Do You Know Your Email Settings ?


If you have ever had to configure an email account after reinstalling or when something goes wrong , do you know your settings to streamline the process.

I hate to say this – but most people do not.

Email settings from providers can and do change sometimes.

So what do you need to know ?

  • Your email password
  • Incoming mail server
  • Outgoing mail server
  • IMAP or POP account
  • Is it SSL
  • Incoming Port
  • Outgoing Port

Just to name a few , so when you have set it up , take a photo of your settings with your smartphone and for your smartphone / tablets email settings  , take a screenshot.

Then if your email stops working or you have to reload your account on your current device or on a new device then you will be prepared.

Settings can be found on most major ISP websites.
