Configuring Outlook and other email clients on Windows hosting?

Standard POP3 Configuration:

Account Type: POP3
Incoming Mail Server: <use server hostname or IP address>
Outgoing Mail Server: <use server hostname or IP address>

In Outlook in "More Settings", make sure SMTP requires authentication is checked.

As for ports, POP3 is on 110 and SMTP is available on 25.


For SSL connections (recommended):

Incoming Mail Server: <use server hostname or IP address>
Outgoing Mail Server: <use server hostname or IP address>

In Outlook in "More Settings", make sure SMTP requires authentication is checked.

IMAP SSL port: 993
POP3 SSL port: 995
SMTP SSL port: 465

Make sure "Use SSL" is enabled for those port settings.


For Outlook, etc., note:
 
Make sure Secure Password Authentication (SPA) is disabled.
 
Make sure "My server requires authentication" is checked and your email account information is entered.
 
Your username will be the full email address for the email account you are connecting to (i.e. you@yourdomain.com).
