EONI wants you to have the safest and most secure experience with your eoni.com email service. This article outlines things you should know to be as safe and secure as possible.

EONI will never send you an email to tell you to click a link to activate your email, reset your account, update something, release held messages or keep your email account working.
Other signs an email claiming to be from EONI is suspicious:

  • the message was found in your spam folder
  • the From: address may say their name is something official or sounding important from EONI but the actual From: address does not end in eoni.com

If you have any doubt never take action on emails like this. Just contact us first at 541-962-7873 or forward the email to support@eoni.com
If you mistakenly did click something you are now questioning if it was the right thing to do, please contact us immediately so we can start by changing your password. You will likely find emails in your inbox or your spam folder that are trying very carefully to appear to be authentic emails from EONI instructing you to take action that may cause considerable problems for you.

EONI supports and highly recommends encryption for all communications between your device and the eoni.com email server. Using plain text or unencrypted methods are not recommended and may be disabled in the future.

The eoni.com email server attempts to encrypt all communications between our server and all other servers we send to or receive from.

Your email account can be accessed using the built in email/mail apps on various mobile devices. We recommend for these devices you always use IMAP to retrieve your email. For Android devices use the settings here for manual setup. For Apple devices click here for automatic setup.

If you are using a web browser such as Chrome or Firefox to access your email we call this method webmail. We do not recommend you use webmail on your mobile devices. The mail apps on your mobile devices are usually a much faster and easier experience.

Some settings such as spam filter settings, setting up email forwarding and choosing which countries you can access your email account from are all in webmail settings.
