Cambria offers our hosting customers two ways of retrieving e-mail:
- We can forward your messages to an existing account.
- You may use an e-mail program such as Eudora, Thunderbird, Courier, or Microsoft Outlook. Follow the instructions below to set up Cambria-hosted accounts in your e-mail program.
E-mail Setup Instructions
When setting up a new e-mail account in most programs, you will first be asked to enter your name as you would like it to display and your e-mail address. Then you will be asked to enter server information. The information below will tell you what to enter for these steps. Please contact us if you have any questions as you set up your account.
Incoming Mail Server (POP3)
Your POP3 (incoming mail) server is clientmail.cambria.com. Use the POP3 login name assigned to you by the e-mail administrator. Your POP3 login name is not the same as your e-mail address. For example, if your e-mail address is "firstname.lastname@example.org", your POP3 login will be something like "abc-user".
Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP)
Use the SMTP server provided by your own Internet Service Provider (e.g., Comcast, Verizon, Earthlink, etc.). This will usually be something like "mail.<your_isp>.com" or "smtp.<your_isp>.com". For more details, or for any problems with outgoing email, contact your ISP's tech support department.
To protect yourself from viruses and from offensive pictures in spam, do not send or receive HTML e-mail. Set your e-mail software to send and view all email as plain text.
Be sure that your e-mail software is configured to delete your messages from the server after you have downloaded them. Leaving e-mail on the server after you have downloaded it wastes disk space and reduces server performance for everyone.
