For many years SwitchWorks offered premium anti-spam services using a product called Postini. Google bought Postini in 2007 and discontinued it in 2013.

Yes. If you are not connected to SwitchWorks, then there will be no path for your message to follow in order to reach its intended recipient. You must be logged into SwitchWorks to be able to send e-mail through our Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server.
E-mail signatures are a few lines of text that are added to the end of the e-mail messages that you send. Typically, a signature would consist of information such as your name, position, company name, phone number, and your personal e-mail address. You could also customize your signature by adding a favourite quote or your company’s mission statement. An e-mail signature should be limited to no more than five lines of text.
For specific instructions on how to add a signature to your e-mail messages, please refer to the documentation, ‘help’ files, or ‘read me’ files that came with your e-mail program for details. If you cannot locate these instructions, contact the product vendor for further assistance.
Most email programs have a start-up wizard that walks you through the process, like Outlook Express. Make sure to have your server settings handy to enter into the program.
Incoming Server: mail.mycybernet.net
Outgoing Server: smtp.mycybernet.net
