In a post on Reddit on Tuesday, a user on the Seo network, an email service, explained that it is an email gateway and is not actually connected to the internet.
“It’s an email forwarding service, which means we’re not really connected to a cloud provider,” the user wrote.
“You can send emails to any email address on our network, and we’ll respond.”
The post also pointed out that, while the email gateway itself does not connect to the Internet, the user could also use a third-party email service that provides the same functionality, such as Google Mail.
“We’re not affiliated with Google Mail and we can’t give you Google Mail, but if you’re sending emails to the address on the address bar of our email client, we’ll reply,” the Reddit user wrote, without providing any further details.
The post on reddit from Seo user explains that they are able to connect to their email services by connecting to a third party service that uses Seo’s servers.
“In the case of Google Mail or Gmail, this means that your email is actually going to the server of the email service,” the Seopro user wrote on the Reddit thread.
“The problem is that the Gmail service only has one connection to the email provider at the moment.
In the case that your Google Mail is also on the same IP address as our Seo, then you’ll be able to send emails from Gmail to Seo without having to use Gmail.”
While Google’s Gmail service is currently being phased out in favour of its own email service in the US, Google’s Seo service is not currently available in the UK.
Google is planning to roll out a new Gmail service in 2019, but this will only be available for the US and Canada.
In a statement, Seo said that the company was “actively exploring other options”.
