8. Enter your name and email address in the space provided.

9. For server information, select "IMAP". Then enter your domain name in the space provided for "Incoming mail server" and "Outgoing mail server (SMTP)". (Note: The domain names must match exactly.)

10. Continue to enter your username and password.

Make sure that you use your FULL email address for the user name. And don�t worry about putting "mail" or "smtp" in front of the server names. They will work just fine with your domain name, which should be the same for both server boxes. You should always "Test Account Settings" before moving on, if you are using a POP3 account.

* The servers support both POP3 and IMAP mail types.

IMAP is primarily used in conjunction with a webmail system, which we also offer. It is useful in synchronizing both the emails on your computer, phone, and in your webmail box

Select POP3 if you do not plan on using webmail OR plan on "leaving a copy of messages on the server" which you can find under the Advanced menu in the "More Settings" dialog.

Please remember you may not receive all of your email if you do not delete your email regularly!
