easyMAIL Settings And Specifications

You are in the updated Knowledge Base for the Canvas Theme.
If you are still using the old theme you can view the correct Knowledge Base here: https://help.easydns.com/.
The following is the inbound and outbound settings you will need to enable easyMail on other devices/mail clients:


Server Hostname: imap.easymail.ca
Server Port: 143
Username: yourname@yourdomain (e.g., me@example.com)
Security Settings: TLS, SSL or none
The default port for SSL enabled IMAP is port 993.


Server Hostname: pop.easymail.ca
Server Port: 110
Username: yourname@yourdomain (e.g., me@example.com)
Security Settings: TLS, SSL or none
The default port for SSL enabled POP is port 995.


Outbound Mail Server: mailout.easymail.ca
Username: your full easyMAIL address (e.g., me@example.com)
Password: your easyMAIL password
Ports: 25, 465, 587, 2025, 20025
TLS (optional): 25, 465 (SSL), 587, 2025, 2026, 20025, 20026


POP (Post Office Protocol) is a one-way ticket. You connect to our easyMAIL server in a one time pop and download a copy of your e-mail then disconnect. With a POP set up, you can’t be managing your easyMAIL via multiple devices (mobile smartphone, laptop, tablet, etc). There is no two-way synchronisation between easyMAIL and your device. You have to delete or file the same email on every device.

IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) is the two-way e-mail management preferred by users with multiple devices (mobile smartphone, laptop, tablet, etc). If you are viewing your e-mail via your mobile phone, then it will show as viewed on any other device you check your mail through. All e-mail management is synchronised cutting downtime if you happen to check e-mail from multiple devices.

Quota Enforcement Policy

easyMAIL quota is set to 250 messages/recipients per day [24 hour period] by default. This is calculated on a per-user [mailbox] basis, not on an aggregate per-domain basis. Further to this, as each user is able to send 250 messages per day [or 250 recipients], it incorporates a decay in the counter based on the quota allowance. There isn’t a time that clears the cutoff and resets the amount to your daily maximum – it is based on the time elapsed since the user last attempted to send a message. If you’ve hit your daily maximum of 250 messages/recipients, you will have to wait typically around 6 minutes before the counter to drop one so you can send another message – wait 20 minutes and you can send 3 more and so on. This effectively allows you to send messages earlier than waiting for a reset time [often at midnight] and will reduce problems to those mailboxes that have been compromised on the user end as it effectively locks it. You could use up your whole allowance in one e-mail to 250 recipients.


NOTE: To use easyMAIL with other DNS providers, please specify our easyMAIL MX record within your DNS settings:

Pref: 0

This server is not to be used for IMAP or POP connections, ONLY for the MX record.
