Email Server Settings (Non Ruraltel Accounts)


Email Client Settings include Hotmail, Yahoo,Google (Gmail)MSN, and AOL.

Hotmail Settings:

As other web based email services, Hotmail is using the HTTP protocol for connecting you to your mailbox. If you want to send and receive Hotmail emails using an email client software, then your software must support Hotmail HTTP access for your email account. Some email clients, such as Outlook Express or Microsoft Outlook, offer built-in support for Hotmail accounts, so you only have to select HTTP when you are asked to select your email account type and select Hotmail as the HTTP Mail Service Provider.

Reference Link:

  • Hotmail Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - (logon using Secure Password Authentication - SPA, mail server port: 995)
  • Hotmail Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - (SSL enabled, port 25)

Yahoo Mail offers standard POP3 access for receiving emails incoming through your Yahoo mailbox, by using your favorite email client software. To setup your email client for working with your Yahoo account, you need to select the POP3 protocol and use the following mail server settings:
  • Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - (port 110)
  • Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - (port 25)
POP Yahoo! Mail Plus email server settings:
  • Yahoo Plus Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - (SSL enabled, port 995)
  • Yahoo Plus Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - (SSL enabled, port 465, use authentication)

Google GMail Settings:
The Google GMail service offers email client access for retrieving and sending emails through your Gmail account. However, for security reasons, GMail uses POP3 over an SSL connection, so make sure your email client supports encrypted SSL connections.
  • Google Gmail Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - (SSL enabled, port 995)
  • Google Gmail Incoming Mail Server (IMAP) - (SSL enabled, port 993)
  • Outgoing Mail Server - use the SMTP mail server address provided by your local ISP or (SSL enabled, port 465)

MSN Mail Settings:
The MSN email service allows you to use the MSN POP3 and SMTP servers to access your MSN mailbox.

Reference Link:
  • MSN Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - (port 110, using Secure Password Authentication - SPA)
  • MSN Outgoing Mail Server - (select "My outgoing server requires authentication")

AOL Mail Settings:
The AOL email service is a web based system, designed for managing your AOL mailbox via HTTP IMAP access. Unlike Hotmail, you can use any email client to access your AOL mailbox, as long as it supports the IMAP protocol.
  • AOL Incoming Mail Server (IMAP) - (port 143)
  • AOL Outgoing Mail Server - or use your local ISP SMTP mail server
