Email Client Setup =

Our email systems work with a variety of email clients and operating systems. All you have to do is talk to it using standard email protocols. We support IMAP, and POP and we support encrypted secure protocols and SSH tunneling. The basic configuration to RECEIVE email is:

Mail Server -
User - ---- IMPORTANT - User name must include your domain, not just your name.
Password - your password

To set up to send email - use your ISP for sending. You would still use your email for a return address - but their SMTP server to actually send it. So - yes - you are sending through one server and receiving it through another - but it actually works.

The reason for this is that email servers can't be an open relay - otherwise evil spammers would take advantage of it and use servers to send spam.
