The telephones which Claranet SOHO provide as part of their Hosted Voice solutions are purchased with a 12 month warranty, so if your telephone has a fault within the initial 12 months, you can contact our support team who will arrange for it to be replaced.
However, if the telephone develops a fault outside of the initial 12 months, you would need to purchase a replacement unit from Claranet SOHO.
One of the many questions our support team receive each week is about the difference between POP and IMAP and which they think is the better option. The two different types of mail protocols both have advantages and disadvantages. It just depends which email is suited more to you and your business.
Deciding which works better for your business can sometimes be an overwhelming choice to make if you’re not a technical expert. The points listed below should help you choose the right mail server for you and explain the main differences between the two.
If you have a ClaraHost hosting package with us you do have the ability to connect to your mailboxes via both POP and IMAP. By default, IMAP for your domain is disabled, if you want to enable this feature you will need to contact our support team. Once enabled, you can use the server imap.clara.net in your mail client with port 143 or with SSL on port 993.
We actively Monitor EFM and Leased Line connections 24/7. If we notice that your connection is being intermittent or dropping, we will contact your "on site" contact to do some initial testing on the Hardware so that you can continue to receive the service we promise to you.
If the initial testing is not successful, we will run further diagnostics on the service. However, if we notice that there is an issue then we will aim to rectify the problem within our SLA for your specific service.

You are able to modify the mailbox sizes accordingly to your personal preference. You can increase/decrease the size of the mailbox as required up to a maximum size of 2000MB per mailbox from the allocated size limit you have for your package.
Please note: If you have a @clara.co.uk or @clara.net email address, then unfortunately the mailbox size cannot be changed.
