Email System Setup on Computer

Every email program (Outlook, Windows Live, Thunderbird, Airmail, etc) is different on how they set up email service, but they ask all the same questions. Here are all the answers that you need.

  • both IMAP & POP3 work
  • for incoming
  • for outgoing
  • your username is your email address
  • NO on SSL for incoming & outgoing *
  • leave incoming server port to the default
  • change the outgoing server port to 587


Here are more details

SSL or no SSL

If you turn on SSL, you should use a different incoming and outgoing mail server:

You should know that SSL doesn’t mean your email is encrypted. Your email is transported across 3 legs:

  1. Your device to our email server
  2. Our server to their email server
  3. Their email server to their device

Messages sent from our server to the recipient’s server are not always encrypted and the recipient’s email configuration may not be encrypted from their device to their email server. In other words, SSL for your connection provides no assurances that your email message is encrypted until it’s intended recipient opens the message.


You can pick either one. We recommend IMAP because it will keep your phone email synced up with your webmail account. In other words, when you delete an email on your iPhone using IMAP, it also is deleted from your webmail account and vice versa.
