How do I configure my mail client? PDF Print E-mail

Introduction



In order to send and receive email outside of the webmail portal, you’ll need to setup up an email client application on your device(s). We’ve included some examples of how to configure a few of the most common email client applications below (outlook, thunderbird, mac mail, iOS mail).

 

Please keep in mind that third-party software can not be fully supported by Superb Internet. If you have further questions about configuring their software please contact the company directly.

 


Setting Up POP3/IMAP Accounts

(In the following examples, we use "example-domain.com" in place of domain name attached to your email account

  • Incoming Server: mail.superb.net

  • Outgoing Server: smtp.superb.net (however, we still encourage to use your ISP's SMTP {e.g. smtp.comcast.net, smtp.bellsouth.net, etc.} if you can since it would be a lot quicker as it is closer to you - note not all ISP's mail servers will allow a relay)

  • Login: user@example-domain.com

  • E-mail address or Return e-mail address: user@example-domain.com

Under Outgoing Mail Server, ensure that the option "My Server requires authentication" is checked(if available) and under settings, ensure that "Use same settings as my incoming mail server" is checked(again, if available).



Configuration Information

 

Incoming Mail Server:

  • Host: mail.superb.net

  • Port: 143 (IMAP) / 110 (POP)

  • Authentication: Plain or Password

Outgoing Mail Server

  • Host: smtp.superb.net

  • Port: 587

  8. You should be all done. Give it a test by sending an email and receiving an email from an outside email provider (Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, Outlook, etc.). As long as it’s not hosted with us then it should be good to test with.


***Note: If you are wanting to switch from POP to IMAP, you will need to delete the email account from the email client and re-add as IMAP. Double check email client documentation, but most do not allow for switching between the two without deleting and re-adding/re-creating to mail client. There is a way to backup existing email messages then delete and put those back in your email client, but again you’ll need to see the email client documentation for doing this.
