Outlook / Eudora / Thunderbird / Mac / iPad / Phone Client Settings

We have video guides on most emails clients in Video Tutorial Section

Mac Clients: Please refer to the related article for Mac Mail Setup.

Warning for iPad users: If you have already setup your email incorrectly, you cannot simply update the settings to be correct. Instead, you need to fully delete the account from the iPad, perform a hard reset, and recreate the entire account with the proper settings.

Email settings for any Email Client (Outlook, Eudora, iPad, etc.):

Be sure to replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain name.

Your/Display name: anything you want
Email address: enter the full address (name@yourdomain.com)

Type of connection: POP3 or IMAP

Incoming mail server: mail.yourdomain.com
Outgoing mail server: mail.yourdomain.com
Outgoing mail server does require authentication.

Incoming mail port: 110 for POP3, 143 for IMAP
Outgoing mail port: 25 (If 25 or 2525 does not work, try 26 or 587, as some ISPs block port 25).

** No SSL boxes should be checked **
Note: If you want a secure connection using SSL, please refer to the related article.

Username/Account name: must be the full email address (name@yourdomain.com).
Sometimes this setting won't work until you replace the @ with a + in the username (name+yourdomain.com).

Password: the email password. Do NOT use SPA (secure password authentication).
