What Ports Should I Use For Email?
« on: June 03, 2014, 11:07:46 am »
Personally I use webmail (RoundCube is my fave) almost exclusively.  But if you are using an email program installed on your computer, you will need to set up the connection ports.

Below are the connection ports to use on Cpanel hosted accounts, please note that Plesk or Windows may be different:



    993 (for SSL/TLS) (*Recommended)
    143 (for PlainText/StartTLS)


    995 (for SSL/TLS) (*Recommended)
    110 (for PlainText/StartTLS)


    465 (for SSL/TLS) (*Recommended)
    25  (for PlainText/StartTLS)
    587 (for PlainText/StartTLS)

* Recommended options provide the best security
Note: When using SSL/TLS connection (recommended) be sure to accept the server SSL certificate.  That process is different for depending on which mail program is being used.
