What are the SMTP, POP3 and IMAP server parameters for my mailboxes? - ­čĆć Managed Server
How Can We Help?
You are here:

Unless expressly specified all mailboxes use the same server settings for the use of protocols SMTP, POP3, IMAP and their respective secure and encrypted variants SMTPS, IMAPS and POP3S.

All server names of both outgoing SMTP and incoming POP3 or IMAP mail refer to the hostname: mail.hostalo.it

We comply with the specific RFC standards of the relevant protocols and the respective TCP ports which you can view below:

SMTP : 25 or 587
SMTPS : 465
POP3 : 110
POP3S : 995
IMAP : 143
IMAPS extension : 993

For secure protocols, the recommended encryption type is TLS or SSL on a per client basis.

It is recommended that you set up your e-mail clients in a secure configuration using secure protocols, especially where you frequently connect to a potentially unsafe wireless network of others.

Regarding the difference between IMAP and POP3 protocol, we invite you to read the following FAQ: What is the difference between IMAP and POP3?

The recommended mail parameters are as follows:

Email provider IMAPS settings POPS settings SMTPS settings
Managedserver.it Server: mail.hostalo.it

Port: 993

Encryption: SSL

Server: mail.hostalo.it

Port: 995

Encryption: SSL

Server: mail.hostalo.it

Port: 587 or 465

Encryption: TLS / STARTTLS or SSL

For the SMTP or SMTPS outgoing mail service, the user must enable authentication for outgoing mail using the email address assigned to him in the name@domain.it format and the relative password as login.
