Generic POP, SMTP and IMAP Settings

E-Mail: General Topics

For most domains, the following generic mail configuration may be used on any mail client or mobile device connecting via POP, SMTP or IMAP:

POP SETTINGS (POPS)

Server Name

mail.wddx.net

User Name

your full email address (i.e. somebody@yourdomain.com)

Password

Your assigned password

Default port is 110, no encryption

We recommend using SSL encryption, and port 995

SMTP SETTINGS (SMTPS)

Server Name

mail.wddx.net

User Name

your full email address (i.e. somebody@yourdomain.com)

Password

Your assigned password

Note

You need to check off "my outgoing mail server requires authentication"

Default port is 25 or 587, no encryption

We recommend using SSL encryption, and port 465

IMAP SETTINGS (IMAPS)

Server Name

mail.wddx.net

User Name

your full email address (i.e. somebody@yourdomain.com)

Password

Your assigned password

Default port is 143, no encryption

We recommend using SSL encryption, and port 993


 

Note: Many internet service providers actively block you from sending mail through third parties. You may need to contact your ISP and use their outgoing mail server. Comcast, for example, would use "mail.comcast.net". Most ISPs do NOT require "my outgoing mail server requires authentication" since you connect to the internet via their network.

If you use a satellite connection, as many yachts do, then you would absolutely want to use your ISP's SMTP server.
