How to set up your swissmail.org account for Windows Mail

You will need the following information to setup your swissmail.org email account:

 

You will find the necessary information by accessing your account via our WebSite at www.swissmail.org. To get your account specific information, log into your account, click on the ControlCenter button, click on "Accountdata" in the left hand navigation menu and scroll down to "Mailbox (POP3/IMAP) access settings".

Now you are ready to get started!

 

Click on the Add button in the upper right.

In the Select Account Type window, double-click on E-mail Account.

In the Your Name window, type in the name you want your recipients to see when they receive your e-mails, then click on Next.

In the Internet E-mail Address window, type in your e-mail address, then click on Next.

In the Set up e-mail servers window, enter the e-mail server information.

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)
 IMAP with SSL (secure): secure.swissmail.org
 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.

 

Log into your swissmail.org account, select “Controlcenter” and then “Accountdata” at the left to find your username.

In the Internet Mail Logon window, enter your username and password for your e-mail account (you don't need to enter the password, but if you do, you will automatically log on to the e-mail server every time you open Windows Mail as long as the check is in the box next to Remember Password).

 

You should see the following screen; check the Do not download my e-mail and folders at this time box, then click Finish.

At the top of the Properties window that appears, click on the Advanced tab and verify your settings are the same as in the image below.

Server Port Numbers

Incoming mail (IMAP/POP): Enter the appropriate port number of the IMAP/POP mail server.
• IMAP no SSL (unsecure): 143
This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) - Do not select this option.
• IMAP with SSL (secure): 993

Now click on the IMAP tab and, in the Root folder path: blank, enter mail/. Also uncheck the box for Check for new messages in all folders.

Click Ok to save all of these settings, then Close to exit the Internet Accounts window. Windows Mail will now ask you if you would like to retrieve your mail.

 

Congratulations, you have successfully set up Windows Mail to handle your e-mail!
