Basic Email Settings

While each client is different in its layout and verbiage, there is still a basic set of information that the email client will need. Below is how to get your email settings:

Non SSL email settings
The following settings are the non Secure settings. Use this only if you cannot use the SSL settings. Otherwise, you will want to use the SSL setup. Note that you will need to change "YOURDOMAIN.ext" to your domain name.

Incoming Server: mail.YOURDOMAIN.ext
Outgoing Server: mail.YOURDOMAIN.ext
Username: Your full e-mail address
Password: Your e-mail account password
Incoming Port: POP3 110 or IMAP 143
Outgoing Mail server (SMTP) Port: 587
SSL: NO
SMTP Authentication Required
Secure Authentication or SPA needs to be turned off

SSL email settings
Below is an example of the recommended Secure settings. The SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol is for connecting to your server securely to prevent network "snoopers" from seeing your data over the network connction.

Incoming Server: srv.serverh2.com
Outgoing Server: srv.serverh2.com
Username: Your full e-mail address
Password: Your e-mail account password
Incoming Port: POP3 995 or IMAP 993
Outgoing Mail server (SMTP) Port: 465
SSL: YES
SMTP Authentication Required
Secure Authentication or SPA needs to be turned off

Accessing your email through Webmail
Webmail allows you to check your email from within your browser, such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla FireFox, or Safari. A big advantage to using Webmail is that you do not need to configure any settings. You can simply log into webmail (www..YOURDOMAIN.ext/webmail) and begin using it. Another advantage is that your information is stored on the server so it can be accessed from any computer you're logging in from.
