When setting up your email account on your mail software you will require the following mail settings:

 

  • Incoming:  mail."your-domain-name"   (e.g. mail.abc.co.uk, or mail.home.com)
  • Outgoing  mail."your-domain-name"    (e.g. mail.abc.co.uk, or mail.home.com)
  • Username  full email address         (e.g. sales@abc.co.uk)
  • Password  this is set when you created the address/mailbox

 

Please enable the "my outgoing server requires authentication" option in your mail software.

 

When choosing which protocol to use, please see this link which may assist in your decision:
