Email is a digital mechanism for exchanging the messages through Internet. The emails are transmitted between the sender and the receiver. Email messages are relayed through email servers that are provided by all Internet Service Providers (ISP).
The configuration of Email Client:
The Email Client Configuration includes the information such as the protocol to connect, incoming/outgoing ports and server names for enabling secure connections. The Email configuration settings can be done manually by setting up the incoming and outgoing server, port numbers for IMAP, POP3, and SMTP.
Log in to the email account associated with the client and use the full email address for the username. For example, firstname.lastname@example.org. Enter the email account’s password.
Incoming and Outgoing Mail Server:
For the incoming and outgoing mail server, use the server’s hostname or your domain that points to the mail server. For example, use mail.domainname.com
It is always recommended to use IMAP protocol over POP3 protocol because IMAP possesses all the advantages of POP3 and none of its disadvantages. The port number for IMAP is 993, POP3 port number is 995, and for SMTP use 587.
The port number for IMAP is 993, for POP3 use 995, and for SMTP use 587.
When specifying the settings for the incoming and outgoing server, select SSL/TLS for the incoming mail server and for the outgoing mail server, select STARTTLS.
