||To setup an email client on your
PC, you will need to enter
Newer email clients like Thunderbird figure out most of the settings automatically based on your new email address. However, you will need to override the account name because it is not the same as the name part of your email address. For incoming and outgoing server settings, see below.
|Webmail Access (Recommended)
||For webmail access, you will
need your new account name and password. Click here and enter those in the
popup window. After your first login, you may want to click on
options->personal information and add your full name, signature,
etc. For secure (SSL encrypted) webmail access, use https://mail.opost.com/sqmail/
|Email Incoming Server:
You can use IMAP or POP3 protocols. IMAP is recommended in order to take advantage of spam filtering and other optional features. The advantage of POP3 is that new email is always downloaded to your computer, and you will be able to access it when offline.
You can specify a secure connection (TLS, START-TLS, and SSL) if available in your email client (Recommended). The first time you connect, you will need to confirm a security exception because we use a self-signed certificate. Some devices may not support making a permanent exception. For such devices, a connection security of type of 'none' must be used.
|Email Outgoing Server:
In the outgoing server window, check the "authentication required" box and use the same as for the incoming server. If you see error messages that the email client is unable to connect, it may be necessary to change the port setting to 587 for the outgoing server.
We recommend selecting "secure connection" (SSL or TLS) also. You will likely need to confirm a security exception for the first outgoing message sent.
