Setting up your email using IMAP

Please remember you can always use the webmail client that we have supplied for you, to send and receive your email messages.

So what is IMAP?

IMAP is the Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) that essentially lets you access email stored on a mail server from multiple locations, computers and devices, including desktop, mobile and tablets. All our email accounts support the latest IMAP technology.

How do I set up IMAP for my email accounts?

Create an account with your email client.( Outlook, Thunderbird, Live Mail, etc )

In the email client for which you want to configure your IMAP, locate the IMAP settings and enter the following information:

Username
This is the username we provided to you when we created your email account.
Email address
Your full email address ie. [email protected]
Password
Your email account password – this is the secure password we sent you when we created your email account.
Incoming Mail Server
mail.emailnw.co.uk
Outgoing Mail Server
mail.emailnw.co.uk
Incoming Port
With SSL – 993
Outgoing Port
With SSL – 25

NOTE: Your email client may require password authentication for your Outgoing Mail Server.

What if I don’t have an email client but want to use one ?

If you don’t already have MS Outlook installed on your machine, there are quite a few paid or free email clients to choose from. We can’t really recommend one against another, but there are plenty of websites offering comparisons between them.

One that always stands out is Windows Live Mail which is free and fairly robust and light on resources it can be found here : Live Mail Download you can even add your existing gmail, hotmail accounts to it too and get all your email in one place.
