Email Client Setup
Generic Email Client Settings
What is an email client app?
Email clients are applications on your computer or apps on your phone that retrieve emails and deliver them to your email inbox. Email clients can both send and receive your email messages. Microsoft Outlook and Mac Mail are two examples of email clients. This article includes set up guides for the most common email clients.
These are the generic settings and should work for any email client or mobile device.

|Username:||Your full email address|
|Password:||Your email password|
|Connection Type:||Server & Port info|
|POP||Incoming Server: pop.dotster.com
Incoming Port: 110 (or 995 with SSL enabled)
|IMAP||Incoming Server: imap.dotster.com
Incoming Port: 143 (or 993 with SSL enabled))
|SSL (Optional):||Enabled or Disabled|
