Below, you will find instructions for configuring and using email software as well as web-based email functionality.

Configuring email software

You will need the following informations before starting the configuration:

  • Email address that you want to setup
  • The password for this email account
  • The software that you want to configure your email in and the exploitation system on which the software is installed.

Our instructions allow you to choose between POP3 or IMAP protocol. If you are unsure which one is better for you, we recommend using the IMAP configuration because it will be possible to modify the reception protocol later without losing messages. Click on this link to see differences between POP3 and IMAP protocols.
