How to configure Email in FoxMail ?

Date: December 31st, 2011 | Category: Email

Open the FoxMail program. Begin by clicking on the Account link in the menu at the top of the page.

From the drop-down menu, select and click on New. This will open the FoxMail Account Wizard window. Click Next. In this window, you will enter a User Name. This can be anything you want, as it only identifies the new account in FoxMail – it is not the username required to login to email.

Now click on the Next button again. In the next window, enter the Sender’s Name as you would like it to appear in the From field of outgoing emails into the first box. In the second box, enter your complete new email address. Click Next.

The following window is for your Incoming (POP3) and Outgoing(SMTP) server names. . They are simply “mail.yourdomain.com” with the “yourdomain.com” being your actual domain name. In the first box, marked “POP3 Server” enter your server setting. In the box below, marked “Account” enter the Account Username. This is the entire email address. Into the next box, enter your email Password.
The next box is for your Outgoing (SMTP) server setting. (Remember, it is usually the same as the Incoming setting) Then click Next.

On the next screen, check the box in front of the statement “SMTP server needs Authentication.” SMTP Authentication means that FoxMail will login to your mail server even when sending emails, not just when receiving. This is to ensure that you are the only one that can send emails from your account. Click Finish. This will take you back to the main screen.

That is all there is to it. We have successfully setup an email account in FoxMail, and can now begin to send and receive emails from that account. You may setup as many accounts as you wish, but REMEMBER, in order for the accounts to work, you must first create them in your hosting cPanel! Otherwise, they don’t exist as far as FoxMail is concerned.

Note

Usually, the port used for the Outgoing Mail Server/SMTP Service is 25. However, there might be a situation where your ISP might be blocking the use of port 25 for SMTP service. Many ISPs block port 25 in order to minimize the amount of spam sent using their network. If you are facing issues sending mails using the default port 25, you can confirm with your ISP whether port 25 is indeed blocked by them.

To circumvent this, Sibername allows you to use an alternate port 26 for sending mails if port 25 is blocked:
