With over 13 years of experience in IT support and email systems integration, Databias has helped many South African businesses set up professional email and web hosting.

The corporate email industry has in the past been largely dominated by Microsoft and it's Exchange messaging platform. Exchange became available to the general public almost a decade ago thanks to a change in licensing which enabled technical service providers to license Exchange on a per mailbox basis. Databias reliably operated it's Hosted Exchange platform for 7 years, supporting hundreds of companies and thousands of mailboxes. We've learnt that customer service is the key to being a successful Micrsoft reseller.

In 2011 Microsoft again introduced another change in the email market with the launch of the 365 platform, which offers Microsoft's products to companies and the general public on a pay as you go basis. We've learnt that giving customers tools to manage their digital assets is another key to becoming a successful reseller.

Rest assured that we will always endeavour to keep our prices as low as possible whilst continuing to offer a stable platform and knowledgeable, dedicated support.

Phishing attacks are real.

Fraudster email attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated – often appearing to be sent from a business, organization, or individual the victim regularly communicates with. Signs to look for your account may have been compromised include:

  • Not receiving new emails you are expecting
  • Emails in your sent folder were not sent by you
  • An Out of Office message has been turned on that you did not set up
If you think you may have fallen victim to a scam, immediately contact your IT support team / support@databias.co.za
  • Reset your user username and password
  • Disable any forwarding rules or rules that move messages to the deleted folder
  • Screen your computer and network for malware
