||To setup an email
client on your
PC, you will need to enter
Newer email clients like Thunderbird figure out most of the settings automatically based on your new email address. However, you will need to override the account name because it is not the same as the name part of your email address. For incoming and outgoing server settings, see below.
|Webmail Access (Recommended)
||For webmail access,
need your new account name and password. Click here and
enter those in the
popup window. After your first login, you may want to click on
options->personal information and add your full name, signature,
etc. For secure (SSL encrypted) webmail access, use https://mail.opost.com/sqmail/
|Email Incoming Server:
You can use IMAP or POP3 protocols. IMAP is recommended in order to take advantage of spam filtering and other optional features. The advantage of POP3 is that new email is always downloaded to your computer, and you will be able to access it when offline.
You can specify a secure connection (SSL/TLS) if available in your email client (Recommended). The first time you connect, you may need to confirm a security exception because Thunderbird or other email software does not recognize the certificate authority. Some devices may not support making a permanent exception. For such devices, a connection security of type of 'none' must be used. The setup should look something like this Thunderbird example:
|Email Outgoing Server:
In the outgoing server window, check the "authentication required" box and use the same as for the incoming server. Check the port value and change it to 587 if necessary.
We recommend selecting "secure connection" (TLS) also. You may need to confirm a security exception for the first outgoing message sent. The setup should look something like this Thunderbird example:
Other Ports: Some older software may support encrypted connections but not STARTTLS. For those, port 465 (SSL/TLS) should work. In rare cases, some netwowrk service providers have been observed to block the standard outgoing port 587. If port 587 consistently does not work, especially if it always hangs or times out, it is probably blocked. In that case, port 9024 may save the day.
