Non-SSL Hostnames

If you are configuring your Email Client using your branded hostnames, you will not be able to use the SSL ports. In this case, you can use the following hostnames. 

Outbound Server SMTPsmtp.domainname.comPort 25/587
Inbound Server IMAPimap.domainname.comPort 143
Inbound Server POPpop.domainname.comPort 110

The domainname.com in the above example needs to be replaced with your domain name. For example, if your domain name is example.com, the above-mentioned hostnames will be as follows.

smtp.example.com
imap.example.com
pop.example.com



SSL Hostnames

Our Email infrastructure supports TLS/SSL configurations on an Email Client too. We support STARTTLS on SMTP and SSL on IMAP and POP. Based on the product you have with us, you can use one of the following configurations.

Free Email or Business Email

Our Free Email and Business Email infrastructure is set up in two data centers. Depending upon where your order is provisioned, you will need to use one of the following hostnames.

Configuration 1
