourdomain.com], where [yourdomain.com] is the Internet address of your Website.
Your VCG hosted environment provides access to three different interfaces, myVCG Portal, and two powerful third-party account management interfaces, Website Control Panel, and SmarterMail (email). They are all distinctly different interfaces, and are, in no way, related to one another. To learn more about each of these interfaces, please visit the appropriate section highlighted in the Contents pane to your left.
You use myVCG Portal for:
- VCG account management
- Website Builder
- Signsearch Network profile management
- VCG Resources
- Access to VCG Support portal
- Online Store account management
You use Website Control Panel for:
- Setup and manage FTP accounts and files
- View website visitor statistics
- Monitor disk space and traffic usage
You use SmarterMail for:
- All email account management features
- Calendar management
- Contact management
Please note that your login information can be, and likely is, different for each of these interfaces. That is, this information is stored independently. Any changes you make to your Website Control Panel account information will not be reflected in the Portal or SmarterMail, and vice versa. While VCG can always reset your login information, this is something that we do not store or have access to. If you lose your login information, we will reset it upon request.
This setting allows you to list specific email addresses (such as email@example.com) or domains (such as example.com) that will be exempted from spam filtering. This can prevent mail from friends, business associates, and mailing lists from being blocked and lets the system know that these messages come from a trusted source.
Follow these instructions to add a trusted sender to your SmarterMail account:
- Click the Domain Settings (gears) icon.
- Click on the Spam Filtering tab on the left.
- If you'd like to add a whole domain name (ie: vcgcorporate.com) to your trusted senders, click the pencil icon for Trusted Domains, enter the domain, and click OK. Note: If you want to add more than one domain name, you can do so but just ensure they're on separate lines.
- If you'd like to add a specific email address (ie: firstname.lastname@example.org) to your trusted senders, click the pencil icon for Trusted Email Addresses, enter the email, and click OK. Note: If you want to add more than one email address, you can do so but just ensure they're on separate lines.
- Ensure you click the Save button in the upper left to save your changes.
