Configure Mail Client

To send and receive emails with your domain from any desktop or mobile email client, e.g. Windows Live Mail, Outlook or iOS of iPhone, etc. cPanel provides you with preconfigured settings for these applications. You just need to download and run the settings file and it will automatically configure the email client. You may need to enter your email account password. You can also manually configure the email clients for sending and receiving emails for your email client.

To download Auto Configuration Scripts or see the manual settings, click on the "Configure Mail Client" link corresponding to your email account.

Configuration Scripts

You can download Auto Configuration Scripts to configure the mail client interface. Just download the appropriate settings and run the file.

Or if you want to configure your mail client manually, you can scroll down to see the manual settings.

Note − There are four types of settings – IMAP and POP3, both over SSL/TLS and Non-SSL too. Using SSL sends your messages with encryption providing an extra layer of security, but Non-SSL does not. It is recommended that you use settings with SSL. From IMAP or POP3, you can choose anyone you want. Both will work perfectly.
