Hi!

Without any more information than you posted, I would suggest that you try a gmail account. Go to www.gmail.com and set it up. It is free from the folks at Google.

Please let me know if this helps, and provide a rating if you see fit.

Good luck,

Bob

I need to fix all my accounts to have the same E-Mail address and password.


Log on to each of your accounts and change your email and password. There is no way to do it all in one shot, since companies do not share their users' email and password.

Tips to Find Unauthorized Activity on Your Email Account


Do you suspect that your email account is under attack? Do you want to maintain total security of your email account and make it 100% hack proof? Well, Some times our email account might have got hacked and we may not be aware of that. We may believe that our email account is safe, but in reality our private and confidential information may be falling into the hands of a third person.
Here are some signs of unauthorized activity on an email account.
1. Your new emails are marked as Read even if you’ve not read them.
2. Your emails are moved to Trash or even permanently deleted without your notice.
3. Your emails are being forwarded to a third party email address (check your settings->forwarding).
4. Your secondary email address is changed.
If you come across any of the above activities on your email account, then it is a clear indication that your email account is hacked.
Additional Security Features in Gmailto ensure the Safety of your Account
Gmail provides an additional security feature to protect your email account through the means of IP address logging. That is, Gmail records your IP addressevery time you login to your Gmail account. So, if a third party getsaccess to your account then even his/her IP is also recorded. To see alist of recordedIP address, scroll down to the bottom of your Gmail account and you’ll see something like this.

You can see from the above figure that Gmail shows the IP address of last login (last account activity). You can click on Details to see the IP address of your last 5 activities. If you find that the IP listed in the logs doesn’t belong to you, then you can suspect unauthorized activity.
Steps to be carried out to stop unauthorized activity on your email account
If you feel/suspect that your account is hacked then you must immediately take the actions mentioned below
1. Change your Password
2. Change your security question.
2. Remove any third party email address (if any) to which your account is set to forward emails.
3. Make sure that you can access the email account of your secondary email address.
4. Also change you secondary email password and security question.
This ensures that your account is safe from future attacks.

I am totally frustrated...I have a gmail account that I set up months ago and google sent me a tool that let me set in up using google to access all my info then for protection I set up a two step ver


Go into your Google account and make sure you have it set up correctly.
You will need to access your Gmail account. If you've forgotten the password than simply click "forgot password" and you will be prompted to type the email account you used to set up your Google account. The temporary password will be sent to that other email account.

recovery by email:
https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/183726
Recovery email address You don't have to provide a recovery email address, but we strongly encourage you to. Once you've started using Google as a signed-in user, we'll use your recovery email address to communicate with you under the following circumstances:
  • We need to confirm your username after you create an address
  • You can't sign in to Google
  • You've forgotten your password
  • You're about to run out of storage space
  • We need to alert you to any unusual activity involving your address
If you use Gmail, you may have added a recovery email address to your account when you first signed up. If you don't use Gmail, your password recovery address is the email address you used to sign up for your account (for example:myusername@yahoo.com)
To change or add a recovery address:
  1. Go to your Google Account Settings page.
  2. Scroll down to the "Signing in" box.
  3. Click Recovery email.
  4. Add your recovery email address.
  5. Click Done.
Your recovery address should be an email address that you use regularly.


recovery by phone:
https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/183728

Having a mobile phone number on your account is one of the easiest and most reliable ways to help keep your account safe and ensure that you can get back into your account if your account is taken over or you forget your password. Your mobile phone is a more secure identification method than your recovery email address or a security question because, unlike the other two, you have physical possession of your mobile phone.
Hackers target accounts without phones because they're easier targets. Add a phone and join hundreds of millions of other Google users who have helped stop hackers in their tracks.

To add a recovery phone number to your account:

  1. Go to your Google Account Settings page
  2. In the Personal info section, click Phone.
  3. In the Recovery phone section, click to add a recovery phone number if you don't have one yet.

Ways we will use your mobile phone number

We'll only use your mobile phone number to ensure the security of your account. Here are some ways we'll use it:
  • To challenge people when they try to take ownership of your account
  • To send you a verification code so you can get into your account if you ever lose access
  • To provide an alternate way for you to verify that you own an account
  • To help prevent people from getting into your account by guessing the answer to your security question
  • Optional: To alert you to possible threats to your account's security (for example, when your password is changed)

Ways we won't use your mobile phone number

Unless you make a specific request, we won't use your mobile phone number for anything other than protecting your account. For example, unless you tell us to, we'll never:
  • Sell your phone number to other companies or organizations
  • Call you for marketing purposes
  • Publish your phone number online

What type of phone you should use

You should use a mobile phone number so that you always have access to it. It's important that you can receive security alerts as soon as possible so that you can help keep your account safe.

What would be our best option for e-mail backup? We're a small engineering firm (4 employees total) with a lot of e-mails (around 15 GB each and growing). We currently use Outlook with GoDaddy...


Go Daddy hosting is a safe bet, if they do a daily back-up . And you can protect yourself bu performing a back locally.
Is there growth projected in the near future, to balance out the cost of a server?

I did it with my company, I bought an in-house server where I could best manage the email accounts. An in-house server can be a computer dedicated for email hosting. Then I found it best to move my server to a "server farm" A server farm or server cluster is a collection of computer servers usually maintained by an enterprise to accomplish server needs far beyond the capability of individual companies. They supply the Static IP and cooling and power backup for the server.
Your local Server Farm may have email hosting services too.

Pros--- you can manage your accounts,and quickly repair the issues. You would not have to depend on contacting someone at a remote location in a different city or country (which may cost you time and monies) to correct the issues.
Cons- Cost of computer, Email hosting software, static IP from ISP provider and IT person.And if you are not proactive as far as security and back-ups are concerned, you can lose time and money.

My email password was hacked how do i log in to my account


If your email account password has been hacked or is apparently hacked and you are the legitimate owner of that account then you should immediately dig out the contact information of the customer care department of the online company your email account belongs to (like famous online companies that provide email services hotmail.com and Yahoo.com).
Get in touch with a LIVE customer care representative preferably on a phone line. You can search your email company's customer care phone contacts on Google.com. The email company's customer care representatives are there and will help you to get your email account back.

Good Luck!
