cPanel email settings

General Settings

To send or receive email, use your full email address (e.g., support@zordio.com) as your username.  If your mail client does not support @ in the username, you may use + instead (e.g., support+zordio.com).  If you do not know your password, please contact your administrator or support@zordio.com.

To receive mail, use mail.yourdomain (e.g., mail.zordio.com) as the server.  It is recommended to use SSL encryption to protect your password and mail.  This may cause an SSL certificate error, as the SSL certificate is assigned to the main hostname of the server.  If this error persists, you may instead use the server name (eg, hydrogen.freedombi.com).  This may cause problems if your account is migrated to another server.

To send mail, you must configure your mail client to use port 587 for outgoing mail.  It is also recommended to enable TLS (not SSL) encryption.  The username and password for sending mail will be the same as for incoming mail.

If you are unable to connect to the server to send mail, verify the server for the outgoing port.
