Your Email Client
Your Virtual Server comes with your own private POP, IMAP, and SMTP servers for sending and receiving email.
POP allows you to download email from the Virtual Server to your own computer. IMAP does the same, but it also allows you to create folders on the Virtual Server itself and save email in the folders you create.
There are numerous email clients (programs) available that support POP, or both POP and IMAP. Configuring the typical email client is generally a simple process. Here is the information you'll most likely need:
For Incoming Mail (POP or IMAP)
POP is the most popular method and our recommendation.
pop.yourdomain.comUsername: you set this when setting up user accounts
Optional Port #: 110
For Outgoing Mail
SMTP Server type:
smtp.yourdomain.comOptional Port #: 5190
(You may be required to use this port number if your ISP places a block on port 25.)
Real name: whichever name you want to identify you in your emails (ex. Fantastic Joe)
Email address/Return address: your email alias
