When you use a web-based email service like Mail.com, you have to access the website to send and receive email messages. However, you might prefer to access your email from that account through an email client, such as Outlook. You can do so after setting up an account on the client. The setup process requires that you enter server settings, including IMAP or POP to receive email, and SMTP to send email. Use the IMAP server settings listed below to access your Mail.com messages and email folders from any email program or service.

Only premium Mail.com subscribers have IMAP access to their accounts. The freemail plan doesn't support IMAP or POP.

Mail.com IMAP Settings

Access Mail.com's IMAP services using the following settings:

  • Mail.com IMAP server address: imap.mail.com
  • Mail.com IMAP user name: Your full Mail.com email address (for example, person@mail.com)
  • Mail.com IMAP password: Your Mail.com password
  • Mail.com IMAP port: 993
  • Mail.com IMAP TLS/SSL required: yes

Still Can't Connect to Mail.com?

If you can't send emails through the email client, it's most likely because the Mail.com SMTP server settings are wrong or missing. SMTP settings provide the email client with the information it needs to send email on your behalf.

An alternative is to set up your account with POP instead of IMAP. To do so, you'll need the Mail.com POP server settings. POP offers an alternative way to download Mail.com emails, but IMAP provides the flexibility to access your email from anywhere, and sync your email account across all your devices.
