Domain email settings
If you have a web hosting account with us, these instructions show you how to configure your email client to send and receive mail. In the following examples, substitute your domain name in place of "your-domain.org".
Protocol: POP3 or IMAP Server: your-domain.org User: email@example.com Pass: xxxxxxxx
For a secure, encrypted connection to the server, turn on SSL, and change the server name to the host name of the server:
Protocol: POP3 Server: vhosts2.main.nc.us Port: 995 Security: SSL Use secure authentication/Password authentication: No Protocol: IMAP Server: vhosts2.main.nc.us Port: 993 Security: SSL Use secure authentication/Password authentication: No
The server name depends on what server your domain is hosted on. It's printed on your domain reference letter. You can find out the server name by accessing the control panel redirect in a web browser. Enter the following address in a web browser, and see what server you get redirected to (substitute your domain name in place of "your-domain.org"):
Protocol: SMTP Server: smtp-auth.main.nc.us Port: 2500 (465 for SSL) Authentication: yes User: firstname.lastname@example.org Pass: xxxxxxxx
Note that you probably won't be able to send mail through the default SMTP port of 25. Most ISPs block port 25 to stop spam.
Authentication is required to send mail through our server. The email address you use to log in must first be created in the control panel for your domain.
