Using non-Shaw email accounts

Shaw Business only supports and troubleshoots delivery from @shaw.ca or Shaw Hosting email addresses. The outgoing delivery of non-Shaw email accounts cannot be guaranteed through Shaw SMTP servers as we have no ability verify the sender's authenticity.

  • These unauthenticated attempts can result in sending limits, failed delivery without failure notifications, or emails tagged as suspicious/junk by the recipient’s mail server. Unauthenticated email sending is unreliable, so it is not recommended and not supported.

Non Shaw Emails

  • For third-party hosted domains, contact the provider. Virtually every email hosting service these days are happy to give you the authenticated outbound SMTP settings to use for their email service. This will improve the reliability of your email getting to the recipients quickly and with less chance of being tagged as junk/spam.
  • If you use an on-site mail server for your own domain it will be important to maintain your own outbound mail settings, spam filtration and security. Shaw Business won’t assist in maintaining your on-site mail server. Consulting an IT person may be needed for the configuration, security and patching of your on-site server.
    • If you have a static IP, Shaw Business will assist with Creating PTR Records (sometimes known as reverse DNS). This will help point back to your email server for authentication purposes.
