How to add a port number in the SmarterMail 16?

This article will help you how to add a port number in the SmarterMail 16

SmarterMail servers support both POP and IMAP protocols for incoming mail servers and SMTP via submission ports for outgoing mail.

Standard Non-SSL ports can be used:
POP3: 110
IMAP: 143
SMTP: 587 (Submission port)

SSL ports are recommended: POP3: 995
IMAP: 993
SMTP: 465 (Submission port)

SSL/TLS are security protocols that allow the transmission of data to be encrypted. This allows users to access email through a third-party email client without the fear that someone has intercepted their data. SSL will encrypt the connection immediately upon connection. TLS will encrypt once the STARTTLS command is sent. TLS will need to be set up over port 25, 110, 143 and SSL over ports 465, 993, and 995.

Below are the steps to add port number from the SmarterMail 16.

  1. Login into SmarterMail 16 dashboard with the domain administrator user.

  2. Click on the Settings icon.

  3. Click the Bindings from the left-hand side, click Ports from the right-hand side pane.
