How can I access my email through a third party mail application?

Each mail client is a little different, the following settings are used in all third party mail applications or mobile devices to send and recieve your mail by using your favourite mail program:

Username: [your email address]
Password: [your email password]
Incoming Server: mail.[yourdomain.com]
  • IMAP Port: 143
  • POP3 Port: 110
Outgoing Server: mail.[yourdomain.com]
  • SMTP Port: 587
Authentication is required for IMAP, POP3, and SMTP.

If you are using IMAP, it is best to find the setting for the IMAP prefix and set it to "INBOX" -- no quotation.

Still deciding between IMAP or POP?  Here is a quick description of the two types of connections:
  • 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.
