POP3 or IMAP with SSL

For a secure email connection using SSL, you must replace your normal with the secure server name.

Finding the Secure Name


Unfortunately, the server name cannot be changed to a secure name.

Customers who have a reseller account can use the server’s hostname, the secure hostname for the incoming/outgoing certificate domain, or the secure hostname in the shared temporary url.

The URL would be something like this:

Secure Ports

Incoming Ports

* Secure POP3 – port 995
* Secure IMAP – port 993

Outgoing Ports

The outgoing mail is always SMTP, whether using IMAP or POP.

* Secure SMTP – port 465

Note: Make that your computer’s firewall isn’t blocking these ports, as this could prevent them from working properly. It is not usually required to use your ISP’s settings, but if you are unable to send from port 26 or 465, we recommend contacting your ISP and requesting their outgoing mail server name.
