Setting up an Email Program POP3/IMAP

The instructions listed below are for the general setup of various email clients and cannot be guaranteed to work with every email client. The following configuration settings are appropriate for third party email clients such as Outlook Eudora, iPad, etc.

When using the example below, be sure to replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain name. 

Your/Display name: anything you want
Email address: enter the full address (name@yourdomain.com)

Type of connection: POP3 or IMAP (what is the difference?)

Incoming mail server: mail.yourdomain.com
Outgoing mail server: mail.yourdomain.com
Outgoing mail server does require authentication.

Incoming mail port: 110 for POP3, 143 for IMAP
Outgoing mail port: 25 (If 25 does not work, try 26, as some ISPs block port 25)

Note: For Comcast/Xfinity Internet customers, port 587 is available for use as ports 25 and 26 are blocked on their network.

No SSL boxes should be checked (see note below).

Username/Account name: must be the full email address (name@yourdomain.com). Sometimes this setting won't work until you replace the @ with a + in the username.

Password: the email password. Do NOT use SPA (secure password authentication).
