Use the following recommended settings to configure your desktop e-mail application or to access Webmail.

If you are using multiple devices to access the same mailbox (phone, PC and tablet for instance) we recommend IMAP over POP. This will leave a copy of your messages on the server, including folder structure and sent items which are then accessible on every device and via Webmail.
