Setting up your mail client with E-Mail

Alongside WebMail you can setup your e-mail accounts using our Web Hosting and Reseller Hosting service with any e-mail client that supports POP3 or IMAP.


- Microsoft Outlook
- Microsoft LIVE Mail
- Outlook Express
- Mac Mail 
- Any POP3 / IMAP capable phone

We provide a quick and easy auto-setup process to add your e-mail account to your mail client.  To do this:

1.  Log into the cPanel account for the domain you want to set up
2.  Click Accounts  (called Email Accounts on the old x3 cPanel theme)
3.  Locate the e-mail account you want to use (or add it if has not been set up)
4.  Click the More drop-down button next to the account
5.  Select Configure Mail Client

Clicking this option will show you your POP3 / IMAP details, including your hostname, username, port and password.

You also have the option to download an auto-configure script which should set up your new e-mail account in your mail client for you without the need to manually enter any details. 

If your mail client is not listed, you can still manually setup the e-mail account using the detail provided.

Please note that some providers (EE, Orange, BT and TalkTalk) block access to port 25 for sending email.  If you are having difficulty sending e-mail, but can receive it, please use port 25025 in your mail client configuration.
