Outgoing mail server (SMTP): Please remember the outgoing mail server (SMTP) is dependent on the internet connection you are using.

  • If you are using mobile data e.g. MTN (mail.mtn.co.za), Vodacom (smtp.vodamail.co.za).
  • If you are unsure of your mail server settings, please contact your ISP.

Internet E-mail Settings (POP3)

Step 6:

Click the "Advanced" tab, and Enter 110 in the box next to "Incoming server (SMTP):".

Advanced Settings
  1. Optional: If you would like to use both Pop3 and Webmail, check the box for "Leave a copy of messages on server"; Under the header Delivery on the Advanced Tab, you have a few options here, depending on your needs.
  2. Recommended setup: Make sure that "Leave a copy of messages on the server" is checked. Then change the "14" to the number of days you want to leave messages on our servers.
  3. Multiple Devices: Make sure that "Leave a copy of messages on the server" is checked. You can either set the number of days you want to leave messages on our servers or alternatively, uncheck the "Remove from server after x days" checkbox completely
  4. If you check "Remove from server when deleted from Deleted Items", then messages will be deleted when you delete them in Outlook. This may be useful if you&Apos;re trying to keep your Webmail box (sort-of) in sync with Outlook without using IMAP, but you shouldn't choose it if you're leaving messages on our server to be backed up.
  5. Click "Test Account Settings..." After receiving "Congratulations! All tests completed successfully," click Close.
  6. Click Next, and then click Finish.
