SpamTitan Migration

On Saturday January 22nd, 2022 we will be migrating SpamTitan from Amsterdam 2 to Amsterdam 1. This is part of our overall growth strategy, focusing on Amsterdam 1 and UK 1.

For a short period of time, incoming email delivery will be delayed. Depending on sending server settings, emails sent during this period should be held and delivered again when normal service resumes.

We have conducted a review of all affected customer MX and SPF records – only a handful reference the IP address directly and we will be in touch with customers directly to resolve this where we do not have access to do so ourselves.

We will update this post closer to the time with more specific timescales and information.

We are sorry for any inconvenience. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to drop us an email to support@anu.net.

How to use Roundcube Calendars

All Anu Hosted Email accounts include Roundcube Webmail. Roundcube allows you to send and receive email via your browser with no additional software or configuration required. It also includes advanced calendar functionality with the ability to share calendars and sync to desktop and mobile devices.

To get started, login to your email account at https://roundcube.anu.net.

Once you are logged in, click on Calendar in the top right of your webmail dashboard. See screenshot below.

This is where you can access your calendar in Roundcube. To add an event, just click inside the calendar area and a new event form will open up.

If you want to set up a shared calendar, click on the small + sign (see screenshot). Once you clicked on the button, it will provide you 2 options, either “Create a calendar” or “Add shared calendar”.

If you want to choose to create a calendar, it will open a form with tabs to configure the details (Summary, Share Calendar, Publish Calendar, Sync Calendar and Import/Export).

Summary tab – It will ask your for the Calendar name, Description, Background color, Text Color and Default Event visibility which gives you 2 options either private or public.

Share Calendar tab – This is where you want to share your calendar and you will be asked for the email addresses of the users that you want to share your calendar to.

Publish Calendar tab – This is where you can share your calendar publicly without inviting the users so anyone that has the link will be able to view your calendar. Normally if you are creating the calendar this option will ask you to create the link first before you can share it to public.

Sync Calendar tab – This is where CalDav connection is set. It will ask you for the Display name, Password, Either you want it on a read only mode or shared.

You may also want to follow the guide on the link below in creating CalDav connections:

If you want to sync your calendar with your iPhone or iPad, follow this guide:

The last tab is Import/Export tab where Roundcube allows you to import events that are stored locally. You can also do the other way around which is exporting your calendar events.

The last option from the + button is the Add shared Calendar. This option is used to scan available shared calendar, domain wide. If none is detected then it will tell you that “There are no shared calendars you can add.”.

If you are having any problems following this guide, you can always reach out to us either via live chat (click the icon in the bottom right of this window) or send us an email and we will be happy to assist.
