Setting Email Step by Step

POP3 and Which is the POP3 default port 

Post Office Protocol version 3 (POP3) adalah sebuah standard protocol mail yang digunakan untuk menerima email dari server yang jauh ke server local klien. Dengan POP3, email dapat di-download ke komputer lokal dan dapat dibaca meskipun pada saat offline. Sebagai catatan, ketika POP3 digunakan untuk koneksi ke akun email, semua email di-download dikomputer setempat dan terhapus dari server. Hal ini artinya sangat tidak efektif mengakses email di beberapa lokasi dengan perangkat yang berbeda. Disisi lain, dengan POP3 maka akan menghemat kuota web server karena email-email di-download di komputer local.

Secara default, protokol POP3 beroperasi pada 2 ports:

  • Port 110 - POP3 non-encrypted port
  • Port 995 - port yang dibutuhkan untuk konektivitas yang aman

What is IMAP and which are the default IMAP ports

The Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) is a mail protocol used for accessing email on a remote web server from a local client. IMAP and POP3 are the two most commonly used Internet mail protocols for retrieving emails. Both protocols are supported by all modern email clients and web servers.

While the POP3 protocol assumes that your email is being accessed only from one application, IMAP allows simultaneous access by multiple clients. This is why IMAP is more suitable for you if you're going to access your email from different locations or if your messages are managed by multiple users.

By default, the IMAP protocol works on two ports:

  • Port 143 - this is the default IMAP non-encrypted port
  • Port 993 - this is the port you need to use if you want to connect using IMAP securely


What is SMTP and which are the default SMTP ports

Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) is the standard protocol for sending emails across the Internet.

By default, the SMTP protocol works on three ports:

  • Port 25 - this is the default SMTP non-encrypted port
  • Port 2525 - this port is opened on all SiteGround servers in case port 25 is filtered (by your ISP for example) and you want to send non-encrypted emails with SMTP
  • Port 465 - this is the port used, if you want to send messages using SMTP securely
