What is my POP3 & SMTP server settings?

Your POP3 and SMTP server address is mail.yourdomainname.extension

For example, if you registered the domain "mycompany.co.za" your POP3 & SMTP settings will be:

mail.mycompany.co.za

 



* Note: For SMTP to work successfully, you need to activate server authentication. In most email applications, this is referred to as "My outgoing mail server requires authentication". You then need to supply your POP3 username & password for it to work.

** Sometimes it may even be necessary to use your ISP's (Internet Service Provider) SMTP settings. Thus, if your outgoing server it not connecting, or not working please one your ISP's smtp settings.
