  • Select Account type. If you want to keep copies of messages on the server, select the IMAP option (Recommended). If you do not want to keep any messages on the server, select the POP3 option.
    • The Incoming server is 'mail. your domain' example mail.domain.tld with port 993 with SSL and Normal Password set for authentication.
    • The Outgoing server is 'mail. your domain' example mail.domain.tld with port 465 with SSL and Normal Password set for authentication.
    • Your Username for both incoming and outgoing is your email address. Example:
  • Go to the Outgoing Server tab and check the box that says My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication and ensure Use same settings as my incoming mail server is selected underneath that.


  • Now, go to the Advanced tab and change the Outgoing server (SMTP) port to 465 and select SSL for the preferred type of encryption. Then, simply click OK.
