Manual Email Settings

You can manually configure your mail client using the settings below:

Secure SSL/TLS Settings -Recommended
Username: IE: you@yourdomain.com
Password: Use the email account's password.
Incoming Server:
  • yourdomain.com
  • IMAP Port: 993
  • POP3 Port: 995
Outgoing Server:
  • yourdomain.com
  • SMTP Port: 465
Authentication is required for IMAP, POP3, and SMTP.

Non-SSL Settings -NOT Recommended
Username: you@yourdomain.com
Password: Use the email account's 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.


  • 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.
  • We recommend using POP3 with SSL/TLS or IMAP with SSL/TLS since they provide increased security for your interactions with the remote mail server.
  • What's My Password? (Client Area, Billing, cPanel, Email)
