cPanel Email Settings for Apple Mail and Outlook

These email settings are only valid for setting up email accounts for your cPanel hosting services with Apple Mail and/or Outlook.

Secure SSL/TLS Settings (Recommended)
Username: Your email address
Password: Use the email account’s password (the one you setup in cPanel)
Incoming Server:
  • IMAP Port: 993
  • POP3 Port: 995
Outgoing Server:
  • SMTP Port: 465
IMAP, POP3, and SMTP require authentication.


  • IMAP email access coordinates between the server and your mail application. Messages that have been read/deleted/replied to will show up as such, both on the server and in the mail application.
  • POP3 does not coordinate with the server. Messages marked as read/deleted/replied to in the mail application will not show up as such on the server. This means that future mail downloads with POP3 will show all messages as unread.
  • Outgoing mail is sent using SMTP.
  • We recommend using POP3 over SSL/TLS or IMAP over SSL/TLS since they provide increased security for your interactions with the remote mail server.
