Email SMTP IMAP setup with Faceless
Using your IONOS email account is not as hard as it looks. You can use your Ionos email with any kind of email program. All you need to do is simply enter your email credentials and IONOS email server settings in the program of your choice. Continue reading to see how you can simply set up your email SMTP IMAP in just a few steps and how to set up IMAP for your iPhone or Android.
What is SMTP?
First before starting anything you need to know exactly what and why you are doing it. So, let’s start off with, “What is STMP? “STMP stands for simple mail transfer protocol. It is an internet protocol. This is used for exchanging your emails. It is used whenever an email is sent from an email account – SMTP is, therefore, the opposite of the Internet protocols POP3 and IMAP, which are used to receive emails.
Simple Mail Protocol is automatically set up inside the IONOS program.
You will be able to begin immediately sending out your emails. If you decide to use another email program such as Outlook, Apple Mail, or Thunderbird, you first have to set up incoming and outgoing server settings. For example IMPA and SMTP. So before you can send emails from your IONOS account. The recommended SMTP port is 587 along with the TLS (or STARTTLS) security type. Alternatively, you can use port 465 with SSL as the security type. As a last resort, you can use port 25, but this choice is unsecured and therefore not recommended.
What is IMAP
IMAP stands for Internet Message Access Protocol. This enables online access to an email box. Unlike with post office protocol 3, or known as POP, the emails are not completely loaded from the server and then deleted. Instead, only the message you are currently reading is loaded. This message then remains on the server and can be retrieved from that spot at any time.
IMAP offers you multiple advantages when using. Some of these advantages include: Messages are able to be deleted directly on the server. You can do this without needing to download it first. First, only the header (sender, date, subject) of an email is loaded. You can decide whether you want to download the email.
You are also able to retrieve your mailbox with multiple different clients at the same time. Another advantage is folders can be created on your server to help you better manage your messages. Use the mailbox on different computers, e.g. at home, in the office, or on the road.
The server saves the status of an email (e.g. read/unread, answered, etc.). This allows you to see at any time which emails have not yet been processed. Sent messages can also be archived in the IMAP mailbox. You have access to your complete email correspondence at any time.
Your Step-by-Step Instructions to IMAP
Step One: Open your Microsoft Outlook and click on the file inside the menu dropdown. Under your account information, click on Add Account. Click on Manual setup or additional server types. Click next. Select POP or IMAP and click Next.
Step Two: Enter your user and server login information. Select IMAP or POP. In this case, we recommend using IMAP. If you want to retrieve your email using POP3, select Account type POP3 in the Server information. Enter pop.ionos.com as your incoming mail server. The other account settings are the same as for IMAP.
