How do I set up a mailbox using IMAP on my device or mail client?
By using an IMAP connection, you can have multiple clients simultaneously connected to the same mailbox. For example, you can have email on your phone, your tablet, and your computer, and when you delete a message from your phone, it will also be deleted on your other devices.
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 pieces of information you need to complete the process.
When selecting the account type, select IMAP.
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 Bob and your domain name is thisismydomain.com:
User Name: firstname.lastname@example.org
Incoming Mail Server: mail.thisismydomain.com
Outgoing Mail Server: mail.thisismydomain.com
In the Advanced Features for Outgoing Mail Server, there may be some additional settings that need changing. Please make certain that:
- You are using the default ports (25, 465, 587)
- You are not using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
- You are using Password for Authentication
