Cannot receive emails

Looking for Linux Server Admin or WordPress Expert? We can help.


There are number of reasons that may cause you can not able to read emails. The most common reasons are:

* Username is incorrent. Most email clients only suggest the first part of the email address (user instead of [email protected]) as the username, while our email servers require the full email address to be used as the username.

* Using SSL on non-SSL ports. If you want to use SSL for your incoming emails – make sure you are using one of the following ports:

POP3 (SSL): 995

IMAP (SSL): 993

* Wrong ports (non-SSL). If you are not using SSL – make sure you are using one of the following ports:

POP3: 110

IMAP: 143

* Wrong host/server name. Make sure you are using the correct server for incoming emails. In most cases you can use (where is your domain name).
