What are the incoming and outgoing email server addresses for email?

We recommend using IMAP settings on all devices to prevent errors.

  • Using IMAP and POP3 simultaneously (or using POP3 across multiple devices) can cause mail synchronization errors when trying to send, receive or access email.
  • You might get an error message such as this: “The mail server denied access to your account because another mail client was using it.”

For more information, see Differences in How IMAP and POP3 Email Protocols Work.
