Configuring Mail Account

 

If the provider’s policy allows setting up mail accounts and services through Control Panel, then you can set up and use the following types of e-mail services:

  • Mailboxes associated with your domain names.
  • E-mail aliases: additional e-mail addresses that are associated with a user’s primary (or main) e-mail address. E-mail aliases can be used as temporary disposable addresses that can be published on the Internet. When spam starts coming to an address that was set up as an e-mail alias, you can remove that alias and create another one.
  • E-mail forwarding: for each e-mail account, you can set up e-mail forwarding service that will send copies of all incoming messages to another e-mail address.
  • Automatic response: for each e-mail account, you can switch on automatic response service, which will send a predefined e-mail message in reply to any incoming e-mail message. This is useful for sending “out of office” or “on vacation” notices when you are away.
  • Protection from spam: for each e-mail account you can set up the analysis of all incoming messages by antispam filter. In addition, you can specify what to do with messages identified as spam: Remove them, move to special folder, or just add some text to the message subject.
  • Protection from viruses: Panel can check all incoming and outgoing mail for viruses.

Troubleshooting Sending or Receiving email

 

A) You may need to adjust your Outgoing Mail Server Port Numbers for certain ISP’s. Below are some common settings (if these do not work, please contact your ISP for their requirements).

  • AT&T :
    Incoming server ports (POP3) 110, (IMAP) 143, or (Mac Mail) 995   
    Outgoing server porst (SMTP) 587, 465 or 26
    Select “This server requires encrypted connection (SSL)” (if prompted to accept self-signed certificate, click YES)
  • Verizon: :
    Incoming server ports (POP3) 110, (IMAP) 143, or (Mac Mail) 995   

    Outgoing server porst (SMTP) 465 or 26 
    Select “This server requires encrypted connection (SSL)” (if prompted to accept self-signed certificate, click YES)

    alert! as you change SSL options, your email application may switch the port number back to the default… watch this carefully as you make changes. You may need to re-enter the correct port number!

B) Some Phone Companies & ISPs (Internet Service Providers) such as COX do not automatically allow pass through of outgoing mail. You may need to contact your ISP Tech Support and ask them to allow your account to send directly from your web server account.

C) You can also choose to send using your ISP’s Outgoing Mail Server. Here’s how to do that within Outlook Express:

  • Tools -> Accounts
  • select the Mail tab
  • Choose your Email Account and click Properties
  • Select the Servers tab
  • under Outgoing Mail Server, check the box for “My server requires authentication”
  • then click the “More Settings” button
  • select “Log on using”
  • enter your account name and password for your ISP supplied email account
  • leave “Remember Password” checked
  • Save your settings
