Business Email Hosting Only.

The settings below will help you set up your email in no time.

Your business email package can be set up with or without SSL.  We recommend using the SSL setting to avoid conflicts with your mail client and secure your email.

Username: Always Full Email Address email@yourdomainname.co.nz

NON-SSL Settings

imap.yourdomainname.co.nz/com Port 465
pop.yourdomainname.co.nz/com Port 110
smtp.yourdomainanme.co.nz/com Port 25

SSL Secure Settings

us2.imap.mailhostbox.com Port 993
us2.pop.mailhostbox.com Port 995
us2.smtp.mailhostbox.com Port 587

Use TLS/SSL when using SSL secure settings, if TLS/SSL doesn’t work with your email client use STARTTLS, Microsoft Outlook will generally use STARTTLS.

If you are having password issues, visit your domain webmail URL and use the forgot password option to reset your password.  The URL will be:
http://webmail.yourdomain

If you wish to have personalised SSL certificate settings and secure webmail, a secure certificate will need to be purchased and applied to your account instead of using the server-based SSL. You can request this through our support ticket system here.

The above settings will be the same for your mobile device. By default, most devices will use IMAP as their default setting. The non-SSL settings are often applied if you use the wizard to configure your email on your device. We recommend setting up your device manually using the above SSL secure settings unless you have your own installed SSL certificate.

The settings if you have your own SSL certificate applied to your email will be

imap.yourdomainname.co.nz/com Port 993
pop.yourdomainname.co.nz/com Port 995
smtp.yourdomainname.co.nz/com Port 587

What is the difference between IMAP and POP?

Certainly! Here’s an improved version:

“IMAP and POP are two different email protocols with a significant distinction in how they handle your emails.

When you use POP, your emails are typically downloaded from the server to your local device, and depending on your email client’s settings, they may be kept on the server for a certain period, usually around 14 days, or removed immediately after downloading. This essentially means that your emails reside primarily on your device.

On the other hand, with IMAP, your emails are stored on the server itself. This allows seamless access to your emails from multiple devices, as they act as windows into the same mailbox. Any action taken on an email—such as reading, deleting, or moving—is reflected across all devices accessing the same email account. Think of it as a synchronised view of your mailbox across devices.

It’s important not to confuse IMAP with Exchange Mail, as they are distinct systems with their own functionalities and features.”
