What are the server settings for IMAP, POP and SMTP?

All our email services are transparently routed to the server that hosts your website so that only one set of details is required.

To keep your email secure, and our servers secure, we've enforced the use of SSL/TLS based encryption. This means that all clients must use the following settings.

For IMAP Clients:

  • Server Name: mail.whitegum.net.au
  • Port: 993 (SSL/TLS) or 143 (STARTTLS)
  • Connection Security: Use SSL/TLS or STARTTLS
  • Authentication Method:
    • Encrypted Password (SSL/TLS)
    • Normal Password (STARTTLS)
  • Username: <YourEmail@Address>
  • Password <YourEmailAccountPassword>

For POP3 Clients:

  • Server Name: mail.whitegum.net.au
  • Port: 995 (SSL/TLS) or 110 (STARTTLS)
  • Connection Security: Use SSL/TLS or STARTTLS
  • Authentication Method:
    • Encrypted Password (SSL/TLS)
    • Norrmal Password (STARTTLS)
  • Username: <YourEmail@Address>
  • Password: <YourEmailAccountPassword>

For SMTP Clients:

  • Server Name: mail.whitegum.net.au
  • Port: 465 (SSL/TLS) or 587 (STARTTLS)
  • Connection Security: Use SSL/TLS or STARTTLS
  • Authentication Method:
    • Encrypted Password (SSL/TLS)
    • Normal Password (STARTTLS)
  • Outgoing Server Requires Authentication: Yes
  • Username: <YourEmail@Address>
  • Password: <YourEmailAccountPassword>

Where possible, it is reccomended that you use SSL/TLS with Encrypted Password instead of STARTTLS.

 

For desktop systems, we reccomend the use of the free and open-source Mozilla Thunderbird email client and for mobile devices with Apple iOS or Android we reccomend the free  Edison Mail app available from your device's App Store.
