Get Your Email Settings
POP3 versus IMAP
Many new versions of email clients and mobile devices make users default to an IMAP configuration. The default Email client that comes with Windows 8 does not even allow a POP set up.

(Pssst.. If you have windows 8, you do not HAVE to use their built-in client)

Our mail servers will handle both POP3 and IMAP. Make sure that you know what you are selecting. Once you are set up, you can't change it without setting up a new account.

POP3 gets email from the mail server and stores it on your local device. If you want to allow multiple devices to get the same email, set your device to leave a copy on the mail server for a limited time after it has been downloaded. Such as 7 days to allow all devices to get the email.

KEEP ALL DEVICES THE SAME TYPE.
WE RECOMMEND USING IMAP AND SSL.

Email Port Configurations

In most email software, there is an Advanced Tab that allows you to change Email Ports.

Older email clients will default to Non-SSL POP3 accounts. We strongly recommend using Secure (SSL) IMAP.


IMAP SSL
Default Incoming Port is 993, and
Default Outgoing Port is 465.


POP3 SSL
Default Incoming Port is 995, and
Default Outgoing Port is 465.



* If you are traveling and your outgoing port is 25, some ISP's may reject email you send. We suggest you change your outgoing email port to 587 or switch to a secure port (see above).
