The DreamHost Webmail is a fairly simple service, made to send and receive emails and attachments. It does not have many of the advanced features you might come to expect from mor proprietary services like Gmail, Outlook, or Apple Mail. That said it is simple to send and receive using most services with the features you are used to by setting up your email client to use this in box. (See DreamHost Email Setup)
As you might expect the Compose button will give you the ability to write and send emails. You have the ability to use Canned or pre written responses, style your message, or attach a file.
File attachments have a maximum allowed file size of 30 MB. However if you upload a file that large most email services won’t allow it to be received. Most email services only allow attachments to be 25 MB or smaller. If you do have large attachments, it’s recommended to use cloud services like Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Apple Cloud or an equivalent service.
You also have options to receive a return receipt, delivery status notification, set priority level, or pick where to save your sent message.
