email settings changed again

To improve performance, Jimmy has moved to a new server again.  If you are happy to send and receive mail without security (SSL) then hopefully you won’t know what the fuss is about, and everything will still be working as ever.  If you use SSL then the server names for incoming and outgoing mail have changed from coventry01 to RL08.  But see below for future-proof server.

 Jimmy has installed a simpler solution that will prevent the need to change your settings again in future.  Use as the server both in and out, and SSL will work on that server forever amen.  You may get some warnings that the certificate is not valid but Jimmy assures me that it actually is and you can ignore them.

SSL settings to avoid future changes are:
Incoming Server:
• IMAP: Port 993
• POP3: Port 995
Outgoing Server:
• SMTP: Port 465

Here again are the older settings that will hopefully work on any server, but do not support SSL

Incoming Server:
• IMAP: Port 143
• POP3: Port 110

Outgoing Server:
• SMTP: Port 26

If in doubt get in touch with me or with Jimmy.

  1. I am Carol Lewis, writing in regard to the teaching position. My husband, Jeff asked me to do this as he is away from his computer. He is a retired teacher. We would like to get away from the Arizona heat. Please see his website for more information about him.

    We would also like to what is meant by “alternative lifestyle”. Thank you for any information you can supply.
