Available ports and protocols used for email in the DirectAdmin
environment are given below.
For all protocols listed below, you may connect directly to the machine
on which you do your control panel login; typically jade.rahul.net,
Or you can just connect to your own domain name prefixed with ”mail”
(e.g., ”mail.example.com”). This will get you to the same machine.
IMAP for reading mail:
Use either insecure IMAP, or secure IMAP with TLS, on port 143.
Or use secure IMAP with SSL on port 993.
POP for reading mail:
Use either insecure POP, or secure POP with TLS, on port 110.
Or use secure POP with SSL on port 995.
SMTP for sending mail:
Use either insecure authenticated SMTP on port 587.
Or use secure authenticated SMTP with TLS on port 587.
Or use secure authenticated SMTP with SSL on port 465.
Note: If you have a DSL, cable, or other high-speed connection, you can
send outgoing mail via your connectivity provider's SMTP server
following their instructions. It's not necessary for you to connect to
our server to send outgoing mail.
Note: For authenticated SMTP, please use the same login name and
password that you use for POP or IMAP. Mail accounts created as mail
accounts within your control panel will use an email
address for logging in for IMAP, POP, or SMTP; e.g.,
