Configuring a POP email account with SSL in DreamMail

This demo assumes you've already opened DreamMail.

Now click on the tools menu.

Click on Account Management.

Click New.

Type your email address.

Type your password.

Leave these options selected.

Type your name.

Leaving both selected, click next to continue.

Type your name which will be displayed in the Sender column to the receiver.

Click on Next to continue...

Enter your username which should be your full email address, for example, username@yourdoman.tld

Click Next to continue...

If your server needs SMTP server authentication, then keep this selected; otherwise, deselect it. Let's leave it selected for now.

Now select Requires a secure connecton (SSL) for the incoming mail server.

Note that the POP port has been changed to 995. You need an SSL port for a POP server.

Now select this option for the SMTP server.

The port hasn't been changed for the SMTP server automatically like it was for POP3.

Make sure you change it to 465.

Now click on Next to continue...

Leave this selected so your mail will be left on the server despite it being downloaded in DreamMail.

Click on Next to continue...

Almost done! You can click on Test Account to verify the info you entered.

Let's just hit Finish to continue...

You have successfully configured a POP email account in DreamMail.

This is the end of the tutorial. Now you know how to configure a POP email account with SSL in DreamMail.
