Be sure to replace with YOUR actual domain name.

Your/Display name: anything you want

Type of connection: POP3 or IMAP. We STRONGLY recommend POP3. Emails in IMAP stay on the server by default, which takes up server space, and will eventually fill up, thus disabling your email account. This is bad, which is why we HIGHLY discourage IMAP, and highly recommend POP3.

Please follow these steps and view the images below to setup your email account:

  • Incoming POP3 port: 995, although 110 can sometimes work as well.
  • Outgoing SMTP port: 587, although 465 can sometimes work as well.
  • Change the Incoming and Outgoing Encrypted Connections to TLS or SSL.
  • In Outgoing Server settings, there should be an option for My Outgoing Server (SMTP) Requires Authentication.
  • Make sure it is checked and the option of Use Same Settings as Incoming Server is also checked.

You should be able to go into Accounts (sometimes labeled “Preferences”), then select your email account, look for Outgoing server settings (sometimes labeled SMTP). You may need to find settings such as Advanced Settings or Server Settings. Once the new info has been added, click OK where necessary.

Try to Send/Receive email. If it still doesn’t work, try closing and then restarting your email program. Keep in mind that incorrectly trying to login to our server three times may trigger our servers to block your IP address, which will prevent any email from being sent or received, even IF your email settings are correct. You can test this by trying to access your website in a browser. If your website fails to display properly, then your IP may have been blocked. If so, go to the link below and email us your IP address so we can remove it from our blocked list.

If you cannot get your email to work, it could be an issue with your local Internet Service Provider. You can use Webmail in the meantime, which can always be accessed via
