This article explains how to setup your email client (the program or app you use to access your emails) such as Outlook 0n Windows or Mail on a Mac.
There are 2 ways to retrieve your email IMAP or POP. The method you use depends on whether you use multiple devices to retrieve email e.g. laptop, smartphone and desktop computer. If you connect using multiple devices then we recommend you use IMAP connection to retrieve email.
- IMAP email access coordinates between the server and your mail application. Messages that have been read/deleted/replied to will show up as such, both on the server and in the mail application.
- POP3 does not coordinate with the server. Messages marked as read/deleted/replied to in the mail application will not show up as such on the server. This means that future mail downloads with POP3 will show all messages as unread.
- Outgoing mail is sent using SMTP.
- We recommend using POP3 over SSL/TLS or IMAP over SSL/TLS since they provide increased security for your interactions with the remote mail server.
