posted this on March 1, 2010, 1:44 PM


Using an Email Client to Read your Email

You can use your custom domain email with any email client such as:

  • Outlook
  • Outlook Express
  • Thunderbird
  • Eudora
  • Mobile phone
  • Any client that supports POP3 email configuration
For specific instructions on how to setup email via a certain application or system, visit our email service doc center

Your username is your full email address (including the domain) and your password is what you set up in the Email Services section of your Webs account.

Receiving Mail

  • Incoming mail server (POP3):

Sending Mail

  • Outgoing mail server (SMTP):
  • In Outlook Internet E-mail Settings for Outgoing Server Check the box that reads: My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication.
  • Alternate SMTP Port (Optional): 2525

Depending on your security settings these are the ports you should be using:

Server Type Server Name Port
POP 110
POP with SSL 995
IMAP 143
IMAP with SSL 993
SMTP alternative port 2525
SMTP with SSL 465
Tip: If you are using Microsoft Outlook and cannot get your sendmail to work properly, this may be caused by a known issue with Outlook. Please see the following page for more information on how to correct the issue:
