Users of the mail system should be aware that there can be no guarantees given concerning the privacy of dispatched e-mail. Misaddressed or poorly addressed mail may be delivered to the wrong person or be handled by an unknown postmaster at another site.
The National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Network Operations Centre, gives no undertaking to guarantee the privacy of e-mail.
In order to protect the service, the administrators of the Mail service reserve the right to intercept e-mail messages and examine any e-mail communications at any time, in the course of performing their duties as administrators of the Mail service.
By clicking on "I agree", you claim to fully understand and agree to the Terms of Service as well as the statements above.
In order to protect the services from abuse, the following automatic constraints are enforced:
All outgoing email is disallowed by default, even on accounts where the email address has been verified, in an effort to combat spam. Outgoing email, either via the Webmail or the Submission (SMTP) service, is enabled on a per account basis, on request.
Since excessively large messages can block the system, there is a general limitation on the size of all the mail messages which is fixed at: 20 MB. Messages received with a size greater than 20 MB will be rejected. Messages sent with a size greater than 20 MB will be rejected and will not be sent.
The default quota for folders on the Central Mail Servers is set to: 100 MB. A warning message is issued when the limit is reached or near to be reached.
You are required to authenticate with your credentials (username/password) to the SMTP service in order to send any email. The use of encryption is also enforced.
The maximum number of recipients per email is restricted to: 100 recipients.
When using our SMTP service, you are only allowed to use the following email addresses as the email "From:" (sender) addresses:
- The email address that you provided upon registration, assuming that it has been verified.
- The email address provided by our system; this follows the form firstname.lastname@example.org.
When sending email through our servers, you are only allowed to use the name you provided during signup, as your name in the From: header (RFC2822 address comment), or an empty string. Any other comment in the From: header will be replaced with the one you provided during signup, and you will receive notification via email that the correction has taken place.
To assist you with not exceeding the above restrictions, the servers will provide meaningful and helpful error messages when an action is not allowed.
