Configuring an email client to access your email is simple and straight forward
Your username is your full email address in each case
Your email server (inbound and outbound) is usually mail.yourdomain.com unless you are using Glide (http://glide.email) in which case you should configure the inbound and outbound mail server as simply "glide.fido.net"
Protocol ports should be left at their default setting
- IMAP 143
- POP3 110
- IMAPS 993
- POP3S 995
For outbound email you need to ensure you have ticked the "My Outbound Server Requires Authentication" option / Login using same settings as my Inbox
We recommend setting the Outbound SMTP server port to 587 (this defaults to 25 on some old devices). Newer devices / applications such as the iPhone and Mail.app will try 25 and 587 automatically.
Options such as "Secure Password Authentication (SPA)" should not be enabled as these are prioprietary Microsoft technologies and are not generally compatible with open standards services operated by ISPs such as Fido
