All connections (IMAP, POP3, and SMTP) require authentication.

If you are not sure whether to use IMAP or POP3, use IMAP.

  • IMAP email access coordinates between the server and your mail application. Messages that have been read/deleted/replied to will show up as such, both on the server and in mail applications signed into the same account.
  • POP3 does not coordinate with the server. Messages marked as read/deleted/replied to in the mail application will not show up as such on the server. This means that future mail downloads with POP3 will show messages as unread if not opened on the server (i.e. Webmail).
  • Outgoing mail is always sent using SMTP.
  • We recommend using SSL/TLS since they provide increased security for your interactions with the remote mail server. 

How to change your email password:

  • If you know your current email password, you can always login to and select the password option to change your password.
  • If you have forgotten your password, you’ll need to contact our office to get it reset. Remember, you’ll have to re-enter the new password on all mail clients (Outlook, Apple Mail, Windows Mail, etc).

Setting up email on iPhone:
