Email Connection Settings

Notes:
  • Please replace yourdomain.com with the domain of the email that is pointed to your server.
  • If mail.yourdomain.com is not working (perhaps because you recently changed your domain's DNS), then you can replace it with the IP address or the hostname of the server which you are on.
  • These settings are the same for your addon and parked domains (when you are checking email for them and need to set up your account in your email client).
