Email Configuration Setup
You are able to retrieve your email with a mail-client/program of your choice via POP3 / IMAP.
Email configuration set-up instructions differ between programs. However, all share the basic configuration settings:
|Outgoing mail (SMTP) Server:||Your ISP’s outgoing mail server or mail.yourdomain.com|
|Incoming mail (POP3) Server:||mail.yourdomain.com|
|Email Address:||Your email address|
|Username:||Your email address|
|Password:||Your email password|
(Replace yourdomain.com with your domain name. E.g. our website domain is www.advertisingsolutions.co.za, so that means it should be mail.advertisingsolutions.co.za)
