How do I set up an email account (POP or IMAP)? Featured

1

You can use any email software with our High Speed Internet service. You can also retrieve email on your tablet or smart phone.

There is a quota of 3GB of mailbox storage. Mail should be archived to you local device to avoid exceeding the quota. If the quota is exceeded, no mail will be accepted for delivery and you will not be able to send any new mail. You will receive a warning email if you are starting to reach the quota.

There is a maximum message size of 30MB per email. If your attachment is larger that 30MB, you email will not be delivered.

You may also access your mailbox using our Web interface: https://webmail.cyg.net using your email address and password.

Differences between POP and IMAP protocols:

IMAP (Internet Messaged Access Protocol) and POP (Post Office Protocol) are two different message access protocols. Mornington supports both protocols.

Main features:

POP: Downloads emails from a server for permanent local storage on a computer or other device. You must select leave a copy on server AND remove from server after 30 days to use this on multiple devices.

IMAP: Leaves emails on the server. IMAP allows you to use different computers/devices to check your emails. Your emails will always be synchronized and will instantly appear in your webmail inbox no matter which device you use. If you are using IMAP exclusively make sure you either delete old emails before you reach the 3GB quota, or alternatevily archive your older and larger emails to a local file on your computer.

Many users will configure their desktop computer to use POP and their phone or other mobile device to use IMAP. This will keep all of your mail stored on your local computer, and your device will see any mail still on the server. This can make it easier to keep the size of your mailbox under control.
