Mail.com offers free and premium email addresses for use at its website, which is accessible from any web browser. In addition to email, the Mail.com website includes a worldwide news portal that contains information on entertainment, sports, politics, technology and other areas of interest to its users. The company recognizes that some users may prefer to access Mail.com messages using a different email provider or app so they can receive and reply to all their emails in one place. To synchronize your Mail.com email account with a different email service or app, you need to input specific server settings.

SMTP server settings are needed to send email from a Mail.com account through a different email provider. The settings are the same for any email provider you use with Mail.com—where desktop or mobile. If you want to collect and manage your Mail.com email from a different email client or app, you have to enter all the right information into the client.

The Mail.com SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) servers are different from the SMTP servers of other email providers. Each provider has unique settings.

SMTP servers are only used for outgoing mail. The incoming Mail.com server settings are either POP3 or IMAP. You'll need those too.

Mail.com Default SMTP Settings

As you set up an email provider to synchronize with your Mail.com account, you'll get to a screen that asks for your Mail.com SMTP information. Use the following settings:

  • Mail.com SMTP server address: smtp.mail.com
  • Mail.com SMTP username: Your full Mail.com email address (example@mail.com)
  • Mail.com SMTP password: Your Mail.com password
  • Mail.com SMTP: port: 587 (alternatives: 465 and 25)
  • Mail.com SMTP TLS/SSL required: yes (no can be used as an alternative)

Mail.com's Default POP3 and IMAP Settings

Incoming mail that you receive from other people can only be downloaded to your email client if you're using the right Mail.com POP3 or IMAP server settings. To download mail from your Mail.com account to your preferred email program, use the correct POP3 or IMAP server settings for Mail.com when you set up the preferred email program

Mail.com POP3 Server Settings

  • Mail.com POP server address: pop.mail.com
  • Mail.com POP username: Your full Mail.com email address (example@mail.com)
  • Mail.com POP password: Your Mail.com password
  • Mail.com POP port: 995 (alternative: 110)
  • Mail.com POP TLS/SSL required: yes (no, if you use port 110)

Mail.com IMAP Settings

  • Mail.com IMAP server address: imap.mail.com
  • Mail.com IMAP username: Your full Mail.com email address (example@mail.com)
  • Mail.com IMAP password: Your Mail.com password
  • Mail.com IMAP port: 993 (alternative: 143)
  • Mail.com IMAP TLS/SSL required: yes (no, if you use port 143)

After you enter all the necessary settings, you'll be able to send and receive Mail.com messages using your preferred email service or app and manage your inbox and other folders located at Mail.com. You can continue to use all the features available at the Mail.com website interface in a browser as well.
