Setting up email in a client such as Outlook or Mac Mail on your cPanel server for the first time can be a bit complicated, but once you know a few key pieces of information, you can get almost any email client up and running quickly.
While each program’s setup process is going to be slightly different, the cPanel email settings below will apply to Outlook, Mac Mail, Thunderbird, Android, iOS Mail, or any other email client. You can access the specific cPanel email settings for your domain and learn how to set up specific email clients at How To Set Up Any Email Client.
Secure (SSL/TLS) Connections
Both the incoming and outgoing servers will use your hostname (the server name, as opposed to the domain name): host.yourdomainname.com
IMAP Port: 993
POP3 Port: 995
SMTP Port: 465 or 587 (the latest versions of popular mail clients such as Outlook and most Apple mail clients may require you to use port 587 for SMTP)
Standard (non-SSL) Connections
Both the incoming and outgoing server names will be your domain name: mail.yourdomainname.com (or simply yourdomainname.com)
IMAP Port: 143
POP3 Port: 110
SMTP Port: 25 or 587 (the latest versions of popular mail clients such as Outlook and most Apple mail clients may require you to use port 587 for SMTP)
Authentication Is Required for All Email Connections
Regardless of whether you’re using a secure or standard connection, please note that authentication is required for IMAP, POP3, and SMTP. This typically is configured in an email client by a checkbox such as “This server requires authentication”. If you have such a setting, it must be enabled.
