Depending on the provider, you may need to configure settings in the email client before the connections can be tested. To check and allow access with your email provider:

Manual email settings

This is for accounts that are not Gmail or Yahoo, select IMAP and SMTP accounts

Some further information will be needed, but these can be found in the Support section provided via the email provider – look for ‘email settings’ or ‘setting up your email client’.

IMAP will also need to be enabled for the email account – log in to the account in a browser and look for this option in the email settings.

In addition to having an email address, username and password you will need:

  • The server address and ports for incoming and outgoing mail
  • Security and authentication requirements (whether SSL is required or whether authentication is required for outgoing mail.)

Once all fields are complete, select Test Connection to verify the settings.
