Email Client Settings

If you need to connect your emails to an external application like Mozilla Thunderbird or Spark, these details can be handy.

Most of the time, email clients would detect and configure the necessary details.

If that doesn’t work, you may need to change the email server details instead of trying again.

Incoming Email Settings

  • Protocol: IMAP
  • Server: mail.example.com
  • Port: 993
  • SSL: SSL/TLS

Outgoing Email Settings

  • Protocol: SMTP
  • Server: mail.example.com
  • Port: 587
  • SSL: STARTTLS

Please make sure that you have replaced example.com with your actual domain name.

Your DNS Manager may be an external service like Cloudflare. Or you may use third party Email Service Providers like G Suite.

In that case, you have to make additional DNS changes.
