If you wish to use an imap account, select imap instead of pop3. *IMPORTANT* please check with your project manager before choosing imap, you will be required to upgrade your account
Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP): mail.yourdomain.com.au (server requires authentication) Port: 26
Only use Port: 25 when using your internet service providers (ISP) Network. eg smtp.bigpond.com.au
Also note; Due to the battle against spam some ISP's may require different settings. Below are a list of other settings to try;
SMTP: mail.yourdomain.com.au.com OR smtp.yourdomain.com.au
Ports: smtp ports 25, 26 or 8025, or smtp over SSL port 465 or 8026
Then set 'YES' to 'My SMTP server requires authentication'
Avoid using SSL where possible
Always set your email program to delete the mail from server at least weekly! otherwise your mailbox will increase in size and eventually use up all your allocated mailbox storage quota.
Always set your email client to send and receive automatically every 10mins. This goes along way to reducing potential issues.
Please refer to your email program documentation on steps for setting up your email account as setting can differ
