While we do provide email setup support articles in our FAQ, our Technical Support team are unable to provide support for third party email software. We recommend contacting the software vendor for troubleshooting issues with these applications. Click here for Microsoft Office Support.

Prior to setting up email on your device(s) you will need to do one of the following:

Once you have created a mailbox using one of these methods you will be able to retrieve server settings from cPanel itself or if using Business email they will be on the welcome email we send out once your mailbox is configured.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are operating on a version of Windows prior to Windows 10 then you may have issues connecting to our newer servers which are strictly PCI compliant. Your mail software must be able to connect securely over TLS1.1 or (preferably) TLS1.2. There are patches you can apply to older versions of Windows to become compliant however we cannot help you make these changes. You will need to seek advice from a trained IT technician. Alternatively you can update to Windows 10 if comfortable in doing so.
