Configuring an Email Client
Your control panel comes with all the necessary information to configure an email client to work with your webmail. If you would rather do it manually, then this is the guide for you.
All mail clients will need the following information:
Mail Server Username: (This is your full email address, including the @yourdomain.com)
Incoming Mail Server: (This will be mail.yourdomain.com)
Outgoing Mail Server (This will also be mail.yourdomain.com. Make sure you check the box which says that your outgoing server requires authentication. You do not need to make any other configuration changes.)
You will also need to select a protocol (POP3 or IMAP) to utilize.
POP3 vs. IMAP
The basic difference between POP3 and IMAP is that IMAP will leave a copy of messages on the server when you download them via an email client. POP3 downloads the messages from the server, and does not leave a copy of them. You can still access your mail via the web with POP3, however once you download the message via your mail client, it is no longer on the server. We do recommend using POP3 if you are going to be configuring an email client, as it's easy to forget about the server, which could cause some problems later on with mailbox quotas.
