Setting Up Your Email

Automated Setup

When you begin your email setup, many programs have an automated set up feature.

Start the automated setup and you will be prompted to enter your email address/password and the mail program will try to detect the settings and prepare everything for you.

If that is successful, you will not need to take any further action and your new email should be ready to go.

Manual Setup

If the automated setup fails, you will need to enter your information manually.

Email & Password

You will be prompted for your email address and password so you will need to enter those.


POP3 means that your mail program will download the emails from the server and the emails will generally be deleted from your server after 14 days.

IMAP means that your emails will be managed exclusively on the server. This option is better if you are accessing your emails from multiple devices.

Incoming Mail Server Settings*

Host:  |  Example:

Pop3 Incoming Port: 995

IMAP Incoming Port: 993

*TLS/SSL Encryption must be chosen for both incoming and outgoing.

Outgoing Mail Server Settings*

Host: | Example:

SMTP Outgoing Port: 465

*TLS/SSL Encryption must be chosen for both incoming and outgoing.

If you have entered all of these settings correctly, your email should be configured successfully.
