BarNet FAQ Section
If you're running windows, please check the following:
If you're using MacOS, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
For webbrowsing, make sure that you are using a webproxy. For Netscape Navigator and Mozilla, go to Edit, Preferences, Advanced, Proxies. For Internet Explorer users, go to Tools, Internet Options, Connections, LAN settings and Proxy Server. The proxy you have to use is proxy.yourdomain on port 8080. For example proxy.stjames.net.au if your email address is email@example.com.Make sure you don't configure your browser to use a Socks proxy. BarNet doesn't have a socks proxy, you can't connect to it.
If it is the BarNet mailserver you are trying to connect to, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If it is a different mailserver you are trying to connect to (i.e. not the BarNet mailserver), you're out of luck. We don't allow direct access to external mailservers, all mail send from the BarNet network has to go through our mailservers. Why? Because our mailservers have a mail-virusscanner which check all incoming and outgoing email for viruses. Safety first. See the BarNet website for an overview of the viruses caught in the last week.
In theory BarNet doesn't block traffic, except in some exceptional cases:
If this happens when you're on the BarNet network, please contact email@example.com for further investigation.
If this happens when you're not on the BarNet network, you should enable SMTP authentication in your mailreader. See the Email section of the FAQ on how to enable this.
