Connecting your email client Minimize

This lesson will give you the information that you need to setup of your email account.  It will not give you specific instructions for your particular browser.  I recommend that you read the documentation for your email client to see how to setup the specific configuration options.

One of the first things you'll need to know to setup your email account is the mail server address.  The mail server address his mail followed by a dot followed by your domain name.  For example, if your domain is, your mail server name will be  You'll need to enter this for both the POP3 and SMTP servers.

The other piece of information that your mail client will probably ask for is your username this is your full email address.  For example, if your domain name is and your email address is, then the username that you should enter is

You obviously need to enter your password for your POP3, but you also need to add your password for your SMTP server.  Our mail servers use what is called SMTP authentication.

It is pretty common for ISPs to block port 25.  Port 25 is the port that is used to send email.  If you find that your having trouble sending e-mail, there are two things that you can do.  First, you could just use of your ISP's email server to send email.  To do this, just copied your SMTP settings from the email account you are using for your ISP to the email account that you setup to get e-mail from your domain.  If you have the option, this will benefit you in that you'll be able to send email faster.  Your other option, is change the port that mail is sent on.  If you use this option you want to change a port number to port 587.

If you follow these directions carefully, you should have no trouble setting up your email client.
