How do I set up my email in Outlook mail client?

We make use of 'autodiscover' technology, so that in the majority of cases, Microsoft Outlook can set up your account for you with only an email address and a password.

Automatic Setup

  • In Outlook, choose the File tab
  • Under Account Information, choose Add Account
  • On the Auto Account Setup page, enter your name, email address, and password, and then choose Next
  • Choose Finish

Manual Setup

If automatic setup failed, you can choose Manual setup or additional server types to enter your settings manually. Use these settings:

Account type: IMAP
Incoming mail server: imap.stackmail.com
Outgoing mail server: smtp.stackmail.com
Incoming server port (IMAP): 993
Use the following type of encrypted connection: SSL
Outgoing server port (SMTP): 465
Use the following type of encrypted connection: SSL/TLS

When setting up your account, please choose More Settings > Outgoing Server and check the box for 'My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication'.

If you experience any problems with the connection or receive a certificate warning, please disable SSL/TLS encryption and change the incoming server port to 143.

How do I set up my email in Thunderbird mail client?

There are various methods of connecting to mailboxes on our platform. We always recommend IMAP as that helps keep messages in sync between various devices and our webmail system. This is our recommended configuration for Thunderbird mail clients.

Incoming Server (“Account Settings” > “Server Settings”)

Server Name: imap.stackmail.com
Username: Your e-mail address
Port: 993
Connection security: SSL/TLS
Authentication method: 'Normal password'

Outgoing Server (SMTP)

Server Name: smtp.stackmail.com
Port: 587
Connection Security: STARTTLS 
Authentication method: 'Normal password'
Username: Your e-mail address

If you choose to use domain-branded server names, such as mail.your-domain or imap.your-domain, the secure connection may throw a certificate warning due to a common name mismatch. This can be safely trusted and your connection will remain secure.
