Set-up your email account with a email client (Outlook, iPhone, etc.)

Alongside webmail, you can setup your e-mail accounts using our hosting service with any e-mail client that supports POP3 or IMAP.


  • Microsoft Outlook
  • Windows Live Mail
  • Mac Mail
  • Any POP3/IMAP capable phone including iPhone and Android

We provide a quick and easy auto-setup process to add your e-mail account to your mail client.  To do this:

1.  Log into the cPanel account for the domain you want to set up (accessible from the product page in your client area)
2.  Click Email Accounts
3.  Locate the e-mail account you want to use (or add it if has not been set up)
4.  Click the More drop-down button next to the account
5.  Select Configure Mail Client.

Clicking this option will show you your POP3 / IMAP details, including your hostname, username, port and password.

You also have the option to download an auto-configure script which will setup your new e-mail account in your mail client for you without the need to manually enter any details. 

If your mail client is not listed, you can still manually setup the e-mail account using the detail provided.

Please note that some providers (EE, BT and TalkTalk) block access to port 25 for sending email.  If you are having difficulty sending e-mail, but can receive it, please use port 25025 in your mail client configuration.
