Mail server settings & setting up mail clients

If you plan on using a mail application for receiving and sending emails from your account hosted by me (Dustin), you will need the following information. For details on setting up specific mail client apps, please see the bottom of this page.

Mail server settings

Host & port information

The following information is needed to make a connection from any email client application.

  Hostname/Server Port & Security Protocol
Incoming Mail (IMAP) 993 (TLS)
Outgoing Mail (SMTP) 587 (STARTTLS)

Logging in to an email account

Contrary to your account username which is usually firstnamelastname for all other services I offer, your username for email access will be your full email address (example:, and your password will of course be the unique password you set when your account was created.

The reason why the username must be your full email address is because one single user may own multiple mailboxes, so this allows the system to know which mailbox you wish to access.

If you have forgotten your username or password or are having difficulties logging in, please use the password reset form to reset your password. If you used it but have not received the password reset email, please contact me for assistance.

I have also written documentation on managing your user account which may be of further assistance to you.

Setting up mail clients

Please follow the links below to setting up common mail clients, being sure to use the information provided above to connect and login.
