You can use an email program – like GMail, Hotmail, Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Eudora or Apple Mail – to send and receive email from your domain mailboxes.

To do this, you need to add a new account to your email program. The exact way of doing this will vary depending on which program you use, but you usually need to find the add new email account option within the program you are going to use.

Please check the user guide for your email program to find out exactly how to do this – there are links to instructions for the most popular mail programs towards the bottom of this page.

When adding a new email account, you’ll be asked to supply some details. Enter them as follows:

For POP3:

Mail account type: POP3
Incoming mail server (POP): mail.yourdomain
Port: 110
Outgoing mail server (SMTP): mail.yourdomain

When adding a new email account, you’ll be asked to supply some details. Enter them as follows:
