Outlook / Eudora / Thunderbird / Mac / iPad / Phone Client General Settings

The instructions listed below are for the general setup of various email clients and cannot be guaranteed to work with every email client. The following configuration settings are appropriate for third party email clients such as Outlook Eudora, iPad, etc.

When using the example below, be sure to replace with your actual domain name.

Your/Display name: anything you want
Email address: enter the full address ([email protected])

Type of connection: POP3 or IMAP (what is the difference ?)

Incoming mail server:
Outgoing mail server:
Outgoing mail server does require authentication.

Incoming mail port: 110 for POP3, 143 for IMAP
Outgoing mail port: 25 (If 25 does not work, try 26, as some ISPs block port 25)

Note: For Comcast/Xfinity Internet customers, port 587 is available for use as ports 25 and 26 are blocked on their network.
No SSL boxes should be checked*

Username/Account name: must be the full email address ([email protected]). Sometimes this setting won’t work until you replace the @ with a + in the username.

Password: the email password. Do NOT use SPA (secure password authentication).

* The configuration settings above are for a non-secure email connection. If you want a secure connection using SSL, please read this article: POP3 or IMAP with SSL

Third Party Email Client Features

While we are able to provide assistance with configuration and basic troubleshooting for third party email programs, the amount of assistance that can be provided by Casbay beyond this is very limited. Therefore, we are not responsible for the functionality of third party email clients or their features, such as contacts, calendars, etc.

Moreover, it is recommended that you seek out the developing party for your email client of choice for advanced options or settings.
