Password: Use the email account’s password.
Incoming Server: mail.yourdomain.com
IMAP Port: 143
POP3 Port: 110
Outgoing Server: mail.yourdomain.com
SMTP Port: 26 (if port 26 does not work with your ISP, you can use 25, 465, or 587)
Authentication is required for IMAP, POP3, and SMTP.
Accessing Email from your Domains with your ISP Verizon
If you have POP3 email accounts with your own domain, with some ISP’s you retrieve your email using your domain’s incoming mail server, and you send email using your ISPs outgoing mail server.
incoming mail server: mail.yourdomain.com
outgoing mail server: outgoing.verizon.net
(this is smtp.comcast.net if your ISP is Comcast)
Please call Verizon to verify SMTP settings if you are having any connection problems.
