  6. Incoming Settings:
    • Username will be the account’s email address.
    • Server will usually either be the email account’s domain name, or the name of the host server.
    • Port will depend on whether the account is set up as POP3 or IMAP, along with the Security Type selected – for POP3, use ports 995 (for SSL) or 110 (no SSL), and for IMAP use either 993 (for SSL), or 143 (no SSL).
    • Security Type will depend on whether a SSL Certificate is active and covering your mail domain – this is configured within Plesk.
    • Tap Done to save your changes.

  7. Outgoing Settings (based on plans with SMTP Email Relay included):
    • Ensure “Require sign-in” is enabled.
    • Username will once again be the account’s email address.
    • SMTP Server will be the email address’s domain name, or the name of the host server.
    • Port will depend on the Security Type selected. For SSL/TLS, use either ports 465 or 587. If you are not using SSL/TLS, use port 25.
    • Security Type will depend on whether a SSL Certificate is active and covering your mail domain – this is configured within Plesk.
    • Tap Done to save your changes.
