The way to set up your email address with IMAP

You can always use Workspace Webmail to send and receive email messages. Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) lets you access email stored on a mail server from multiple computers and devices. To use IMAP email, you must have an email plan that supports IMAP.

It lets you access your email messages and files without transferring them between computers. You set up IMAP on the computers from which you want to access email from your account.

Our servers often use different names for folders compared with the client you’re using. Folders, such as Sent, might remain out of sync until you correctly map them. To do this, clients, such as Microsoft Outlook®, typically publish detailed instructions online. We recommend searching the Internet for instructions from that client to correctly map your folders.

BEFORE YOU START: To set up your email client with your email, you need to know your POP or IMAP Email Server Settings and ports. To find them, go to the Email Setup Centerand write down the information that displays under Email Server Settings.

To Set Up IMAP for Your Email Account

  1. Create an account with your email client.
  2. In the client for which you want to configure IMAP, locate the IMAP settings and enter the following:
    Your full email address
