What are the correct settings for my email client?

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.

POP3

To setup your new email account using the POP protocol, you should use the following connection details in your email program:

User Name: Your mail account's full email address (eg. [email protected])
Password: Password set for the email account in your Mail Control Panel
Incoming mail server (POP3): mailx.hosts.net.nz
Secure/Encrypted Connection: Enabled for SSL or SSL/TLS
Port number: 995

Outgoing mail server (SMTP): mailx.hosts.net.nz
Secure/Encrypted Connection: Enabled for SSL or SSL/TLS
Port number: 465 or 587
Authentication: Enabled and using the same username and password as for the incoming server.

IMAP

To setup your new email account using the IMAP protocol, you should use the following connection details in your email program:

User Name: Your mail account's full email address (eg. [email protected])
Password: Password set for the email account in your Mail Control Panel
Incoming mail server (IMAP): mailx.hosts.net.nz
