Setting up Pop3 Email

IMAP AND POP WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?

In the early days of the internet there was only Pop. However, with the advances of new technology IMAP is quickly taking over and is the preferred option for the majority of users.

IMAP and POP are two very different protocols. The main difference is that IMAP(Internet Messaged Access Protocol) always syncs with the mail server so that any changes you make in your email client (Microsoft Outlook, Thunderbird or other) will instantly appear in your webmail inbox.




How do I set up a mailbox using POP3 on my device or mail client?

Our standard and premium mailboxes can be loaded onto your device or through your mail client either with a POP3 connection or an IMAP connection.


By using a POP3 connection, you will be using one of the most common ways to connect mailboxes to systems, and you will be able to have your email on your phone, your tablet, your alternate web mail system, or your computer.


The way your device or mail client is designed may be different than how other programs or devices work, with different names for the same steps.


Your device or program should have detailed information on how to add and set up mailboxes onto the system, but there are general processes which are the same.


When selecting the account type, select POP3.

Your User Name is your full email address.

Your Password is your mailbox password, which you can find in your eXtend Control Panel.

Your Incoming Mail Server and Outgoing Mail Server are both mail.[domain], where you replace [domain] with your domain name.


So, for example, if your name is Mary and your domain name is thisismydomain.com:


User Name: mary@thisismydomain.com
Password: password
Incoming Mail Server: mail.thisismydomain.com
Outgoing Mail Server: mail.thisismydomain.com

For the Outgoing Mail Server, make certain that you have checked that the server requires authentication


You can also use other things for your user name like sales@, customerservice@ etc.  

Please remember that if you put so much as a dot in the wrong place the system will not recognise your email address.
