Setting Up Email

You Are HERE: :Home/Email, Hosting, Tutorials, Website Resources/Setting Up Email

Here are the settings that are common to all email clients (software)

Be sure to substitute your domain name where it says “yourdomain.”  

POP3 and SMTP Server mail.yourdomain.com
Username Your FULL email address
Password Must be a strong password, otherwise the system will reject it
SMTP Requires Authentication Yes, use same login as POP3
SMTP Port Number 26
POP3 Port Number 110
Login with secure connection No

This will work as an IMAP account, though if you don’t know what that is, you can safely ignore this.

If these settings don’t work, try one of the alternate settings that follows.
