POP Server Settings:

SMTP Server Settings:

Webmail Server Settings:
While there are no client side settings required in most cases, be aware that our webmail application uses Javascript and requires the use of cookies to login. These settings must be enabled in your browser to use our webmail service (this is typically enabled by default).

Be wary of your mail server storage utilization when using webmail as your primary method for checking mail as this method does not remove old messages from the server unless you manually delete them. Your disk usage statistics are available at the bottom of the screen when logged into your webmail account.
