Email Set Up Information Print

  • 4

Different devices and email apps have their own way of adding new email accounts but they all require the same information.

If possible you should use the Secure settings below and we recommend your use IMAP as this keeps your email centralised on your hosting account.

Secure SSL/TLS Settings (Recommended)
Username: Use your complete email address
Password: Use the email account’s password.
Incoming Server: mail.<your.domain.name>
  • IMAP Port: 993
  •  
  • POP3 Port: 995
Outgoing Server: mail.<your.domain.name>
  • SMTP Port: 465
IMAP, POP3, and SMTP require authentication.
Non-SSL Settings (NOT Recommended)
Username: Use your complete email address
Password: Use the email account’s password.
Incoming Server: mail.<your.domain.name>
  • IMAP Port: 143
  •  
  • POP3 Port: 110
Outgoing Server: mail.<your.domain.name>
  • SMTP Port: 587
IMAP, POP3, and SMTP require authentication.
 

Information in italics above needs to be replaced with your own  information.

Notes:

  • IMAP email access coordinates between the server and your mail application. Messages that have been read/deleted/replied to will show up as such, both on the server and in the mail application.
  • POP3 does not coordinate with the server. Messages marked as read/deleted/replied to in the mail application will not show up as such on the server. This means that future mail downloads with POP3 will show all messages as unread.
  • Outgoing mail is sent using SMTP.
  • We recommend using POP3 over SSL/TLS or IMAP over SSL/TLS since they provide increased security for your interactions with the remote mail server.
