dots Mail Server Settings

  • Mail Server Settings for Hotmail

If you are using Microsoft Outlook & the Outlook Connector, you can define your Hotmail account just like any regular POP3 email account:

    Hotmail Incoming Mail Server (POP3) – pop3.live.com (logon using Secure Password Authentification – SPA, mail server port: 995)

Hotmail Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) – smtp.live.com (SSL enabled, port 25)

  • Yahoo! Mail Settings
  • Yahoo Mail offers standard POP3 access for receiving emails incoming through your Yahoo mailbox, by using your favorite email client software. To setup your email client for working with your Yahoo account, you need to select the POP3 protocol and use the following mail server settings:

      Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) – pop.mail.yahoo.com (port 110)
      Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) – smtp.mail.yahoo.com (port 25)

    POP Yahoo! Mail Plus email server settings

      Yahoo Plus Incoming Mail Server (POP3) – plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 995)
      Yahoo Plus Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) – plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 465, use authentication)
  • Google GMail Settings
  • The Google GMail service offers email client access for retrieving and sending emails through your Gmail account. However, for security reasons, GMail uses POP3 over an SSL connection, so make sure your email client supports encrypted SSL connections.

      Outgoing Mail Server – use the SMTP mail server address provided by your local ISP or smtp.gmail.com (SSL enabled, port 465 or 587)

  • The Netscape e-mail system is web-based, which means you can access their e-mail from any Internet connection. Netscape Internet Service also supports AOL® Communicator, Microsoft® Outlook, Microsoft® Outlook Express, and other POP3 e-mail software. The outgoing mail server needs SSL support, so make sure your email client software supports SSL connections over the SMTP protocol.

      Netscape Internet Service Incoming Mail Server (POP3) – pop.3.isp.netscape.com (port 110)
      Netscape Internet Service Outgoing Mail Server – smtp.isp.netscape.com (port 25, using a secure SSL connection)

      I was wondering if you ever actually considered changing the layout of your website? Its fairly properly written; I love what youve got to say. But perhaps you could potentially a little very much in the way of articles so persons could connect with it a good deal. Youve got an awful good of text for only having just one or two images. Perhaps you can space it out greater?

        You can use the below details. it works 100 % for tls and non-tls connections,
        * Incoming Mail Server (POP3): plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com
        Use SSL, port: 995
        * Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP): plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
        Use SSL, port: 465, use authentication.

        For rediff I give details only for non-tls connections.

          Hi rajesh,

          I have checked both the SMTP and POP are working fine for the given URL, Please let me know the client tool you are using. Mostly these are non-ssl ports, so you have to verify it first.

      Hey Anand,
      Thanks for the critical info there. It worked fine for me. I set up my Yahoo account for WordPress domain, but it’s pretty slow in sending emails. Incoming works fine though.

      For rediffmail, here’s what I use in Evolution, on Ubuntu 14.04 (I think the same settings will work on Outlook, in Windows):

      For receiving mail:
      Server: pop.rediffmail.com
      Port: 110
      Encryption method: No encryption
      Authentication: Password

      Sending:
      smtp.rediffmail.com
      port: 25
      Encryption: no encryption
      Authentication: PLAIN

      hello. I was using rediffmail earlier on android, with your settings. now on Firefox Os, there is an additional field called host name for both pop and smtp.
      by the way I don’t have paid version of rediffmail, but the android access was OK.
      now requesting your help

        Anand babu responded:
        January 10, 2016 at 4:22 pm

        Hello there!

        Not only for FirefoxOS all the other email clients you have to specify the server hostname of your emailID, In your case SMTP host name is smtp.rediffmail.com and for pop pop.rediffmail.com, which is already mentioned in the blog.

      Hello would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re using?

      I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different browsers and I
      must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you recommend
      a good web hosting provider at a reasonable price? Many thanks, I appreciate it!

        Anand babu responded:
        February 24, 2016 at 8:25 pm

        Hello kiersten,

        This is hosted in WordPress services not managed by me.

        Your question is genuine, I have worked many application,web and DB servers fine tuning. From my experience you can choose any provider but make sure the shared hosting support Varnish caching server. Or you have a choice of create a VPS and configure the following middelwares as the order of network traffic flow mentioned here Pound –> Varnish –> Nginx.

        Iam sure this will make your website/Application load faster then others

      what if all of that emails in one server? is that possible?

      […] As long as you have an account to the mail server, just knowing the smtp host and the port number seems like enough. My example here is using my Hotmail account. For other mail server settings, you can check out this useful link here. […]

        you have to use any kind of email client which support your requirement, by default the email client architecture will be every account has it own email boxs.

        In other hands you can configure the email forward feature to move all the mail to one inbox,

        Have you tried gmail “Accounts Import” will be a nice feature provided Gmail to get all the mails in one inbox, it will support even all the mail servers to be configure.
