Now that you have an email account, you can access and manage your email mailbox by setting up an email client on your desktop or mobile device. This article explains what configuration settings you should use and links to our setup guides for the most common email clients.
Email Application Settings
Your email application can be set up to retrieve emails from the email server using two different protocols: IMAP or POP. The protocol you’ll use mostly depends on the number of devices you’ll use to access your email.
IMAP. For incoming mail, this is for people who access their email on multiple devices or if multiple users access the same account. When you read, reply, delete, forward, or otherwise manage your email, the changes are made on the server and sync with your webmail and other IMAP-connected email clients.
POP. Use POP to download and remove your email from the server and store them on your device. It’s a great option if you want to manage your email through one main interface, frequently manage your email offline, or need more storage space than your mail server allows. Do not use POP if you want to access your email from multiple devices.
Your outgoing mail server uses SMTP settings. SMTP, which stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, is a set of communication guidelines that allow the software to transmit email over the Internet. Most email software is designed to use SMTP for communication purposes when sending an email that only works for outgoing messages.
