General IMAP set-up

In web mail, the general set-up for an email program can be found under the Help section, "Check email with Outlook or other software."

Most other email software supports IMAP, POP and SMTP standards. Configure the following in your email software:

Username: (The username is your full email address)
Password - This is the same password that you use to login to your web-based email account.
Incoming Mail Server:
Outgoing Mail Server:
Outgoing Mail Server Port: 587 (Many ISPs have disabled port 25 for outbound mail.)
SMTP Authentication: Set the email authentication if an option exists. Most programs do not automatically authenticate.

To learn more about your email program, check its online help documentation or manual.
For more specific tutorials on how to set-up a particular program, please see our Tutorial Guides section on our main site.
