How do I connect to my email account?
Configure your mail client software (Outlook, Netscape Mail, Pegasus Mail,
etc) with the following:
POP3 server = pop.purplecat.net
IMAP server = imap.purplecat.net
SMTP server = smtp.purplecat.net
NOTE: smtp server port must be set to 587, and SMTP server requires authentication (usually found in 'advanced settings').
For encrypted connections, choose TLS for any server options above.
The username is your full email address. For example:
You will need to authenticate with the mail server before you will be
able to send mail. There is usually an option for "my SMTP server requires authentication" in your client, where you should also set the SMTP port to 587.
You can also check your mail via the webmail interface
Instructions for a variety of mail clients can be found here:
For IMAP connections in iOS, set the "IMAP Path Prefix" in Advanced Settings to "INBOX".
