Support area for web hosting: Configure the mail client
Use the information below to configure the mail client of your choice to send and receive email for the different email accounts you have created. Replace the text in italics with your specific account/email information. Refer to the notes on the right for further guidance. If you encounter problems, refer to the Help Documentation for your email client.
|Email/Reply to address:
||email@example.com (or .edu, .org, etc.)
|Incoming (POP3) mail server:
||pop.mydomain.com (or .edu, .org, etc.)
(If you would like to access your mail via an IMAP client, you will need to use imap.mydomain as the IMAP server)
||firstname.lastname@example.org (If you are using a mail client, such as Netscape, that does not allow you to use the "@" symbol in the User/Account name field, you may substitute the "@" in your address with the "_" character. For example: username_mydomain)
|| the password you chose for that email address
||Change port from 25 to 587
|Outgoing (SMTP) mail server:
||You should use the outgoing mail server of your ISP (for example: smtp.cox.net or smtp.bellsouth.net) or if your ISP does not provide an outgoing mail server, you may use smtp.yourdomain.com.
For extra guidance, we have created tutorials to help you configure your mail client to send and receive email.
Select the email program you are using for instructions to modify the server settings.
