How do I set up email?

Here are the general email settings for any client (Outlook, Thunderbird, Mac, iPad, etc.):

Username: name@yourwebsite.com (MUST YOUR FULL EMAIL ADDRESS)
Password: your password

Incoming (IMAP) server:
Port 993

Outgoing (SMTP) server:
Port 465

Outgoing mail server requires authentication.

If you see pop-up windows related to verifying the identity or certificate, simply hit Continue. This is related to the name of the server being different than your website name. It is not a security issue, and can safely be ignored.
