how do I set up my email client?  Print this Article

If you are using Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird, your settings for your email are as follows:

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

or

Non-SSL Settings
Username: email@domain.com
Password: Use the email account’s password.
Incoming Server: mail.domain.com
IMAP Port: 143
POP3 Port: 110
Outgoing Server: mail.domain.com
SMTP Port: 25
Authentication is required for IMAP, POP3, and SMTP.

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.
