How do I setup my mail account to work with my email program?
Make sure you have your account information handy (email address + password). Then, follow the provided instructions below to setup your email client.

Quick Guide to Email Setup
Important: You should enter your Email Address & Password in two places:
  • One place for Receiving email
  • A second place for Sending email
User Name or ID (email address): yourname@your-domain.com
Password: Use the secure password we generated. (See more below)

IMAP is preferred (especially if you use multiple devices to check email), but POP is fine and simpler to configure.

Incoming Mail Server: onemail.net (Turn TLS or SSL=ON) IMAP should default to port 993.

Outgoing Mail Settings:
Outgoing Mail Server: onemail.net
SMTP Authentication: ON
Use SSL/TLS: ON (Some clients like newer Outlook versions prefer TLS)
Outgoing ports: 587 [preferred, TLS=ON or SSL for some clients]
20587 is alternate SSL port. Port 25 is problematic and often blocked by firewalls (2525 or 465 are alternates).

More detailed screen shots are below. The various email clients (e.g., Outlook) change frequently, so some things may look slightly different from the version you are using. Please use onemail.net for all server settings, rather than mail.your-domain.com (onemail.net allows you to use SSL).

You can update your password by logging into Webmmail (onemail.net) and clicking on Preferences:Password
Note: do not use the same Email & Password combination you use for other sites, or your email will be breached when Target or Macy's or Home Depot gets hacked.
