YoHost Linux Hosting FAQ: Email

What is the easiest way to configure Outlook or Outlook Express to check my mail?

  In your Control Panel, click on "Email Accounts." Then, for the desired email account, click "More" and then "Configure Email Client". We recommend choosing POP3 Access (SSL).

What settings should I use if the above shortcut method doesn't work for me?

  First, you will need to decide which method to use for incoming mail, POP or IMAP. For most users, we recommend POP (also known as POP3).

IMAP stores all mail on the server which can lead to high disk space usage.

POP downloads the mail to your computer. Most POP clients can be configured to delete the mail from the server, either immediately upon download, or after a specified number of days.

For secure SSL connection, we recommend the following settings:

Incoming mail server settings
Account type: POP or IMAP
Incoming mail server hostname: river.yodns.com
Username: your full email address
Password: your email password, as configured in CPanel
Incoming server port: 995 (if using POP) or 993 (if using IMAP)
Incoming server authentication method: Password (or) Clear text
Incoming mail server supports SSL: Yes

Outgoing mail server settings
Outgoing server hostname: river.yodns.com
Outgoing server port: 465
The outgoing mail server supports SSL: Yes
Outgoing server authentication type: Password (or) MD5
Outgoing server requires authentication (username and password): Yes (same as incoming)

I have several different domain names associated with my account. Can I set up forwarders or POP3 mailboxes for each domain?

  Yes, you can use the CPanel control panel to can set up forwarders or mailboxes.

I have set up a subdomain, sub.mydomain.com. Can I set up mailboxes such as user@sub.mydomain.com?

  Yes, you can use the control panel to do this.

Do you offer WebMail so that I can check my mail from any computer connected to the Internet?

  Yes. In the control panel, click on "Read Web Mail," or log-in at http://yourdomain.com/webmail/. If you wish to access a user-defined mailbox (instead of the default mailbox), use the complete address, user@your.domain, as the username.
