Server Information

Incoming mail server (IMAP): Choose one of the following incoming POP/IMAP* mail servers:
• IMAP no SSL (unsecure): imap.swissmail.org (or imap.generalmail.com or imap.dombox.com)

• POP no SSL (unsecure): pop.swissmail.org (or imap.generalmail.com or imap.dombox.com)
• POP with SSL (secure): secure.swissmail.org

*POP and IMAP are protocols used by your email client. We recommend to use the IMAP protocol, as this protocol offers you the possibility to synchronize your emails between your PC/Mac and our server, i.e. your emails will not be deleted from our server (unless you delete them), whereas POP3 downloads the emails to your PC/Mac and deletes them from our server.
