How do I configure my email client?

When you access an email account through a desktop email application such as “Microsoft Outlook 2000® for Windows®”, the email application will require specific information about your email account. You can use the auto-configure options when you create the email for your domain,  these can be found by clicking the More drop-down button and choosing Configure Mail Client,  there are files you can use to attempt to automatically configure your email application therein. If the available options are not compatible with your application, you will need to use the Manual Settings information.


Manual Settings

If you do not see an auto-configuration script for your client in the list above, you can manually configure your mail client using the settings below:

Secure SSL/TLS Settings
Password: Use the email account’s password.
* Incoming Server:
  • IMAP Port: 993
  • POP3 Port: 995
* Outgoing Server:
  • SMTP Port: 465
Authentication is required for IMAP, POP3, and SMTP.
* is your domain name.

Non-SSL Settings
Password: Use the email account’s password.
* Incoming Server:
  • IMAP Port: 143
  • POP3 Port: 110
* Outgoing Server:
  • SMTP Port: 587
Authentication is required for IMAP, POP3, and SMTP.

* is the domain part of the email address you are configuring,  so it's what appears after the @,  eg:

Further 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 SSL/TLS for an IMAP or POP3 connection since they provide increased security for your interactions with the remote mail server.
  • If you're configuring a mobile device and need help configuring the device for email we suggest taking this document to the provider of your mobile device and having them help you configure it,  some mobile providers can access your device remotely and configure the email if you send them the link to this page to a representative of the provider.  
  • Unfortunately, there are too many device types and mail clients for us to provide detailed knowledge base articles for each one,  however, we can assist if required,  please call us via the number on our contact page.
