Check your password

  • First, check your password by browsing to Webmail and trying to log in. If you aren’t able to log in, then you have the incorrect password.

    6. The programme will unsuccessfully search for the provider. Select IMAP/POP

      Enter your account information

      • Choose IMAP or POP according to your preference.
      • Ensure that the User Name is the full email address in lower case.
      • If you don’t know your password, reset it in your control panel.
    7. Incoming server
      • add mail. before your domain name e.g. mail.example.co.za*
      • tick Use SSL to connect
      • Port  is 993 for IMAP or 995 for POP

      • Tick Use SSL to connect
