Our servers support SSL on POP3, IMAP & SMTP, and also support normal (non-SSL) connections. These are our recommended email client settings:
 
Secure Connection Settings (SSL/TLS)

Remember, your username is the mail account's full email address so please replace [email protected] with your full email address.
