A POP3 account is a great way to save, store, and send your business email messages. There are many different POP3 email client programs available such as Microsoft Outlook, Outlook.com, Mozilla Thunderbird, and iCloud.
Below are some basic instructions to get you started in setting up your POP3 account. We have also included the Chilifish settings needed to set up your POP3 account.
Before setting up your POP3 Outlooks account, login to your webmail account to ensure that messages can successfully be sent and received by the mail server.
Send yourself a new email message with the Subject: “Test” and “Test” in the message body.
If you have successfully sent and received this Test email, you ready to begin Step 2, the Set Up of your POP3 Account. Leave your webmail account open until you have finished creating your Outlook account.
If you cannot send or receive a test message successfully through your webmail account, then please submit a Helpdesk ticket so we can troubleshoot the issue. (mail not sending or receiving from the Webmail server is a Chilifish issue that we need to resolve. Mail not sending or receiving from a POP3 account, is the third party software program’s issue)
Unfortunately, we cannot support the set-up of your POP3 email account. If the instructions provided below do not fully meet your needs, you will need to contact the software provider or your computer technician for further assistance.
Open your email client program
You will need the following settings:
Option 1 - for desktop computers: enter your current ISP’s SMTP server name goes here.
Option 2 - for laptops that aren't in a fixed location: enter our smtp information
For additional information or to troubleshoot the set up of your POP#, we suggest completing an internet search for support documents specific to your email client application and/or your ISP. Most issues pertaining to POP3 set ups and step by step instructions can be found online.
Thank you very much.
