Email Setup Guides - Outlook / Macmail

EMAIL CONFIGURATION SETUP

You are able to retrieve your email with a mail-client/program of your choice via POP3 / IMAP.
Email configuration set-up instructions differ between programs. However, all share the basic configuration settings:

Outgoing mail (SMTP) Server: Your ISP’s outgoing mail server or mail.yourdomain.com
Incoming mail (POP3) Server: mail.yourdomain.com
Email Address Your email address
Username: Your email address
Password: Your email password

 

(Replace yourdomain.com with your domain name. E.g. our website domain is www.socialhat.co.za, so that means it should be mail.socialhat.co.za)
