Secure Email Settings

Secure Email Settings:

It is very important you access your email securely from your home, office, or mobile device.  If your email is not setup to use SSL security you may be sending your password across the network in plain text which is very easy for someone to grab!

Use the following server settings to access your email securely.

Server Configuration Settings:

Server Type Server Name Port
POP3 with SSL 995
IMAP with SSL 993
SMTP with SSL 465

The POP vs. IMAP debate is all about how you interact with your email. If you’re constantly in your email with attachments and use it like file storage system, POP3 will guarantee that you always have access to your information. If you’re constantly connected to a broadband or LTE network and you flit back and forth between a laptop, desktop, tablet, and smartphone, IMAP would most likely be the best thing for you. In most cases, especially if you have POP configured to store your email on the server instead of deleting it, you won’t normally notice a difference between the two services.

The biggest downside to POP is if you don’t have the server configured to store your email. If you download all of your email locally and something happens to your computer, you’ve lost those messages forever.

The biggest benefit to IMAP is the ability to quickly access your email from just about any device — as long as you have a decent internet connection you’re never more than a moment away from your entire inbox. Unfortunately, if you’re without a fast connection or if you are somehow without internet entirely, you’re going to have a bad day. Most IMAP clients will grab a week or two of email headers and store that information locally, but will not grab images or attachments. If you need to search your inbox for something, and that email is more than a few weeks old, you’ll find that the headers for your email will skip entire weeks of received messages unless you’re connected to the net.
