Secure Email Configuration

Webmail URL:
   (your browser will redirect to a secure login page)

POP3 Incoming server name:
   SSL Port: 995   STARTTLS Port: 110

SMTP Outgoing server name:
   SSL Port: 465   STARTTLS Port: 587

IMAP server name:
   SSL Port: 993   STARTTLS Port: 143

 • Use POP3 to download mail & store it on your computer.
 • Use IMAP or webmail to keep mail on our server for storage.

 • SSL connections are encrypted from start to finish.
 • STARTTLS uses clear channel ports to send encrypted email. The mailer initiates data encryption right before your username & password are sent.
 • We recommended using the SSL port unless due to firewall or client limitation the STARTTLS port is required.

Secure Password Authentication (SPA)?
 • SPA is a form of password encryption.
 • SPA is not necessary on SSL/TLS connections, which are already encrypted. Therefore we do not support this feature.

 • Each of the above servers, including SMTP, requires authentication with your username & password. Use your complete email address as your username.
 • Domain accounts with their own IP address and certificate can substitute with their certficate mail host name, e.g. .
 • Make sure SSL or STARTTLS is enabled on each port by your client application, otherwise clear channel is generally assumed. Clear channel will not connect on SSL ports. STARTTLS is sometimes referred to as just TLS in some older applications.

4SecureMail fully supports auto-detection of account settings in Thunderbird 3.1+ and Outlook 2007(SP2) and later. Other mailers or apps may work or partially work. Common problems include not enabling SSL and leaving off the domain in your username. So we recommend that you verify your settings manually even if they might seem to work fine after auto-configuration.
